march ultra track pack

SEMA is all about New Products !
This year there were 194 New products in the Hot Rod and Restoration section and  over 500 in Racing and Performance.  One that we really liked was the new March Performance Ultra Track Pack.  THe kit includes Chrome Ultradrive front mount serpentine system with new Chrome Style Track Air Cleaner and Style Trace Valve Cover Accent Emblems. We’ll have all of the details on this and hundreds more of the New Products introducted at SEMA this year in our SEMA New Products Article coming up soon. 


Wherever we go, we have the best time talking with old friends...  here at SEMA was no exception.  Here we have a get together of some real industry icons.... a bunch of guys who were involved in publishing the earliest  F 100 and truck magazines in our industry.  Todd Kaho,  Jim Clark,  Seth Dalton and Jim Ries.  It was actually Jims dad Jack Ries  who worked in publishing with the others .... .

Jim was just a kid then but he grew up watching these guys and has gone on to become an icon on his own as the owner of Classic Performance Parts.  We’ll be bringing you more about the fantastic parts at CPP soon.   You’ll recognize Jim Clark as our own  Hot Rod M.D., Todd is a freelance photographer,  Seth Dalton is now a show promoter and PR man. All great guys !


HotRod HotLine had TWO booths at SEMA this year... our regular booth and right down the aisle we had one of our customers cars showcased.  A great looking 32 Roadster that’s listed for sale here on   The thing that turned heads on this car is that the engine is a 1969 all aluminum ZL1 427, one of 150 ever made. The fuel injection is a Mechanical Hilborn converted to electronic fuel injection. Take a look
