The Gearheads slide into 4-high and spend an evening talking design, marketing, technology and inspiration with Jonathan Ward, the founder and CEO of ICON 4×4 and TLC. Known for their modern take, yet charmingly nostalgic-in-character FJ and Bronco and Derelict builds, the company is blazing new paths through design and forward thinking. We go deep into the “why.”
The Speedkore 1970 Charger, known as Evolution, shows the culmination of ideas and technology that put them on the industry map as one of the premier custom builders in the country. With a body made nearly completely out of carbon fiber, a high horsepower Hemi, and an impeccable attention to detail showing high quality craftsmanship, the Evolution Charger is sure to turn the automotive world on it’s head when it debuts at the SEMA show in 2018.
On a special pre-SEMA Show 2018 episode, the Gearheads welcome David Salvaggio and Lyle Brummer of Speedkore. We talk carbon fiber, carbon fiber Chargers and then Alex asks more questions about carbon fiber. We also talk World Record-holding Dodge Demons, engineering, business, a plea for a Jamaican Rally Car Team, and then Alex asks about carbon fiber again.
