    I found these lights at a swapmeat and have no idea of what they came off of.

    I agree with the driving lights idea...but I think good quality accessory, not OEM, the mounts are too"universal" for OEM.........am sure they are not aircraft.......
     
  7. A hooded fog light ,,to cut glare. probably intended for big truck use.

    The lense markings look European, have you checked the hardware to see if it is Metric?

    I'd agree.The lenses appear to be 'E' marked for Europe.
    Look well made too.I'd guess at commercial or military vehicle.
    Is that a drain tube at the bottom of the housing?
    Any makers mark or pt. no.?

    Can you disassemble them to find markings inside?

    could they be runway lights? like mounted on an airplane wing?
     
  22. I'd agree with the Euro comments. How you got them at a place you went to swap meat, though, is a story best left untold I suspect.

    Something is odd/unusual about the wire gromet, maybe thay are outdoor emergency lights for a building. Is the wire solid or multi strand?

    Looks like they came from Buddy Holly's glasses
     
  25. The cool thing about being a hot rodder is that you don't have to know the origin of them in order to put them on your car. Probably most of us with '30s and older vehicles have some parts of unknown origin on our cars.

    Now that's funny right there, I don't care who ya are...


    Those look too small to be aircraft. I'm also intrigued by the style of the socket head bolts. Are they shaped funny or are they rusty? By the style of the 'weather proof' wire grommets and drains they could be old euro fire truck or marine. Then again the "E" could be a manufacturers logo instead of meaning euro, unless someone knows for a fact that it does. Add me to the stumped list...for now.

    Those are the lights they put on top of the drive-in theater screen's, that got lit up after the movie was over.
