2017 Feature Interviews

1932 Ford Street Rod

The Mean Green Machine
Green Machine

Larry interviewed Mike Duncan from Industrial Finishes and Systems. Stuart Barr had the folks at his company build this fantastic looking street rod. Watch for Mike's exit to hear how great this car sounds... we liked it so much, it made the cut in our 2017 RDR trailer!

1939 Chevrolet Hardtop Coupe

Halo - Custom 39 Coupe

Greg interviewed owner Jerry Kjensrud. Halo is an all steel chopped and channeled 39 coupe with extensive custom body mods making it a top car in any show it attends. It has an oval display that perfectly matches the car's accents. Jerry even gave us a little tire spin action while we were shooting at the end of the event!

1100 HP Charger

Greg interviewed owner David Sancewich. The built 440 puts out 1100HP and 1000 ft-lb of torque and has lots of upgrades to handle that kind of power. The story David tells about how he got the car will have you smiling. We caught video of the car exiting the show, and you will like what you hear!

1958 Pontiac Bonneville


Larry interviewed owner Dennis Montgomery. He recreated a car he owned back in 1962, but took this restoration all the way. The vibrant colors available today helped make this car a show standout.

1956 Chevy Cameo Pickup

Cameo Pickup

Greg interviewed owner Les Allen. This beautiful Cameo took him over 10 years to complete, but was worth the wait. Les use to be a drag racer so in addition to all the great things he did to make the truck look nice, it is dyno'd at around 600 HP! The video includes photos he supplied of the video and some from a photo shoot.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette


Greg interviewed owner John Callison who loves his car, but after 20 years got tired of it sitting so much and decided to give it upgrades to make it a more enjoyable car to drive and enjoy... which turned out to be most of the car.

1961 Custom Chevrolet Impala


Larry interviewed owner Roy Wells. This fabulous Impala is slammed and tubbed, with 16 inch wide tires on the back... then consider the nice color combination, a strong motor, and leather interior... and you end up with one sweet bubble top. Hear Roy talk about why he went with coil overs in the back and air ride in the front, while salivating on some sweet visuals of the car.

1953 Alvis Drophead


Greg interviewed Alvis owner Dave Rasmussen. This English car is very popular in parades partially because of the multiple top configurations. This is also the car and color scheme of Superman and Dave explains some of that in this interview.
