Good - we need to keep the levity and positive waves going during these times.

Who likes fog lights and driving lights as much as me?
I like them like this - placed wide and just inside the turn signals and outside the bumper guards.

Classic Cibie's are the best, but hard to find now in smaller, non-rally sizes. Marchal the same - very expensive for the old ones - all the 911 guys scoop them up to put on their hoods. I think Hella makes a fairly small diameter modern fog, but I think you really need to be in the 4 to 5" diameter range, 6" max. The 7" ones are just too big. And the weird tiny blue LED ones are silly and not functional. Don't get me started on the Jeep guys with light bars across their windshields!

I'm thinking of classic British cars that needed extra light because LUCAS!

You used to see this around some - one yellow fog and one really bright spot light for different conditions.

Or this sweet couple, who I like to assume bought this 2002 new in England, modded it just to their liking for handling and touring, and have driven all over Europe together....

Made me laugh! I sure enjoy these old photos and ads.

This is making me want to get started on repair/restore of my 544.
