Al (acolds), don't get me wrong, please. It has nothing to do with you nor with your log in behavior. It -> isn't the first time. I'm pretty sure that Kev will fix it, as he did before.

Amen! Definitely don't need to start seeing double on the nice prewar Packards. The real forced double lights set in pods on the "bug eyed" 58s are quite enough.

At least the Studebaker - Packard designers didn't have an exclusive on that front. While they didn't have pods, some of the forced dual light designs on nice sedate narrow fender RollsRoyces of the early 60s are just as jarring.

John, Howard, both were Soviet Packard doubles, a 110 and a 101, which urgently need to visit an oculist.

Gerd, Most of our moms probably tried to teach us that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I guess someone thought that was a brilliant design but this beholder apparently did not get the message on that particular implementation of beauty.

Maybe someone in charge -- even in the Soviet Union -- just had to jump in during the four light era or thought more light was needed and anything would work. Could even see the extra lights being different colors to announce someone really important was inside and coming down the road. Whatever the reason, IMO the way the added lights were fitted on the fender is jarring and leaves a lot to be desired. The original singles look so much better both in the original Packard design and in the Soviet copies..
