    TMCP #446: Holley MOPARTY 2020 Special #3 – Richard Meyers, The Very First Charger 500 – Tim Wellborn, Driving the K&K Insurance Daytona in the Footsteps of Legends – Pro-Touring Update with Larry Callahan

    This week is the third of several interviews from the first ever Holley "MOPARTY" event held in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Friend of the show (and Holley marketing superstar) Blane Burnett was able to line us up with some great interviews at the event with some famous people. MOPAR lovers young and old will recognize the names of many of our guests. Since SEMA was a no go this year, I was determined to make the Holley MOPARTY a better than fitting replacement to our yearly special segments live from the event. The episode features the VERY FIRST Charger 500 ever built as well as the world famous (and Bonneville record setting) K&K Dodge Daytona!

    Moparty 2020: Mike Copeland of Arrington Performance

    Ty Peek of Holley

    This week is the second of several interviews from the first ever Holley "MOPARTY" event held in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Friend of the show (and Holley marketing superstar) Blane Burnett was able to line us up with some great interviews at the event with some famous people. MOPAR lovers young and old will recognize the names of many of our guests.

    Mike Copelands Rampage



    Mike Coplands Rampage



    Mike Copeland - Arrington Performance: There are many people I look forward to seeing at SEMA every year and Mike Copeland is one of them. He has been on the show many times and has the distinction of being the guest of the most downloaded show ever on the TMCP Podcast network!



    Since there is no SEMA this year, I was happy to see Mike at Moparty 2020 manning his very own Arrington Performance trailer. Of course he brought a brilliant vehicle with him, the Dodge Rampage from last years SEMA show for its very first showing out in public. He did give us the story behind the little orange car (with the big heart) and it is not a normal for most people story. It does include Dave from Dirt Every Day and a church selling cars for charity and everything worked out amazing in the end. Mike has raced the Rampage previously but did not try his hand at drag racing or auto cross at the event even though both venues were very close. I did ask about the Arrington business side and he told me how he purchased the business and it has been growing ever since. If you would like to learn what Arrington offers in Mopar performance products, check out shopHEMI.com.



    Rob, Ty and Corndog in the Holley display at Moparty 2020



    Ty Peek - Holley Performance R&D: Blane Burnett made sure that TMCP listeners would have a wide variety of great interviews including some tech savvy guests ready to enlighten you to Holley's many Mopar offerings. He directed me to Ty Peek, an EFI Systems Technician at Holley Performance who walked me through the current projects and maybe some upcoming products. The have many great items engineered above and beyond the norm, with features like headers that accommodate both left and right starters, or fuel injection systems that work on any engine you put it on. It was also great to hear that even Ty's bosses daily driver truck was there on display featuring many Holley products. You can hear the passion in Ty's voice as he talks about his job and the products they produce, and you know they love what they do at Holley Performance.



    Thanks for the great insights at the first annual Moparty!!!

    -Rob Kibbe

Rob does an outstanding job on Muscle Car Place

Rob does a great job digging into the stories of his guest. I've been listening for awhile to the Muscle Car Place podcast and really enjoy hearing about various automotive topics. I also like that Rob is from Iowa and as a midwest guy it nice to hear his perspecive of the automotive industry from the midwest. Keep up the good work Rob!

Best car podcast out there!!

Rob always seems to find the best guests and tells the best personal stories bout himself and the cars he loves. The ask Rick segment is something I always look forward to at the beginning of every month. I’ve bought a lot NPD products for my 68 GTO. So it’s really great to hear from the guy who runs it. Then the pro touring update with the granddaddy of pro touring always gets me hype just love all the info.
