Bob and Matt visit the Concorso Italiano show at Laguna Seca Ranch. The video is available at www.sweetingmedia.com, and www.youtube.com/powerbrakeservice#p/u/12/D-WX99exkpQ.

There is everything Italian there; Ferrari, Maserati, old Fiat, Fiat 500’s, Alfa Romeo, Pininfarina bodied Cadillac, the rare Bizzarrini, Pantera, Lamborghini, Ferrari Daytona, Ferrari 308, Ferrari Dino, and even a Vector. There is also an appearance by Valentino Balboni, the famous Lamborghini test driver.

About Power Brake Service:
We build and Rebuild endless varieties of new and classic brakes for every type of vehicle and trailer. The company was started by George Sweeting in 1950 who worked for the railroads and Lockhead, it is now run by his son Bob Sweeting who learned about modifying cars while drag racing in the 60’s, and Bob’s son Matt Sweeting (who grew up in all of this) is taking over more and more responsibilities. We were a Warehouse Distributor for Bendix for 20 years until they sold they sold their Power Brake Division to Bosch, which is when we became a special modification contractor with Bosch for their power brakes – which come on most new American vehicles. Our ability to design brake systems, rather than just replace rotors and pads, has taken us to amazing places and we have worked on amazing projects. We have:
Vacuum Brake – Conversions, Upgrades, and Modifications
Wilwood and Brembo Disc Brake Kits
Stainless Braided Hoses
Classic Car / Muscle Car Stock Brake Restoration and Rebuilding (Corvette, Camaro, Chevelle, Mustang, Ford & GM Truck, Mopar, Rolls Royce)
Light Truck / Medium Truck Hydro-Boost Replacement Parts and Conversions
Medium Truck / Heavy Truck Hydro-Max, Air brake, and Air-hydraulic systems – and Hydro-Max Conversions for the obsolete Delco Hypower
Conversions for the obsolete Buick Grand National, T-bird SC, Land Rover, Jeep and all other electric brake booster / electric powermasters
Modified brakes for Altered Bed Fleet Vehicles
Modified sensitivity for the Handicaped
Disc/Drum and Disc/Disc Proportioning Valves
We have worked on everything from propane powered trams to roller coasters, cranes, parade floats, multi engine street rods, classic european cars, double decker buses, and a Freightliner racing truck. Our favorite is working on big engine muscle cars that make too little vacuum and need more stopping power.
