    American Autowire introduces the Nostalgia Series kit. This exciting new kit is designed for the builder/owner who is assembling a retro-styled street rod such as a Highboy or any other open hood styled car where the engine compartment is exposed for all to see. The resurgence of these types of cars, along with the use of older power plants and speed equipment, makes this kit a must for any of these projects. This ALL NEW kit is based on our established Highway 15 Series Modular Panel System. As with any Highway Series Kit, new ignition, lighting, and dimmer switches are included. While the new Highway 15 Series Nostalgia Kit features all of the modern technology that you have grown to expect from any American Autowire product, it offers that “old time” nostalgia look of the “braid and lacquer” wire used in the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. The bright and vibrant colors and use of multi-colored cross tracers, along with a high gloss lacquered coating, will give your project a look that everyone else will envy.

    Despite the retro look and feel, the New Highway 15 Nostalgia kit offers the same durability and modern functions of our full system kits including: “Mega-Fuse” system protection; locking screw clamp technology for panel connections; 8 gauge alternator feed for superior charging capabilities; Hi Performance 12v ignition feed; circuit breaker protected H/L feed; complete turn signal, hazard flasher, and front and rear running lamp circuits; complete instrument cluster gauge disconnect system plus much more! Combine all these great features along with AAW’s full color, step-by-step installation instructions, and you have one of the best wiring systems on the market.
    This exciting new Highway 15 Nostalgia kit (part number 500944) retails for $795.00 and is available immediately.

    American Autowire, located in Bellmawr, NJ, manufactures wiring harnesses, accessories, and parts for GM restorations, modified originals, and custom/street rods.

    Airflow technology leader introduces a high performance GM LS engine block for radical street & all-out racing applications.

    GM LS engines have truly set a new standard for V8 performance and durability. However, there are limitations for the aftermarket shopper when it comes to finding a high performance replacement for the factory block. Aware of this dilemma, the research and development team at RHS® went to work designing and testing several different versions of GM LS engine blocks until they found the optimal solution for performance engine builders and racing enthusiasts. The LS Race Block is designed for added clearance and mass customization. Available in both standard (9.240”) and tall (9.750”) deck heights with an extra-thick deck surface (.750”), this RHS® block features a raised cam centerline and priority main oiling via an oil galley that is shifted outboard to allow rod clearance for a much larger stroke (4.600”) while also minimizing windage in the crankcase. Using computer-aided design, the cylinder walls are Siamese cast with press-in spun cast iron liners. Cylinder liners are available in both standard deck (5.67”/5.87” – same as the LS7) and tall deck (5.94”/6.38”) lengths. Also featured is a 6-bolt head design with a full water jacket around each cylinder (based on the LS7 design).

    For quality control assurance, RHS® performs a CT scan on each block (similar to a medical CAT scan) to maintain maximum casting precision and consistency. Combine all of these features with a superior finish quality, thanks to the RHS® patented Clean Cast Technology™, ultra-precise computer aided design and extra surface material to allow custom machining, and you’ve got a GM block that sets a new benchmark for LS horsepower, torque and durability.
