Headlight from an old Volkswagon Beetle.  I love the “eye lid”.

It appears the old cars had a pension for having head lamps made with a protective hood.

    1. I did not realize the old ones had that lid. I knew the newer ones did and of course in Florida we have that exterminator service that has the mouse tail and eye lashes on a couple of beetles that are driven around in our area. I was never comfortable in the old ones – my knees hit the dash.

    1. These cars did not have labels on them and I am not so well versed on models so unless the owner was talking or the car had something on it to tell me, I could not tell you what year or make. The last car was a Ford, but again, I do not know what year. I included it because both had “lids”.

    1. George – Please do it anyway. I want to see your photos. We can’t stop pursuing our ideas because someone else took a photo similar. Everyone sees it from a different perspective. I would like to see more examples of different things. Like someone took a photo of car tail lights moving – is actually a good thing for everyone to at least try.

  1. punch buggy blue, no punch backs! oh my goodness this brings back such fun memories. I didn’t have an old beetle, everyone and their brother did so I rode in tons of them. But when the new convertibles first came out I ran out and got an orange one. I had no idea what I was in store for. I was not on the road more than 5 minutes when a couple in a shiney new Mercedes SUV pulled up next to me and put down their window to tell me that my car was the cutest little thing they had ever seen. This was just typical, almost everyday someone came up to me to tell me about the VW they had, kids would yell “Punch Buggy” at me. People would tell me they saw me all over the place. You’d think there wasn’t another orange convertible beetle on the road.

    1. How sweet. I did not own one and I only rode in one – but it was not a convertible nor a beetle but more like a van but it was a car, I think it was a squareback. Really not a cute car. Glad you enjoyed yours.
