The Shell Pioneering Performance Stage at SEMA 2018, Part 2 | #357
The action from the Shell Pioneering Performance Stage is back for our final episode of coverage from SEMA 2018. Among those affected by the string of hurricanes these past few years was legendary designer and CEO of Hennessey Performance, John Hennessey. That's why he's very appreciative of Nissan's Paws One Titan XD build on display at the show, as well as his Shell and Pennzoil extended family that helped him through the crisis of Hurricane Harvey. We also learn more about the Hennessey Venom F5, which is set to break the 300 mph production car barrier. Next up, Brembo North America President and CEO, Dan Sandberg, shares how they're using the power of artificial intelligence (A.I.) to design the toughest brakes in the industry. Then, Dan is joined by Automotive Journalists, Nik Miles, and Automotive/Motorcycle Industry Insider Mike Caudill, from Our Auto Expert to discuss the Nissan Paws One Titan and Nexen Tire's 'American Muscle for American Heroes' initiative. Changing lanes, eBay Motors Parts & Accessories Senior Director, Jordan Hettinga, gives us some astounding stats about the presence of eBay motors, including a catalog of 80 million car parts. Shifting gears, Owner of the 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback (Bullitt - '559), Sean Kiernan, Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) President, Mark Gessler, and "Barn Find Hunter" Host, Tom Cotter, chronicle the unique history of Steve McQueen's legendary film-car. Tom also issues a warning: rust never sleeps, so keep your vehicles out of the weather! Then, "Big Chris" Smith and Dennis Collins of Black Mountain Jeep, and Restore A Muscle Car Owner and Operator, Dave Hall, trade wild car stories, pay their respects to industry icon Chip Foose, and talk about their favorite classics. Closing out the show, Koester Racing Driver, Larry Koester, Tjin Edition Roadshow Automotive Designer, Neil Tjin, and his son, Collin Tjin, talk about the therapeutic properties of getting behind the wheel and going for a drive. We also learn about Tjin family projects, including a Ford Mustang design-off between father and son, in conjunction with Vaughn Gittin, Jr. Don't miss the final episode of SEMA 2018 coverage.
