Jason Childress of Gateway Classic Mustang

In following with last week’s show format, this week’s show will feature three live interviews from the 2011 GoodGuys Heartland Nationals in Des Moines, IA. Our first guest was Jason Childress from Gateway Classic Mustang. Jason and his brother started their business like a lot of people do, by first building cars for themselves and getting noticed for it. Jason’s yellow Mustang coupe is an example of what their shop can do, and their passion for making early Mustangs go fast and handle is most definitely evident. Their unique torque arm setup really has their show car dialed in, and when it’s time for the ‘finale’ pass at a Good Guys Show it’s always Jason behind the wheel! He’s a former professional monster truck driver and is pure energy!

Dakota Digital's Camaro Gauge Setup. Just plug and play!

Our next guest was Greg Karpe from Dakota Digital. Dakota Digital has been around for years and was really the first on the market to bring digital gauges to classic cars. Recently they’ve brought in an entire line of digital gauges for the Chevelle, Camaro, and Firebird that are digital sweeping needle packages and have more lines on the way in the future. In addition, Dakota Digital can create any custom digital readout package you wish; you just need to call and ask!

A 3/4 ton muscle truck? Yes indeed!

Greg Johnson was our final guest, and in full disclose he is my brother-in-law. He is also the builder of a 1972 “muscle truck” 3/4 ton Chevy, and it can give many muscle cars on the street a run for their money. It features air bags on all four corners, custom designed by Greg himself, as well as a home-made rear sway bar. Truth be told, at this point on the autocross track the suspension wasn’t it’s weakness at all, but the old manual truck-geared transmission!
