351 Screamer: Lidio Iacobelli is ready to make headlines again
Ok, admit it. At one time or another you've sat around dreaming about the ultimate Mustang you'd like to build. Heads, cam, blower, and nitrous included, of course. What seperates Mustang owners; however, is that some make their dream come true. Some owners have connections, some get sponsers, and most just spend lots of money to make it happen. Then once in a while, someone comes along that not only makes their dream happen, but helps to make ours happen as well. Lidio Iacobelli...

William Mathis, the recently appointed V.P. of Manufacturing and Engineering at Steeda Autosports is charged with increasing the output, quality and efficiency of operations at Steeda Manufacturing. To improve any one item on this list would be notable. To tackle all three at once might give lesser men the fits. Mathis, however, is able to draw upon over a half a century of knowledge and experience - the perfect preparation for the challenge.

Life on an east Texas dairy farm provided William with a tireless work ethic and a belief in education at an early age. With several degrees to his credit - one of them in Mechanical Engineering, and business experience that includes operating his own companies and work as a CPA, Mathis knows how to make things work, both from the mechanical and the business perspectives. And while his performance legacy includes chapters on motorcycles, boats and airplanes, his history with Mustang racing stretches back to the seventies. Then, it was B Production Shelbys and Boss 302 Mustangs with Bruce Chrisman and Vernon Bynum; more recently Mathis gave the performance edge to Bob Hahn, the 2002 SCCA American Sedan Champion.

“We''re up to our eyeballs designing parts for the ''05 Mustang" Mathis said in a recent interview. "As a part of the SEMA Technology Transfer Program, we get drawings and specifications directly from Ford, so we are working now designing parts for the S197 platform. We should have quality performance parts, engineered to Ford specifications and guaranteed to fit for the ''05 no later than August. Steeda already has a strong reputation for performance and quality. It''s my goal to enhance that reputation, nurture it and help it grow.”

The soft-spoken Texan says that with a “Buck Stops Here” tone, and history shows us that Mathis is a man of his word. Well suited to the challenges he faces in his new position, William makes a welcome addition to the Steeda Team.
