Ken Callison’s first hot-rod project took a 1938 Chevrolet coupe that had been used as a chicken coop and turned it into a rolling work of art that’s still on the road today. That’s right: coupe to coop and back to coupe.

After serving as a machinist in the Navy, Callison went to work at Ford in 1970, but continued to produce parts for his and friends’ car projects. But 30 years ago, Callison got a request for a billet aluminum steering column, and an automotive aftermarket specialist company was born.

On October 1, ididit’s annual car show and open house in Tecumseh, Michigan, celebrates the company’s 30th anniversary.

In addition to being a custom car show offering awards in such categories as street rods, classic/restored, trucks, lead sled, muscle cars and hot rods, the show will feature many other aftermarket companies and their products.

“Some of the best names in our industry are based right here in Michigan, and we’ll have them at our shop, ready to talk to you,” ididit said in its news release.
