I don't like pop-up headlights (don't shoot)
we all must have one popular car feature we can't stand... Right?
Last week I made a catastrophic error. In a car based conversation with some friends I accidentally let slip that I don't much care for pop-up headlights. Cue the following reaction:
I realised at an early age that I was the only car enthusiast on the planet that didn't like them and passed through my teenage years and most of my early twenties without spilling the dirty little secret.
Well now the secret is out, so I best lay it all out on the table. They just look utterly ridiculous and ruin the sleek lines of 10's of glorious sports & supercars.
F40, Daytona, Countach, Testarossa, 928, 308, TR7, RX7, MR2 and MX-5. Upon raising their lights all of these cars go from looking like bad ass, beautiful beasts to gormless, brain damaged fish. Don't get me wrong, I would jump at the opportunity to drive/ own all of these cars. I just wouldn't drive them at night.
The rare Porsche 928 Turbo.
I am now going home to stock up on ammo and chicken soup so I can fend off the impending army of MX-5 fan boys that are on their way to murder me... On second thoughts there's a speed bump at the end of my road so I guess I'll be fine.
If you have any shameful admissions feel free to share them in the comments. This is a safe place.
