Welcome to Episode 48 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!

Feature Interview with John Hotchkis:

The New Mustang Suspension is Coming!

We were lucky enough to be able to grab a feature interview for the show with the man, the myth, and the racing legend himself – John Hotchkis! John is the founder of Hotchkis Performance Suspension and was making Pro-Touring suspension…..before Pro-Touring even existed! Today his company makes suspension components for many popular muscle cars (as well as many new cars), but to date they’ve never had an offering for the ’64-’70 Mustang crowd….until now!

During the show John discussed the big details behind their new product line, but many will be pleased to hear that true to their standard form the Hotchkis kit will be a bolt-on offering. This should come as a big relief to those of you that enjoy enhancing the original design intentions that Ford had for the Mustang, specially with the use of the shock towers (i.e. the Hotchkis kit will not be related in form to a Mustang II style setup).

John did reveal a few other tidbits inside the interview that we’ll leave exclusively there, but the big details will come out at the 2013 SEMA Show when they are unveiled officially.

Thanks for the interview, John!
