Pop-up headlights are largely dead and gone from the automotive world. Aside from the odd supercar or maybe the Volvo EX90, headlights are pretty much a solid affair. This morning, the Bishop proposed the idea that there could be a thing as too many pop-up headlights. His example is the Cizeta-Moroder V16T, a supercar with two columns of pop-up headlights in addition to other lights. Some of you think the Bishop is wrong, and there should be even more pop-up headlights on this car. Be careful what you wish for!
Before I continue, you should check out the Volvo EX90’s lights. Sure, they aren’t pop-up lights in a traditional sense, but they’re quite elaborate!
Pupmeow planted this terrible idea in my head:
Why stop at 4? Why not cover the entire car in pop-up headlights?
Uncle Cholmondeley only made things worse:
A fifth pop-up, right in the middle!
As did StillNotATony:
Yo dawg!! I heard you like pop-up headlights, so we put pop-ups on yo pop-ups!
Now, don’t look too close at this image. I’m terrible at Photoshop, but I try to do things without the help of our excellent topshot guy, Pete. Just enjoy, don’t zoom in.
Finally, we have a heartwarming comment from Mr. Asa. Sometimes, reading about an old truck with a big engine causes memories to well up:
My first enlistment a good friend of mine bought one of these. Absolutely loved that truck.
He threw on longtube headers and Quick Time Performance electrically operated cutouts, then would only close the cutouts when he was going through a drive through or the gate to get on base (even then, not always.) He lowered it. He threw Impala SS wheels on it and the combo was just absolutely superb.
He was about to throw a supercharger on it but he was going too fast on an off ramp and slid into a curb, bending the frame.
He kept it for a while, turning over whether he should keep it or not, but he eventually sold it when he got out of the military. Instead he kept his Dodge turbo van. Lost contact with each other after he got out and he moved back up north.
I didn’t realize how many good memories and how many laughs I had with him in that truck.
Keith, if you’re reading this, hope you’re doing well.
Indeed, Keith, I hope you’re doing well. As for the rest of you, have a great weekend!
