Here in sunny SW Florida there are a lot of straight 45-50 mph roads. My model T is a 35-40 mph vehicle. I am looking for a 12 V bright white magnetic based strobe to place on the rear of my T. Any suggestions?

John,

I don't think you can legally display a white and/or strobe light on the rear of a motor vehicle operating on a roadway.

Whites to the rear is bad in all states I am aware of.

I bought two red bicycle flashing lights. Made a bracket using a 3/4" copper water pipe, with a long bolt up into the frame.

These any help?

Battery, though.

White is only legal on the rear here in Texas to illuminate the license plate. Transportation Code provides for strobes on front and rear placed as far apart as practical and on the same level. Rear to be red or amber or "a combination thereof."
I use 12 volt amber (see yellow) strobes purchased from a supplier of police, fire and EMS equipment.You can program the strobe pattern you like and they are considerably brighter than a simple battery strobe.
Just my 2.

Unless you want to cause an accident, rather than avoid one, do not use a bright white light on the back of your car.

Instead try this:

I've got this battery powered, amber LED. It can be on, off or flashing mode. I keep it under the seat, then put it on the back when needed. It's very bright and effective. I got it from either Northern Tools or Tractor Supply 5 or 6 years ago.ambr

While on the Glacier Park tour I noticed someone had flashing blue led's on the rear. don't know if legal in many states or not, but he really showed up from a long way back.
