I thought I would share a photo suite of these neat old clip on markers that let you see if the headlamps are still lit from the comfort of your front seat. Pretty Slick, Huh! I'll let the pictures tell the story.

Those, are beautiful. I really like the stern warning though. Tomorrow may be too late!
I assume they are glass?

Just a little ahead of fiber tube optices. Would love to have a set of these. Very cool! Duane

Those are cool accessories. All T's should have had those. I can never tell if mine are on unless I'm driving in total darkness.

I know the feeling. I was coming home from a night Christmas parade once. My wife was following me in a modern car. Her lights were shining under the truck and lit my way very well. However, I turned off on a shortcut through the woods to get off of the highway sooner. She elected to take the normal route. This shortcut is a very narrow twisty winding dirt road. Probably very similar to roads of the day. At any rate, I didn't know just how dim my lights were until I got off on that path through the deep dark woods.

That is why I scoff at people who say chrome reflectors are not good enough. Not good as silver, I'm sure, but 10 times better than the old ones with more brass showing than silver that I had on it that night.

Sorry to highjack the thread. Those are really a nice accessory and useful too.

Fiber optics are said to have been first found in the space craft that crashed at Roswell in 1947.

This reminds me of a similar accessory, I put them on A's and similar They were a half moon shaped chrome plated doo dad, kind of like a hood, fit on top and had a glass marble in the middle, the lights would make the marble glow. Kind of neat back then, I can't post pictures or would show one.

Grady, I believe this is what your speaking about. I have a set in chrome somewhere too that has a full round red marble in each shield.

David, I am an avid Model T Accessory collector and have hundreds of accessories. I could most likely feature one a day here for the next few years.

Boy, I'd love to see a new accessory a day! It would go great with morning coffee.

I have had the Light markers on my center door for 20 yeasrs and really like them. I can tell at dusk if the lights are working or not.
I bought them a Hershey many years ago. They were in a box that had a picture of a very early car coming directly at you. Only one light was burning. In large letter it said under the car:
DON'T BE A DEAD EYE DICK. I saved the box but can not find it right now.

I think I may have bought one of them from you many years ago.
