To car enthusiasts, your first car was a symbol of freedom. It gave you a way to explore the world beyond how far you could ride your bike and meant you didn’t have to rely on anyone else to get where you wanted to go. It didn’t matter if you had a rusty jalopy that barely ran, a hand-me-down from the parents or an older sibling, or, if you were one of the lucky ones, something that was the envy of all of your friends. Yancey Taylor definitely fits into the latter category as he was fortunate enough to receive a step-side ’66 C10 from his dad as a fifteenth birthday present. Read the rest of this entry →
The 2014 SEMA Show marks Hedman’s 60th Anniversary, and manufacturers like Hedman Hedders are gearing up to bring new products and amazing rides to this year’s show. We will also be taking this time to recognize our memorable past. This incredible milestone leads us to remember and honor, Bob Hedman’s, humble beginnings creating custom headers for fellow racers, including Wally Parks and his famous ’57 Savoy nicknamed “Suddenly”. Bob Hedman’s contribution to Suddenly would help Wally set a number of top speed records, like the one set in Daytona clocked at 166.893 mph.
In the past having a vehicle with a lowered stance meant either choosing a header that performed but was vulnerable to impacts or one that gave you adequate ground clearance at the expense of exhaust flow. With the increasing popularity of the Pro-Touring and Resto-Mod styles, enthusiasts need a header that can deliver both power and ground clearance. But where do you find a header that offers good exhaust flow without primaries that scrape on every speed bump? Enter the Hedman Pro-Touring Mid-Length Header.
The Hedman Headers Nostalgic Street Car Class lit up the Las Vegas Motor Speedway strip on September 5th – 7th,2014. The competition was stiff and the already blistering blacktop served as excellent proving grounds for the amazing rides of the Hedman class.
After a fierce round of qualifying, the drivers prepped their cars and buckled up for eliminations. Class veterans such as Steve Cox and Mike Nordahl put on an excellent show through the elimination rounds, but it was Jan Vanderpool and his Mustang that would leave Las Vegas victorious with the Wally. The final event of the NMCA West season takes place at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, CA October 24-26, 2014, and four racers are still in the hunt for Hedman Hedders’ coveted Nostalgia Street Car Class Championship Trophy and Ring.
Have you ever dreamed of dropping modern V8 power into your old school muscle car? How about dropping a supercharged LS3 into a 1972 Nova? You may have thought about it, but Norm Brown took the bull by the horns and made it happen. This Nova underwent a serious transformation to become the mean 72 muscle machine that you see here. With the help of Hedman Husler LS-swap headers and engine mounts Norm gave his Nova one heck of a heart transplant.“Those headers don’t hit the steering box, and those mounts bolt right up to the Nova sub-frame,” Norm explains. Thanks to the superb fitment of the Hedman parts the swap was painless for Norm and his ride.
