Our V8 Radio hosts Kevin Oeste and Mike Clarke always enjoy learning the stories of how performance parts companies came to be, and today, Kevin recalls his recent visit to Forgeline Motorsports.   Forgeline builds racing wheels that are also quite popular on the street in the Pro-Touring market, and Kevin shares the history asa well as the manufacturing techniques of this uniquely family-owned American racing wheel company.  Not only are the wheels made in America, with Ameican Haas machines, and held togeter with American ARP fasnteners, but the family has a deep history in racing as well, making Forgeline wheels the real-deal.  Oh yeah, and this is the longest trivia question segment to date, and Mike and Kevin apologize for that, but it just happened that way.
