Calling All Cars! Hedman Hedders Is Looking For Cars For R&D Dept.

Face it, we all like getting free stuff. Hedman Hedders is happily giving away free hedders to some lucky hot rodders and muscle car lovers who live in the Southern California area and who are willing to help them out for a bit. Hedman’s R&D Department is currently in need of quite a few cars that they can use for vehicle for test fitting and/or CARB testing.

As you can imagine, this is going to take Hedman a little bit of time, so you’ve got to be willing to leave your car at Hedman’s Whittier, Ca. facility for a while (the time required depends on the development needed), as well as be willing to sign a release allowing Hedman Hedders to photograph and use pictures of your vehicle in marketing materials.

Of course, some race applications are needed too, but that will be at Hedman’s Alpharetta, Georgia facility; so you must live near Alpharetta, Georgia to qualify there.

If Hedman uses your car for prototyping or testing, you’ll receive a set of installed hedders at no charge. Sounds pretty good, right? You bet it does. Not only are you getting a free set of top-tier hedders out of this, but you’re also helping grow the aftermarket. We’ve included Hedman’s wish list of cars below, so if your vehicle is listed, please email Hedman’s R&D project co-ordinator, Kevin Vandergriff at [email protected]
