The LS swap has been played out quite heavily – from the 240SX to some of the baddest muscle cars on the planet. So it only stands to reason that with the popularity of the LS, our friends at V8Rings.com would join in on the LS-swap craze and come up with some cool bling to show off your LSX love while walking the show circuit.
To add to its lineup of V8 Engine Rings – the kind you wear on your finger – Bob Sirilla of V8Rings has brought us a couple of LS-design rings for the gearhead who has (almost) everything LS. Patterned after the popular Corvette 5.7L LS1 with the coils covered or exposed, these LS engine rings are a great gift idea for that LS/Corvette fanatic that needs to be different.
Each ring is first created with a mold that captures nearly every tiny detail of the LS1 and brings it back to life in sterling silver with brass or silver coils/coil covers. Each ring is a snag-free design that is available in both mens and womens sizing, with a total of four LS1 rings to choose from, with possibly more designs along the way if the response is positive.
We discussed the process with Bob a couple of years ago when we found his unique rings online. Despite there being a couple of other pieces of jewelry with this theme, we found that V8Rings.com brings out so much detail that these rings are the hands-down favorite for showing off at cruise nights and car shows.
You’ll likely find that the crowd that gathers around will be wanting to take a closer look, rather than blowing it off as a ‘cheap’ gimmick. Other rings in the collection range from small-blocks to big-blocks, with everything from throttle body to port injection, and single carburetor to quad two-barrels – even blowers.
We’ve been showing off our LS1 rings at local events and club meetings and the one thing that we have been asked quite often is, “which one can I have?” Well, when we get our grubby hands on something this cool, we’re not going to relinquish it so easily. So if you’re wanting to get your hands on an LS-style V8 Ring, you’re just going to have to head over to the v8Rings’ website and place an order.
This is actual jewelry, and as such, you won’t find plastic pieces that break off or a lack of detail, so expect each ring to set you back about $330. That’s less than a set of headers for your LS1, and you can actually show these off at parties. For other styles and designs that might suit the other gearheads in your life, check out V8Rings.com and let our friend Bob know we sent you. And don’t forget about Father’s Day, this just might be that one gift you couldn’t find anywhere else.
