Blanket Coverage

Thermo-Tec’s new fire suppression blanket is a must-have for any racer, in a shop, or anywhere a small fire can start quickly. The 40x60-inch blanket is bright orange for easy visibility and can smother a fire instantly. Made in the United States from 100 percent silica yarns especially designed for high temperature conditions, it resists most acids and alkalis, and will not rot or mildew.

Abrasive resistant and unaffected by bleaches or solvents, it has a handy Velcro storage and carrying strap and can also be used as a welding blanket. For more information, contact Thermo-Tec at (800) 274-8437 or at

Light On The Carbs

Holley’s 600-cfm carburetors have been staples in the hot rod world thanks to their universal calibration and vacuum secondaries, but they’ve been revamped. They now have an aluminum main body, bowls, throttle body, and metering block, giving a 40 percent weight saving and a polished finish that stays shiny for longer.

These bolt-on-and-go savings performance carburetors are available with manual or electric choke (PNs 0-1850SA and 0-80457SA, respectively). Both feature a single push-on style fuel inlet, multiple vacuum ports for accessories, and Ford A/T kickdown. The 700-R4 linkage and 4L60/80E TPS kits are available separately. For more information, visit Holley at

A/C Accents

Designed and stamped in-house at Holohan’s Hot Rod Shop, these new sheetmetal panels were designed to fit Vintage Air’s billet inline bulkheads, allowing them to be recessed into the firewall. Stamped out of 18-gauge cold rolled sheet steel, they have a generous flange on all edges to allow for easy placement on your firewall.

Also available are similar sheetmetal recess panels for other Vintage Air bulkheads. The panels are sold separately and bulkheads are also available. For more information, contact Holohan’s Hot Rods at (704) 450-0607 or at

NOS: New Old Shirts

Add to your wardrobe with one of each of these distressed-look T-shirts: Kansas City’s Arrow Speed Shop, the Lion’s Drag Strip logo, or Lion’s Last Drag Race. All are available in sizes medium to XXL. For more information, visit California Car Cover at

Two Types Of New

Rare Parts’ stash of NOS F-1 truck Pitman arms is dwindling, so they tooled up to reproduce them. The new versions are more precisely machined, with the surface around the splines being smooth, compared to the as-cast appearance of the original.

The NOS versions are still available, at a slightly higher price, owing to their originality. Rare Parts carries restoration and performance steering and suspension parts, and has the capability to manufacture one-off parts, if required. For more information, visit Rare Parts at

Go With The Flow

Designed for ’38-54 Chevrolet passenger cars and ’38-55 Series 1 Chevy and GMC trucks, this radiator overflow tank was a rare accessory, but is now being reproduced by The Filling Station. Not only is this a great looking accessory item, it is also practical.

The tank accepts overflow and steam from the radiator, condenses it back to water, and then returns it to the radiator. Supplied with instructions, hose, and mounting hardware, it also comes with two different decals for early or late versions. For more information, contact The Filling Station at (800) 841-6622 or at
