Wired
New from Sacramento Vintage Ford is this Vintage Wiring Kit for hot rodders and restorers who are looking for a do-it-yourself wiring kit that has that old-school look. The kit includes just about everything needed to re-wire a hot rod, car, or truck and includes a '40s-style black fabric-covered wire loom with a double red tracer just like the original harnesses. Also included is cloth-covered wire in 10, 12, and 14 gauge for headlight, parking light, taillight, brakelight, turn signal and flasher, dash, gauges, one-wire alternator charging system, ignition, and horn. All wire terminals are vintage in appearance as well, and an easy-to-read instruction booklet is also included. The cloth wire looms and cloth-covered wire and terminals are also available separately. For more information, contact Sacramento Vintage Ford at (916) 853-2244 or www.vintageford.com.

Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be
New from O'Brien Truckers is this nostalgic disc brake kit, combining Wilwood disc brake stopping power with a drum brake appearance. It uses a traditional-looking backing plate that incorporates an attractive and fully functional cooling scoop with what appears to be a Buick-style finned brake drum. Hidden behind the backing plate is Wilwood's Dynalite Pro Series Hub Kit with front-mounted, billet four-piston calipers, pads, vented rotors, and a set of custom caliper brackets.

The perfect combination of traditional looks with modern stopping capability, it really is possible to have the best of both worlds. For more information, contact O'Brien Truckers at (508) 248-1555 or www.obrientruckers.com.
