I like the looks of these for such purposes.  I have a hurricane style holder in the living room with one.

Ford, like a number of makers had to hold over their 1942 basic body styles til 1948.  They also went through a management crisis during that period.  Their next big styling change was in 1949 with the "shoebox" or "3 box" body style.

Here's a guy who'd think those flames would look just right on anything.

that's the one thing about LED's is the flicker effect.... it has to do with the phasing. it see it mainly in low voltage lighting and in Christmas lights.... that's why I don't like the LED Christmas lights, plus the "Cool White" and "neon Blue" colors are too hard on the eyes!

For our Christmas tree, we have soft white LEDs (no flicker). They look very nice, and feel 'fresher' yet don't don't feel very harsh. We've had the tree and same string of lights for about seven years now, and not one light has gone out!

I use the T5 type led strings in color, but for my outdoor decoration.  They seem to have richer color than the faceted or long shapes.
