Yeah, they had a little round light in the front fenders. Also the '68 Dart. They weren't there on the '67 models, so they were there because they had to be.

Less often than you have thats for sure. Btw aren't you forgetting the other half of this equasion?

Thank you Einstein for bequeathing us these penetrating insights - real Ph.D material

After establishing a 'failure to comply with bumper etiquette' I'm beginning to suspect these blackshirts will immediately contact their evil commissar at Central HQ (located in Coventry, England) and await further instructions from the dreaded Dr Bumper

Perchance any further line of questioning you've left out re JCP's bumpers? Colour? Shape? Texture? Orgone content?
This may be the booze talking, but this post rocks.

btw those little marker lights are the easiest way to pick a '67 Mustang from the otherwise almost identical '68


(awaits predicted intense interrogation on sidelights)

Ok Quiggs, lay off the remaining booze and stay the hell off the roads. We don't need any more people driving like dumbshits.

Correct, it was always an easy way to tell '67 and '68 Mustangs apart since they're nearly identical otherwise!

I remember seeing a Ford F-250 when I was about 7/8. It was huge. One of the neighbours parked it next to my Dad's old Fiesta and got a photo. It was also covered in sidemarkers- little candle-style lights standing vertical on the front wings, markers on the roof, and just some smattered down the side for the hell of it.

Sidenote: This is turning into the best thread yet- ownage, information and humour.

MOAR! MOAR! MOAR!

I am really wondering what your benchmarks for quality look like...

Volvo's seem to have side marker lights all down the side, well, older models at least. Such as the V40 for example.

They're permitted in Europe, just not a requirement.

Speaking of side markers, the not-for-export Saturn Aura/possibly a rebodied Opel something has them, even though it's not required.
