SEMA Frenzy!

Once a year, a frenzy takes over CPP as we prepare for the industry's largest trade show…SEMA! It is a large undertaking, but one we really enjoy as this enormous business-to-business show brings the biggest and best out for a week in the desert. This year, we stepped up our game and expanded our booth in the main hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Our 1957 Chevrolet chassis was a crowd pleaser along with the 2nd Gen Camaro, early Nova, and Mustang subframes which showed off our latest and greatest parts like the ALL NEW C5 spindles and 400 Series Power Steering Boxes. We were excited to meet up with many builders and owners of some beautiful show cars on display, featuring CPP products. In fact, the 1957 project car — "Bad in Blue", tricked-out by Kelly & Son Crazy Painters (Bellflower, California) was unveiled at SEMA to a large and enthusiastic audience. Other vehicles on display featuring CPP parts included: a 1964 Ford Falcon, a couple of '67 C/10s and a '64 Cadillac Coupe Deville. Check out our video and get an up front and personal view of the SEMA show and feature vehicles.

CPP in the News, Again!

It’s seems like every time you turn around CPP is being talked about in print or video.

Recently, Jim Campisano, editor of Super Chevy magazine, caught-up with our very own Jim Ries to discuss the amazing performance of Greg Barkley’s 1972 Camaro, which was fitted with a complete CPP suspension package.

The interview was conducted at the 5th Annual Super Chevy Suspension & Handling Challenge, held at the El Toro testing facility.

Watch the video, then check out the January 2013 issue of Super Chevy for the complete story.

Hot Rod Unlimited Features CPP

Nothing like dragging a 4-decade old car out of the desert sand (literally!), swapping out some brake, steering and suspension parts (from CPP, of course!) and hitting the track for some serious pounding. All this was captured on a recent YouTube episode of “Hot Rod Unlimited”.

Host David Freiburger, Hot Rod magazine's editor-in-chief rescued a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been abandoned in an Arizona backyard for 33 years. With some help from Source Interlink’s Tech Center Manager Grant Peterson, the car was outfitted with CPP’s Stage I Pro Touring kit, front disc brake kit, steering linkage, and 500 Series™ power steering box. Other than some new tires, the rest was left untouched.

Next, Freiburger and Camaro Performers magazine's Nick Licata took the Buick out to the El Toro testing facility and ran it through a series of tests. The results were amazing. Check out the video above; you won’t believe your eyes! Also, check out the full story in Hot Rod’s December 2012 issue.
