Mike Herman is one of those 40-something’s that is keeping the traditional hot rod flame burning bright. Owner and operator of H & H Flatheads in La Crescenta, CA – Herman is the flathead V8 guru of the west, maybe the entire nation. He builds, assembles and tunes more flathead V8 motors than anyone we know or have even heard of.
What makes his process unique is that he precisely balances rotating assemblies for the Flathead engine. He’s a perfectionist and his engines have stood the test of time. We sent our agent Mike Harrington over to Herman’s place to get pictures and to tell is a little about the shop, its history, how Mike came to own the joint and what makes them special.
