    I still have no 'enlightened' info in my head as to the use of singles. I just read through this again thinking I missed something, but other than the term "ditch light" which I wasn't hip to prior to the topic, sorry. Nuthin. I'd hate to find out it's just a recent hipster idea born of misguided research. The use of a single on Packard senior cars of the depression era was because the license plate was in the way of a pair mounted on the front spreader bar. Pairs were added to the bumper brackets for rigid mounted (non-pilot ray) types of accessory lighting. Here's a single Pilot Ray that steers with the wheels on a 34 Packard. Easy to see why 2 wasn't possible, even with the operating hardware out front. There's a lever and push rod affair under the driver's side fender that clamps to the Pitman arm.

    Does it mean something different depending on which side it's on?

    I think so. The 'biker code', (according to Fat Mike of the Gypsy Jokers, San Jose: "If ya got an ol' lady, you wear yer keys on the right. If yer 'available', wear 'em on the left.")
    Always the 'perpetrator', I then asked: "What if you're gay?" He gave me that sour look, right down his nose. Everybody else laughed, however nervously...

    Ear rings are like that. Left ear you're 'straight'. 'Been around the Horn', or some such shit.
    Right ear? Not 'straight'. There's another 'horn' you've probably been around.

    I recall cars being separated in two lines at a Goodguise show (Pleasanton) The single fog lights on the left got in one line, and the right side and twin lamp crowd got in the other.
    Couldn't tell if one persuasion was lighter in their sneakers, though...
