Episode Info:

Do you love hot rods, vintage cars and going really fast?

In this episode, Larry Webster, Editor-in-Chief at Hagerty Magazine, talks about all three with Mark Stielow. An engineer and manager at General Motors, Mark has been called the "Godfather" of the Pro-Touring movement, and he still builds cars out of his garage.

"To me, a pro-touring car is just kind of taking an older car that you like the esthetics of and you harden perform better and be more reliable," says Mark.  "You can do things with it like go on cross-country drives or to track events."

Mark speaks with Larry about building a career that dovetails with his passion. He talks about racing at One Lap of America in a ’69 Camaro, and how he found the car in the pre-internet days for $2500, which launched his hot rod career. The car ended up on the cover of Car Craft Magazine. Hot Rod Magazine voted it one of top 10 cars of 1993. 

Mark also provides tips on buying and rebuilding cars.
