Need more pop up lights in your life?

I'm a little surprised at the sheer variety of designs out there. I've also always wondered why Lotus, given their obsession with lowering weight, would use something so complex - and I assume heavier - than standard light design.

Anyway, I miss these on new cars.

Yeah, the video seemed a little heavy on the Italian exotics, and a little light on the Japanese stuff (and the cheaper stuff, in total). Only one Miata - and a rough looking one at that.

Me too!

I feel they made "regular" cars such as the 240sx and ford probe look like sports cars :D

They had their time and place, but their day is done, IMO.
