Certified Hurst Fanatic to Share Rare Artifacts

When looking back at the automotive hobby, one of the best advertisers in the game was Hurst Performance. With slick sales promotions, in particular those involving Linda Vaughn, Hurst became a juggernaut in the aftermarket performance industry. There are many Hurst aficionados, but perhaps none is as dedicated as Dennis Kirban. The owner of Kirban Performance, a PA-based company that specializes in Turbo Regal products, Kirban is an avid fan of everything Hurst. He grew up only minutes away from the original Hurst Performance main office, and his wife even worked for Hurst in the late '60s. Needless to say, Kirban has had a long connection to the legendary performance parts manufacturer.

For years, Kirban has been collecting memorabilia, oddball Hurst products and even some one-off prototype items. He will be attending the Hurst Nationals to offer seminars on Friday and Saturday, which will cover rare Hurst artwork, the design of the famous Hurst shift knob and several other topics. Even cooler, during one of this seminars Dennis will be giving away a Hemi connecting rod signed by none other than "Big Daddy" Don Garlits! Be sure to grab a seat early for Kirban's seminars, as they are always well-attended. Plus, you don't want to miss your chance to walk away with an awesome piece of drag racing memorabilia.
