    So, I sell exhaust. Anyway, we had the nationwide Holley Rep in yesterday to talk to us about carrying Hooker and Flowtech headers. This is something we have been thinking about doing for a while because we do not have any leads on headers at the moment. So we are talking about them and everything and I tell him that I was thinking about getting a set for my blazer. We talked about the business some more, gave him a tour of the warehouse and they leave. Keep in mind we did not say yes to carrying their product. Anyway, I'm in the warehouse getting some parts for my wifes Rodeo when he calls me today, he says "what year was your blazer?" I said it's an 89, so he tells me I'm going to send you a set of headers for your truck. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I said are you serious? He tells me yep, we then discuss a couple more things and hang up. This was so cool! I'm use to us giving stuff to our customers, or at the most getting a free muffler from Flowmaster or something but nothing as expensive as a set of Hooker Headers, especially when we aren't in business yet. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Anyway, just thought I would share /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I'm not expecting them to be a set of expensive headers, I'll be happy with anything that is not a factory manifold. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    you cam find some pretty good scores on ebay when looking for headers... but nothing beats freeness.
