No it's not okay to make fun.

But somewhere along the way someone told them "When you dress, you only have to please yourself. Dress up for YOU!"

When I see stupid hot rods I think:

"Yes that's a car."

"No it's not okay to make fun."

"Somebody must have told this guy-'Who cares what other people think. When you build a hotrod, you only have to please yourself. Build the car for you.' "

You guys know I'm just playin right?
you saw my girlfriend! ...jack
BTW, i like the headlites

If I were going to buy new head lights I'd spring for the Guide copies with the marker/directionals on top. My $.02

I have a set on my 41 and really like them. They are brighter than my old sealed beams and I like how they look. Very functional as headlights if thats what you want headlights for.

Thank you, sir. I'm absolutely certain that anyone who ever asked for an opinion here about a part, an accessory, or a build, already knew that he could built the car the way he wanted when he asked the question. Nevertheless, someone will post the obvious. So stop.

I say who gives a rat's ass. Who gives a rat's ass if their ugly and not traditional. Who gives a shit if they are beautiful and should be held in some sort of acclaim. Who gives a shit in general? Shouldn't we all just be out in the shed working on our cars?

Bought a set of the amber turn signal versions, and really like the concept. I like not having to add a protrusion off my buckets or somewhere else to accommodate turn signals, and they look way cooler when they blink than those turn signal bulbs stuck into the headlight bucket that causes the whole lens to blink ('35 ford). I really dig 'em. The mirrored portions of the cup look way better in person than they do in that photo... far less "odd" looking.

HOWEVER... I was incredibly disappointed with the quality. They are extremely "cheap", despite the not-so-cheap price, and I suspect won't last long under heavy use. They are all plastic, and don't even feel like "good plastic"... very easily scratched. Plus, the inside bracing and the attachment of the lens to the cup is really poor. Out of the two I got, one I had to completely take apart and "repair" right out of the box because half of it had fallen apart. Sad really, because I've found no other options I liked as much as these. I would even pay more if I had to, to get something of excellent quality and a similar design, but there's nothing out there I could find - only one other style of headlight with similar features that the turn signal portion didn't look as good on.

As such, I suspect I won't be using them, and will figure out some other method of having subtle, unobtrusive turn signals.

Agreed. This morning I was out in the barn and cut out a grille shell insert and installed it.... Changing the headlights and directional comes next... Thinking of Speedway 911-01001 items. Anyone used them?

Building a car is like sex. You really only need to please yourself. Everyone else is just residual pleasure..

With an attitude like that, you're going to disappoint a lot of women! LOL

If the O.P. buys those lights, the Goodguise will accept him.
