This week’s podcast features Kevin Tully & Chad Hill of Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle
from Addison, Illinois. During the interview they discussed how fate conspired to bring them together to start creating top notch Hot Rods, Race cars, and the fabulous Raybestos '64 GTO-R
giveaway car! These guys get into everything from traditional Hot Rods to Gassers, pickup trucks to road race cars, and even building custom parts.
Chad Hill is an Indiana farm boy turned "graphic designer" with a specialty in marketing and advertising, but with a strong affinity for cars. Chad's personal car is a 1967 Chevelle SS convertible. Chad met Kevin by doing some small graphic work and tee shirts for him until eventually Kevin approached him to start designing cars.
Kevin Tully is a fabricator that has learned from the best and is "always learning" new, state of the art techniques. He has many years of experience in various fields of fabrication from aircraft, to race cars and old WWII era vehicles.
The Raybestos '64 GTO-R project (inspired by Herb Adams "Grey Ghost" Trans-Am era GTO) has garnered HRCC national attention and is one very cool racer/show car.
It’s been featured in numerous media outlets including Hot Rod TV and also many magazines. HRCC built the chassis from scratch, designed a custom rear suspension, and put countless other touches into it. With over 700 horsepower on tap, and weighing in at less than 3000 pounds, it’s an absolute missile!
Thanks for the interview Kevin and Chad!
