It may only be 7 people, and the google-bot 900 times; but hey, who cares. :)
In celebration, one of my favourite 80's design standards: The pop-up headlight.
It may have been around since the 50's in one way or another, but it really came on strong in the 80's.
Although it was still around in the 90's, it was well and truly gone by early this century. It'l probably never come back for pedestrian-safety reasons, but we can always look back at the 1980's and laugh at the ridiculousness of it: Its a bloody light mounted to a motorized panel! Aerodynamic when closed, horrific when up...
..popups.. i <3 you.
