Cars That Matter

25 - Jack Chisenhall and Vintage Air

Aug. 3, 2020

From Vintage Air: Jack Chisenhall, President and Founder, and recipient of the Petersen Lifetime Achievement Award, shares his experiences retrofitting older, classic cars with new systems, his time driving on the Bonneville Salt Flats, and what will be the future for 'historic cars'.

After a brief introduction, Robert jumps straight to Jack's early love of cars and how he began his career of working with automobiles (0:24) and the first time he attended the Street Rod Nationals (4:21). Then the men share their experiences as cars evolved to have air conditioning and how Jack began retrofitting air systems into older models (7:15). Then Robert takes a moment to reflect on Jack's Petersen Lifetime Achievement Award (8:13). Following a short break, Jack tells about his time driving on the Bonneville Salt Flats (10:17), then Robert asks Jack to share the details of his personal car collection (14:13) and Robert asks Jack his 'any three cars' question (17:38). Jack then explains how he approaches designing new systems for classic cars (20:01) and Robert questions how Vintage Air approaches exotic cars (), before Robert asks Jack about the most difficult 'car' he ever worked on (25:56) and the oldest car he ever worked on (27:54). They conclude the conversation by considering the future of 'historic cars' (28:18).
