Champion Cooling Systems’ inaugural car show was held at their facility in Lake Elsinore, California on Saturday, April 14, 2018.
Sponsored by Hagerty Classic Cars, COMP Performance Group, Edelbrock Performance, K&N Filters and Lucas Oil, the show was a rousing success, featuring an amazing array of classic and muscle cars, live music, contests, prizes, and a variety of foods and drink.
A highlight from this video of the show is an interview with Randy Siegert, owner of a peerless 1931 Ford Model A hot rod, that he restored and built himself. This blazing red beast features a Ford powerplant, automatic transmission, 9-inch rear with 3.70-gears and cooling by, surprise, surprise, Champion Cooling Systems.
Another car at the show featured in the video is Lee Norris’ 1966 Ford Mustang GT Coupe. This deep red, stunning, six-cylinder pony car features Champion Cooling as well.
An interview with Champion Cooling Systems’ product development manager Matt Dawson also features prominently in the clip. He explains the many models of cars that Champion makes cooling systems for, including complete custom fabrication and one-off radiators.
The bulk of the second half of the video shows dozens of the fabulous cars that were at the inaugural event, including muscle cars, hot rods, dragsters, and classics. All in all, the video is a concise but informative overview of what looks to have been a great show.
And yes, owing to the success of this year’s event, there will be a second annual show.
