Over the Holidays I was helping my bro on his 68 Firebird and stayed later than expected. I was in my vette and have not driven her for any distance after dark in years!

I had swapped my headlights for LED but no real drive time since then after dark. Once on the freeway coming home it was like driving with lower fog lights only! Lit up the road nicely just in front of the car! High beams were great however folks in front of me might have disagreed so I kept her on low. I'll be re adjusting the low beams soon! LOL!

I did note none of my dash lights worked and had to replace a fuse there. I did order all new LED bulbs for the dash, console and gauge cluster. I look forward to a well lit dash soon!

I think my eyes are getting older! Night driving generally sucks! LOL!

I always had trouble driving my 68 at nite because the lights were mounted inside the grill. I think because the car was raced at one point. So yrs ago I installed HID's (4 high beams) that I can control the inside or outside separately or together. Looks sorta like a 747 landing & I can see fine Roll Eyes Don't use them much as I avoid driving this car at nite.
