      New Triple Adjustable Coil-Overs have just been added to the RideTech line of shocks. According to the company, these coil-overs go beyond the typical double-adjustable units by utilizing a single rebound adjustment and a dual stage compression adjustment (high and low speed).

      They use a remote reservoir that is connected with a 30-inch braided line for easy installation in a variety of applications, according to the company. The high speed adjustment allows tuning for impact harshness such as potholes, speed bumps, off-road use or other hard road irregularities.

      In 1955 nothing on American roads was as regal in bearing as the new Cadillac convertible, a judgment that still holds true today in the likes of this absolutely dazzling Red beauty. Brilliantly restored in frame-off fashion in 2004, it features among its many attractions a new 2-tone Red and Cream leather interior by renowned Cadillac restoration specialists Jenkins Interiors. The quality of the work has resulted in Best of Show honors at both the 2005 Cadillac National in Des Moines and the AACA Grand National at Dover, and a class award at the equally prestigious Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance in 2006.
