New Old Stock Beehive Taillights by CON2R

 

OSZ_TL Taillight Image

 Beaverton, Oregon, USA:  Just cleared for release from inside the Old Skool Zone at CON2R are these absolutely gorgeous beehive taillights featuring original 2.75” diameter circa 1940 glass lenses.

 When we found them, the lenses were still wrapped in the same newspaper the factory used more than 70 years ago as packing material.  We decided the best way to show case the lenses was an elegant, machined and triple chrome plated steel housing without any visible fasteners.

 As you can see, the end result is an ultra-smooth, ultra-clean, ultra-slick design that gives the lenses a Frenched look without any complicated body work.

 The outside diameter of the housing is 4” and installation requires cutting a 3 3/8” hole, inserting the housing and clamping it from the backside.   They have an O-ring seal between the housing and the surface to which they mount and come with a socket to hold an 1157 style bulb or LED.

OSZ TL Taillight Installation Kit Image

 We’re making just 40 sets of these lights with a retail price of $269.95 per pair plus shipping.  To add a touch of authenticity, each set will come with a piece of the original newspaper.

 Complete information on this and other CON2R products can be found online at www.CON2R.com.

Redesigned Kia Sorento earns 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK award




ARLINGTON, Va. — A redesign of the Kia Sorento for the 2016 model year has taken the midsize SUV's small overlap front rating from poor to good, earning the vehicle a TOP SAFETY PICK award.

In the small overlap crash test, the driver space of the new Sorento was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of less than 4 inches at the footrest. The dummy's movement was well-controlled, and the front and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head away from any stiff structure or outside objects. Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

It's a marked improvement from the previous generation Sorento. In the test of the 2014 model, the driver's space was seriously compromised, with intrusion measuring as much as 11 inches at the parking brake pedal. The side curtain airbag didn't deploy, and the dummy's head barely contacted the front airbag before sliding off the left side, as the steering column moved to the right. Measures from the dummy indicated a high likelihood of injuries to the left lower leg and possible injuries to the left thigh and knee in a crash of this severity.

Introduced in 2012, the small overlap test replicates what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object such as a tree or a utility pole.

Like the previous generation, the 2016 Sorento earns good ratings in the Institute's moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. The across-the-board good ratings mean the Sorento qualifies for 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK. The award is given to vehicles that earn a good or acceptable small overlap rating and good ratings in the other four crashworthiness tests.

The Sorento is available with optional forward collision warning, earning it a basic rating for front crash prevention.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries and property damage — from crashes on the nation's roads.
