Unsung

About this product:

In May 1963, Petersen Publishing Company’s Dick Day shot an entire roll of film as Dean Jeffries crawled around—and over—a horseless carriage, pinstriping brush in hand. As far as we know, none of these photos ever made it into any of Petersen’s magazines, but they captured the prolific Jeffries at a pivotal point in his career.

Top Three Reasons To Join MRC

Manufacturers Rep Council (MRC) - SEMA CouncilI feel strongly about being involved in the MRC for two main reasons. One being that it helps our fellow manufacturers’ representatives by being more proactive with changes in our industry. A second important benefit/reason for being involved is that I am personally using what I learn in my committee activities every day. It is helping me to be a better representative.

Top Three Reasons To Join MPMC

Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) - SEMA CouncilEven with a record number of exhibitors at the Media Trade Conference, MPMC continues to find new ways to deliver member value. Based upon the success of our seminar at the 2011 PRI show, we will host two events in 2012, with member-specific topics intended to help them make better business decisions. Our Hall of Fame ceremony at the PRI show continues to grow in stature, and our Business Guidelines Manual is now available online through the SEI. If you manufacture parts used in motorsports, it’s a great time to be involved in the Motorsports Parts Manufacturer’s Council.
