Won't Hit Your Knee At Three
Flaming River Industries continues to steer enthusiasts in the right direction with their new Classic Series line of tilt steering columns. Their Classic Series columns are completely made in the USA, featuring all-new components throughout, including the GM ignition switch and key assembly, which is at three o'clock just like an OEM column. The new Flaming River columns utilize stainless steel tubes and housings in paintable (mill finish) or polished finishes. The ignition plug assembly uses the standard GM design (all-mechanical and does not use a relay), accepting the OE-style plug on the wiring harness and are available in floor and column shift versions.

Keep Your Cool
Just because underhood space can be limited doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your engine's cooling abilities. Flex-a-lite's newest line of low-profile dual S-blade fan systems can provide the maximum cooling you need for a limited space. Each model comes in its own shroud and features dual 12 1/8-inch diameter fans featuring Flex-a-lite's strong and efficient S-blade design, which flows 2,500 cfm of air. And they're available in "push" or "pull" applications and as always, Flex-a-lite's products are made in the U.S. from the highest quality materials. For more information, contact Flex-a-lite by calling 800-851-1510, or visit them on the Web at www.flex-a-lite.com.
