Let The Light Shine

As a birthday gift, I received new,
OK my Mustang 5.0 received a new set of headlights!

I don't mind receiving car parts as gifts...
It's so much better than going to a spa
and/or getting a mani/pedi

very far since it was diffused by the fading, yellowing plastic.
Now, I can see much more, further ahead,
making night driving safer for me.
I must note that the gift was from my husband who
installed them pretty quickly - after cleaning up the wiring
(hey, it's an old car!)
And, he found them right here in Texas at
