and I noticed something damn cool. They had a 1932 Packard up for grabs, and it had 2 sets of headlights. One for straight-on vision, and another set that was linked to the steering linkages so the lights would turn with the wheels to sneak around curves.

This is just showing up today with Lexus I believe (or is it BMW) in their new models, though obviously it's a bit more advanced of a system.

Some of the old cars were so far ahead of their time. It just blows my mind how simple the designs were back then. Today everything is done with computers or electronics. Back then it was all mechanical. But it had the same function. Very cool. :bigthumbu
