Hedman’s new mid-length headers for small block, big block, and ls-swapped C-10s and C-20s maximize power and flow without sacrificing ground clearance.
Whittier, Calif. (November, 2013) – Chevrolet C10 and C20 pickup trucks have become one of the most popular classic trucks amongst enthusiasts thanks to their plentiful numbers, an abundance of available parts and, in the case of the C10, a stock car-style truck-arm suspension that perfectly complements a lowered stance. Adding to the popularity of these trucks is their ability to accept just about any Chevy V8 whether it be a classic small block, monster big block, or modern LS engine. However if your truck is lowered, traditional long tube headers can have major ground clearance issues leading to scraped and dented primary tubes. Now, with the release of Hedman’s new series of mid-length headers, C10/20 owners can get the most horsepower possible from their C10’s engine, without having to worry about costly header or exhaust system damage caused by diminished ground clearance.

CW Restoration Shop has a second vehicle it is bringing out to the 2013 SEMA Show – a 1957 Chevy Cameo pickup. This pickup hosts a number of upgrades from the Hedman Performance Group on its small block powerplant including a set of Hedman Hedders, Hamburger’s Performance Valve Covers, and a Trans Dapt dipstick. Emphasizing the smallest of details is what this truck is all about. Looking at the finish of the wood in the bed, the trim and gauges on the dash, and colored accenting throughout shows the kind of attention to detail that this world class builder put into this project.
This beautiful Cameo will be on display in the Griffin Thermal Products booth (#24935) of the SEMA Show in the Central Hall, so make sure you stop by and check it out. For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to CW Restoration Shop’s Facebook.

Billet aluminum oil filter relocation kits mount anywhere and plumb easily thanks to -12AN fittings and 180-degrees of rotation.
Whittier, Calif. (Oct, 2012) –Take the biggest, most powerful engine you can find and make it fit into your car’s engine bay – that is the basis of hot rodding. However, doing that can create any number of clearance issues, especially around the location of the oil filter. Even with the factory engine, there are still instances when filters can be hard to reach. Oil filter relocation kits were developed for just this reason, although with all of the different engine and car combinations, not everyone could use the same filter bases. Thankfully, Hamburger’s Performance Products has made an adjustable filter base that gives you complete freedom to mount your filter virtually anywhere. Read the rest of this entry →
Once a year the Southern California classic, muscle car, and hot rod communities descend upon the Orange County Fairgrounds to attend the Cruisin’ for a Cure Charity Car Show. Benefitting the City of Hope Foundation and raising money to fund Prostate Cancer research, this car show is the largest charity classic/custom auto show in the world and had over 3,400 cars in attendance for 2012. But this car show is more than just a fundraiser; it is a place to celebrate the automotive lifestyle. To help embrace this lifestyle, the show has more than just the normal rows of parked cars. Weaving throughout the show grounds is a half-mile long “Cruisin’” route that allows owners to fire up their rides and take part in one of the staples of American car culture – cruising.

Summer hasn’t officially started yet, but the action was heated on the shores of Virginia Beach this past weekend as Bigfoot and seven other monster trucks hit the Virginia Beach sand for the annual King Of The Beach competition.
After showing up for the inaugural event in 2000, Bigfoot and driver Dan Runte were on hiatus from the East Coast stop for nearly 13 years, but made the homecoming worth it for fans when Runte wheeled the massive pickup and its Hedman Husler hedders to the top of the field, being crowned King Of The Beach along the way.
