Maybe not the traditional Popup lights.. but some form of trick lights would look cool on the Focus... Maybe like... a thin skin that opens like a set of doors.. or an eyelid.. whnen it turns on.. like a big evil mechanical eye... hehehe
I remember when I was a kid growing up in the 80's I thought pop-ups were the shiznit. My dad even had a company car for a couple of years that had them, it was a Buick Skyhawk. That was the Buick version of the Cavalier. And when a Buick had pop-ups, you knew it was a trend that was getting played out. But at the time I thought it was cool. [rolleyes]
they definatly would be "novel" but i wouldnt go for it. i had a friend growing up whos dad's car had pop up lights, one day the motor stopped working on one of the headlights, that made it kind of useless. i also think it would really mess with the aerodynamics of the car.
here's the thing. I figure, instead of having them lift from the back, you'd want them to flip from the sides. Whether outside or in is up to an engineer with the modivation to do this. The gain of such a mod would be just like painting your headlights the same color as your car. I'll see if I can do a photoshop of it on my car. I'll get back to you.
