Default OT: Need disk brake pads

I have a 1970 chevy elcamino. I'm rebuilding my front end this week and My rotors are in need of resurfacing. I want (but not needed) new pads. Where can i get a great set of pads that will make this thing stop? I use the car as my daily driver around 30 miles a day stop and go traffic and High heat(las vegas). I don't want to get into the brake fade when I have to put the brakes to the test. Any ideas? don't care about the brake lifetime warrenty stuff. my GM dealer doesn't carry pads for my vehicle.
Thanks,
Rick

Don't know if they have anything to fit but N A P A sell a pad called ceramix (spelling) and they will do great and not wear out rotors
Or buy truckin mag. they have some advertisers that sell trick stuff

I also vote for Carbon Metallic/Ceramic mix pads. I stuck them on my Tahoe and they worked great. Much better than stock. Try NAPA.
