TMCP #434: Scott Bowers – How COVID-19 Has Impacted Manufacturing at Ron Francis Wiring; Pro-Touring Update with Larry Callahan
This week, at long last, I caught up with a very busy guy Scott Bowers. Scott is the president of Ron Francis wiring and I wanted to get his story about how they are coping with the Covid-19 pandemic. They are a manufacturer and located on the East Coast, two components of the equation that I was curious about. I was amazed at his candor regarding the situation but not too surprised at the answers.
TMCP #429: The Real Scoop with NPD’s Rick Schmidt: How Will The Covid-19 Shutdown Affect The Automotive Restoration Business Economy?
Happy May 2020! With some of the country starting to re-open I thought that this episode would be appropriate for a special edition all “Ask Rick” show with Rick Schmidt from NPD. Rick’s monthly segment has been highly popular with so many of you due to his straightforward approach to all questions asked, and I specifically wanted to hear how COVID-19 is affecting the automotive aftermarket and restoration economy. The short answer is…things aren’t exactly as you think they might be!

COVID-19 Edition: Well – the U.S. has finally come to terms with the Coronavirus pandemic, and even though we were going to take this week off we thought we should come together to discuss it.
We know that MANY of you do not have the option to realistically work from home. The intent of this show was to learn who is where, who is doing what, and how we’re all getting through it. Yes, there’s even good news in here too. And some inappropriate jokes….as you would expect (there’s always time for that).
Stay safe, be smart, stay positive, and do your best to help your fellow man. If we all do that…we can get back to doing the dumb car stuff we love the most!
