About ididit Incorporated
ididit, inc. was founded in 1986 in Tecumseh, Michigan by Ken and Jane Callison. A few years earlier someone from Ken’s car club asked him if he could make a billet aluminum steering column. Ken, a machinist, set about taking an ugly, stock GM column and making it pretty. That one column was put in the car and taken to a local car show where it was seen by many other hot rodders. The rest, as they say, is history! ididit produces 1000′s of columns each year for the street rod, muscle car, classic truck and custom car market. Add to that the growing world of custom golf carts as well as a number of industrial accounts and what was once, a single custom steering column, is now a thriving company in SE Michigan with 45 employees and sales world-wide.
