I, like Jim Bauder live in a Phoenix suburb.  I have a pusher 
electric fan (like the one sold by Moss) mounted above the crank hole 
controlled by an adjustable thermostat.  And the engine mounted fan 
that pulls air from below the crank hole.  Here in PHX I recommend 

I have also added an air dam (copied from Geo Hahn) to help force 
more air through the lower half of the radiator when the car is 
moving.  (I would be happy to send you picture.)  It is mounted to 
the bottom radiator guard so you don't see it unless you are looking 
for it.
