Hotchkis Suspension to reenact McQueen Mustang chase

Share this Post:

Well, here’s a little break from all the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang hoopla…let’s talk about this year’s upcoming SEMA show in ‘Vegas.  This year’s show is going to be no exception from those past, with loads of aftermarket concepts pouring into the exhibition halls, inciting excitement & disgust all the same.  One cool happening to take note of this time around is a very slick reenactment.  No, not the Civil War kind, where participants get to nap for 4 hours while “playing dead”, but the type where a tribute to one of the greats is laid forth.

The folks at Hotchkis Sport Suspension are going to bring the one of the most renowned car chase scenes of all time to life for all to see.  That’s right, McQueen’s dream will be replayed once again, for all to see, firsthand.

Keep reading to get the full scoop in the Press Release which follows, as there’s much more going on there than this simple scene of awesomeness.
