Steering In The Right Direction

Flaming River stainless steel tilt-column

In old days, putting your steering gear could be hit and miss. A matter of grabbing what was available and trying to make it work together in a way that would keep you from getting wrapped around a tree. Today, steering solutions exist for any problem you can think of.

The first step insteering this roadster in the right direction is a Flaming River stainless steel tilt-column.
