Years ago, pop up headlights were the standard for sports cars. The NSX, RX7, Corvette, various Ferraris and many others sported them. The thing is though, in the pursuit of speed and light weight, they serve little purpose.
Fixed headlights not only weigh less and reduce drag, they instantly change a cars image. For many years, high end JDM tuners have produced amazing looking cars using fixed headlights.
RX-7’s, NSX’s, 180sx’s and others are what come to mind when you think of these headlight conversions that originate in Japan.
But what about others? Like Vettes?
