The pop-up headlight: automotive eyes personified, endearing relic, or just two additional unnecessary points-of-failure? Whatever you think of them, they defined an automotive era. I happen to reap a weird, endless joy from that delay between when you flick the switch and when they actually pop-up or retract.
Which JNC had the coolest pop-up headlights?
What say you, dear reader? As always, the most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What’s the greatest Japanese nostalgic hatchback?”
We had strong contenders in this week’s comments, including Censport‘s reasoning for the Honda City hatchback, alvin‘s hilarious categorization of the Nissan Pulsar NX, but ultimately the award for most entertaining this week goes to Brett‘s tale of love lost:
Plymouth Arrow in Nth America; known as the Chrysler Lancer Hatchback in Australia.
I was 17 and drove a MK 1 Ford Escort (2 dr). My girlfriend, Helen, was stunning and suffered occasional lapses in judgement to maker her susceptible to my charms, which were always frustrated by the cramped and difficult interior of the Ford. I upgraded to the Lancer Hatchback, whereupon I had a much a better car, sufficient room to make Helen my own (although she dumped me not long afterwards) and I was left with a bunch of irreplaceable memories. In my fast approaching dotage, I love the Chrysler Lancer Hatchback ; Helen, not so much.
Omedetou, your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop!
