Delta Tech Industries has expanded its line of 7-inch performance headlights to include four versions with built-in auxiliary lights. The headlights come equipped with a standard third beam 4-watt "city light" (a European version of parking lights). Other available options are amber directional signals, 20-watt Halogen daytime running lights, or LED "mood lights" for cruising at dusk. The entire 7-inch reflector magnifies the signal, which makes it a cool statement as well as a safety enhancement. These replacement headlights feature European precision lead-crystal prismatic lenses, a DOT certified, vacuum metalized reflector protected from moisture and the elements in a stamped steel housing, with rubber boot and powered with replaceable Xenon or Halogen H4 60/55-watt bulbs.

If you read this magazine back to front and enjoyed the images by Neal Reed in our "Big Photo Pages" this month, you may like to know he has just published a book containing more of his images. The 120-page tome is a collection of Reed's pictures, covering the English hot rod and rockabilly scenes, as well as a smattering of drag racing, mainly at events where all three scenes converge, and tattoo artists, burlesque, and the Wall of Death. The black and white images capture the atmosphere, energy, and personalities therein. For more information contact Neal Reed at www.retrophoto.co.uk or to purchase the book go to www.blurb.com.
