No turn signal switch, not collapsible if that matters...

I've thought about those two things. I have a stock steering column that looks rough. I was wanting to do a Nascar type switch panel ignition so that would eliminate the key tumbler, so what could I do to get that racing look but streetable at the same time?

Go junk-yarding and find a manual floor-shift column from a pre-70 vehicle (if they still exist in scrapyards). Hmmm, prolly pretty hard to find even if they weren't all crushed. Those will not have a column switch. Or drop $250 on a cheapo column from Speedway Motors or use a race column and this clip-on turn signal switch.
