Welcome to Episode 45 of  the Pro-Touring.com Podcast!

We’re simul-posting the show show here on TheMuscleCarPlace.com as well as on Pro-Touring.com so everyone can get their fix.

For those new to the scene, the Pro-Touring.com podcast show is hosted by myself and Larry Callahan, the owner of Pro-Touring.com.

The show is sponsored by the fantastic hot rod wiring supply company, Ron Francis Wiring, and we’re very appreciative that they were our FIRST EVER show sponsor, and the first sponsor to re-sign for 2013!

Larry Callahan and I, together again at Road America!

Live From Road America!

For the second year in a row Larry Callahan and I were able to cover the Optima Faceoff event together – in person! The event was a terrific success and featured the same format as before: Car Design and Build Quality, Autocross Time, Road Course Time, and Speed/Stop Time. Ride Tech’s own Bret Voelkel’s won the whole event with the best cumulative score in his ’33 Ford!

During the event we had a chance to hit a lot of people up for interviews. A few included:

-Bill Goldberg
-Brad Johnson (Custom Auto Rebuilders in Marion, IA – the original restorer of Rob’s Chevelle!)
-Karl Dunn (Owner of the ’68 Camaro named “Blue Balls”)
-Larry Woo (Sweeeeeeeeet ’68 Camaro)
-Mary Pozzi (Autocross Superwoman)
-Mike Copeland (Lingenfelter)
-Robert McGaffin (Photographer, Extraordinaire)
-Ryan Matthews (Detroit Speed and Engineering)
