Wheels up '71 Caprice!

 Permanent link

 Caprice71 It’s not often that you see a ’71 Caprice blast down the strip to the tune low 10’s at 130 mph, but this is the case in NMCA’s Nostalgia Muscle Car class. Andy Warren is the skipper of this yacht and MSD sends our congrats out for another win at Commerce last weekend. In fact, it was Andy’s third win in four final round appearances. Not a surprise as he’s the two time Champ in the class!

The Knieriem prepped 427 small block is fired with a complete MSD system including a 7AL-2, 8.5mm Wires, Pro-Billet Distributor and HVC Coil.

Joe PandoIn April 1981 MSD hired a local high school kid to help around the shop. Over the past three decades that kid has stuck with it and advanced to be the Technical Director for the whole company. This week Joe Pando celebrates his 30 year work anniversary. Pando has done everything from sweeping floors to advising the president of the company.

Over the past 41 years MSD Ignition has had a lot of employees. Some come and go, but the best seem to really stick around. The average employee at MSD, including those in the offices as well as in manufacturing, has been with the company nearly 13 years. We are proud to be an employer that people want to work for and that can retain employees so well! The perfect example is Joe Pando; thank you for all the years of great service Joe.
