Custom Speed Parts Joins Mid America Motorworks

Feb 28, 2013

Effingham, Ill.-based Mid America Motorworks has announced a partnership with Custom Speed Parts (CSP) based in northern Germany.

The partnership is part of Mid America Motorworks’ strategy to provide Volkswagen enthusiasts with the benefits of a broader knowledge base and availability of a wider selection of products, said a company press release.

“We are thrilled to become an authorized distributor of Custom Speed Parts for VW enthusiasts,” said Mike Yager, Mid America Motorworks founder and chief cheerleader. “CSP products are without question the very best available today being used on high-performance street cars and track cars all over the world. When we toured the CSP premises, I was thrilled to see so many top-quality muffler systems, brake kits, shifters, carb linkages and high-performance engine parts.”

Yager, his wife Laurie, his son Blake and VW merchant Richard Davies visited CSP while on a business trip in Europe, where they saw CSP products up close.

Founded in 1987 by Peter Kohmann, CSP initially supplied northern Germany with replacement parts and accessories for classic VW models, and now offers high-quality products for the air-cooled VW enthusiast, the release noted.
