Nothing speaks of technological advancement like modern lights on classic cars. When we say modern, we mean cutting edge modern. As in modern LED lights. United Pacific makes a wide range of LED headlights that turn night into day with incredible energy efficiency.
Watch any old movie from the Fifties or prior, and you will eventually see a car with dim, yellow headlights at night on a dark twisty road. Inevitably the car will drive off the road and into a ravine. It’s a good bet the car drove into the ditch because the lighting was so poor and the driver couldn’t see well.
Maybe we jumped to a not-so far-fetched conclusion in that scenario, but you get the point. Classic cars had crappy lighting from the factory. Today, technology is advancing in the world of lighting are we seeing more cars equipped with LED headlights and taillights. The difference between regular incandescent bulbs and LED lights is amazing.
The Benefits Of LED Lights
Take any beloved and popular project car of today, from the Chevy C10 truck to a ’32 Ford coupe, classic Mustang, or Camaro, and United Pacific can add modern lighting technology while keeping the classic look.
LED lights have a much longer lifespan than halogen or high-intensity discharge (HID) lights. While the LED lights can be a tad more expensive in some cases, their lifespan more than makes up for the cost. LED lights last approximately 15,000 hours compared to 1,000 hours for halogen bulbs. The cost of replacing a halogen bulb roughly fifteen more times than an LED bulb makes them an incredible value.
Unlike the HID headlights which can cause problems for oncoming drivers, LED lights offer illumination that is better than halogen without the blinding effects of HID bulbs. Many states require an HID conversion kit that ensures they have the correct angle of the headlight beam. This is not a requirement for LED headlights. However, it is important to check the local regulations that apply to your region.
There is only one drawback to LED lights. There are plenty of cheap LED headlight bulbs offered online. Almost every lighting professional will advise consumers to stay away from those cheap online LED bulbs without exception. They are most likely poor quality and probably fail to meet legal requirements for street use. Go with a name brand product like those offered by United Pacific.
