Robert Mason isn't just a "Song and Dance Man", he's a car guy too! He sent us these beautiful shots of his cars and told us why he chose Silver Sport Transmissions:
" The only thing I didn’t love about my 1969 Corvette was the lack of an overdrive gear; I did a lot of research, and for me the SST TKO600 Perfect Fit kit was the right way to go! Everyone from SST was helpful and went the extra mile to ensure my satisfaction. Now, I look forward to shifting into 5th and enjoying the cruise!"
A true rock star, Robert is surrounded by ladies, the 1969 Corvette is Domino (a Bond girl), the 1965 Mustang Fastback is Cheri and the Colbra is Elvira. All of his guitars have female names too. Thanks, for sharing Robert! We'll see you down the road.

Lessons Learned on Hot Rod Power Tour 2018 - Jack Silver
It seems like the cars we drive today, rarely if ever give us problems. When I was growing up, back in the ‘60s, it wasn’t unusual to have flat tires, overheating or other mechanical issues when taking a trip.

We took two cars on the Power Tour this year, a ’70 Corvette and a ’65 Tempest.  The Tempest made it thru with flying colors…unfortunately the Vette didn’t do quite as well.
Just because your classic does well around town and you may have taken a long trip in it, that doesn’t mean you will not have problems on the Power Tour. I saw two prevalent problems among the cars on the tour.

The first issue was that many of the cars couldn’t keep up with the highway traffic.  The normal traffic on the road was running at 70 to 80 miles per hour.  Back in the day, 55 or 60 MPH was plenty and there weren’t as many highways to travel on.
The best upgrade you can make to your classic is to re-gear it with an overdrive transmission.  Our ’70 Vette was equipped with a 6 speed TREMEC® Magnum transmission and the Tempest used a 5 speed TREMEC TKO transmission. These cars cruised effortlessly at 70 to 80 MPH, got great gas mileage, and easily kept up with or passed the normal highway traffic.

These are not difficult installations or upgrades.  The Tempest was converted from an automatic transmission to the TREMEC TKO 5 speed in the days before the tour.  In fact, it was completed the day before the tour began and performed flawlessly.  The TKO 5 speed made a huge difference in the performance of the car.  Contact  Jeff@shiftsst.com or  Gene@shiftsst.com to see how easily this can be done for your classic.

The second most common problem we saw was overheating.  The Power Tour will really test your cooling system because there is a lot of stop and go driving…not to mention waiting in long lines with the engine running.

Although the Vette had never experienced an overheating problem before, it certainly did on the trip.  

We tried lots of options, even propping the hood up with a plastic water bottle to allow the heat to escape…but the bottle just melted and the temperature continued to rise. Eventually we had to just stop and let it cool off until the next time. This can really put a damper on your fun.
Bryan’s car, the ’65 Tempest had experienced cooling problems in the past.  So, prior to leaving, he installed a new Champion Cooling Systems aluminum radiator and cooling fans in his car.

This totally solved the Tempest’s cooling problems.  So, I already have a new Champion Cooling System ordered for the Vette.  When we install it, we will create a video showing you how easy the installation is.

If you would like to put a new Champion Cooling System in your car, please contact jeff@shiftsst.com or  gene@shiftsst.com .  You will be very pleased with the quality of the equipment and the pricing.

A REAL Camaro
Good morning, I have finally gotten my camaro back together and certainly enjoying drive it with your 5 speed. Here are a few pictures, I wish I could have took more pics of the install . However it was tough to get pictures when installing by myself. I really love the 5 speed transmission and enjoy telling folks at the shows that I turn my true candy apple red camaro back into a real Camaro. Enjoy the pictures and thanks to all at Silver Sport for the greatest experience !
