This week’s podcast show guest is our old pal Mike Hawley from Heidts. Mike was last on the show exactly 100 episodes ago and was one of the first guests I ever had on. I originally met him on the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour while he was driving the white ’71 Heidts Camaro, and he’s been a pal to me ever since (which did include autocross rides). He’s probably the most connected person in the industry that I’ve ever met, and if you ever meet him at a show he’ll give you the inside scoop on everyone and everything in the industry! He loves what he does, loves fast cars, and loves people. He’s a pretty capable driver as well, which comes in handy when trying to demonstrate high performance suspension components! Sine he was last on the show he took a brief hiatus from Heidts over to Schwartz Performance for a while, but he’s now back at Heidts and is raring to go.

During the interview Mike went over the new product lineups from Heidts, the biggest of which include their PRO-G bolt-in rear independent suspension kits for first and second generation Camaro’s, ’62’67 Nova’s, and ’64 1/2 to ’70 Mustangs! The kits include absolutely everything required for a full installation, feature inboard brakes, and are fully adjustable. All else that’s required is to throw on a set up wheels and bolt up the driveshaft! Heidts has also recently merged with Kenny Brown Performance, a name that is going to be very familiar with fans high performance suspension systems for Fox Body and newer Mustangs.

Thanks for the interview, Mike, and I’m looking forward to my next ride!
