Accessory Lights, The Beginning
Before airbags, before seatbelts, before hazard and back-up lights, there were accessory lights.
"They Could Save Your Life!", the ad copy screamed, and it wasn't too hyperbolic. Turning your standard blinkers and headlights into four-way flashers was a nifty idea back in the day, and for the safety-minded, an off-the-shelf solution was just a few bucks away...
You could protect your car, your family and yourself, all for $6.95, and have a nice jeweled light added to your dash besides.
Later this week, we'll delve into the world of dash lights, from Gothard to Drake to Dialco, and also some cool antique styles as well. Stay tuned!
