The car show featured representation from Cali SS Car Club (open to owners of ’94-’96 Impala SS and ’91-’96 B- and D-body GM vehicles), and SoCalSS Car Club (for owners of ’94-’96 Impala SS).

John Hotchkis, Hotchkis Performance Suspension founder, is a past professional racecar driver, and he brought out his Porsche 962 racer and fired up for the crowd.

A few Hotchkis-outfitted street customs where also on display including Mike Hickman’s full-custom eRod-LS3 powered Chevy C-10 pickup. Carson Lev, famed Hot Wheels designer, now part of the Chip Foose crew, also showed his clean Hotchkis-equipped ’59 Impala “Redphin” for everyone to enjoy. 

In addition to the car show, the Saturday event included free car care products from Mothers, a tour of the shop, tech talks given by John Hotchkis and his engineering staff, an advance look at new GM suspension components, a raffle for Hotchkis merchandise and discounts on products and a catered lunch.

 “Our open houses provide an excellent opportunity for enthusiasts to see how we make our products, discuss suspension tech issues with our engineers and get a sneak peek at our new development projects,” John Hotchkis said.
