As for the memory lane ramblings I still have a set of Cibie Bi-odes and a few pairs of Super Oscars in the loft, one I'll get around to hauling them out, they should be like candles nowadays!
Europeans have no idea how bad the sealed beam headlights, that were mandated in the USA until 1984, actually were. They were atrocious and downright dangerous when driving at any speed approaching the 55 MPH national speed limit. Although the average speed in rallies was always below the posted limit, all that changed when you missed a clue and were attempting to make-up time. So improved lighting was a must on night rallies.
Continuing down memory lane: I remember some of the fantastic looking headlights that were available on cars not legally sold in the US. The French cars were particularly outrageous.
