Believe it or not, it's time to think about the holidays, and for the first time ever COMP Cams has created a collectible metal sign to honor their 30th anniversary that would make a great gift. The 32x20-inch, high-quality, precision die-cut metal sign includes the COMP Cams 30th anniversary logo and features the classic camshaft blasting through the background design embossed into the surface. This full-color sign includes the words "EST. 1976," making it an instant collectible perfect for any garage or home wall placement, much to your wife's chagrin.
Also in celebration of COMP Cams' big three-O are three new T-shirt designs that feature classic COMP Cams logos. From the classic World War II-style "nose art" illustrations to the traditional COMP Cams "breakthrough" camshaft logo from the '70s, these unique T-shirts are the perfect way to show your allegiance to COMP Cams performance-or maybe you need something clean to wear at the dinner table. Either way, they are available in M-XXL and are guaranteed not to shrink. Get these and more from Comp Cams at www.compcams.com or call 800-999-0853.
So you've got a Mopar suspension in your vintage pickup that won't sit low unless you're on the bumpstops, right? You're not alone; this common problem is easily solved with Fatman Fabrications' new 2-inch dropped spindles for the Volare or Cordoba IFS setups. And don't worry, your Mopar disc brakes will bolt right back up, or you can go to the Wilwood caliper shown for a more trick look/grab under your billet wheels. Drop these on, crank up the torsion bars, and get back the ride and handling you were looking for in the first place! Call the Fatman directly at 704-545-0369, or surf them online at www.fatmanfab.com.
Been Burnt On Header Bolts?
Does it seem like your header bolts are always coming loose? The hardware heroes at Totally Stainless have now combined vibration-proof, heat-resistant, stainless wedge lock washers (enlarged in front of the bolts) with high-strength stainless ARP bolts to produce TOTAL-LOCs. These special two-piece 316 stainless wedge lock washers are installed on the ARP bolts before the threads are rolled so they won't fall off. TOTAL-LOCs are easy to install and are priced below many other locking header bolts. Call 800-767-4781 or go to www.totallystainless.net for more info.
