I once had a 1982 Subaru
with three headlights
; there was an extra one in the middle that could be turned on independently of the others. We called it a third nostril
. Driving in rural Bucks County, PA
at night, when a car came towards me I'd turn on the third nostril
in the hope of passing for a space alien
. They probably didn't think that, but I'd like to know what they did think. In the fullness of time
, that car laid down like a sick animal
and it just couldn't get up. It stopped eating. I held it and petted it while the vet gave it the injection, and then I buried it in a shoebox
in the back yard. Poor little Subaru
. . .
Actually, when its time came, I sold it to somebody for fifty bucks. The electrical system
was completely shot to hell
and the rear wheels couldn't be removed.
Anyhow, with a sufficiency of 1982 Subaru
s, an overall average of two headlight
s per car could be maintained indefinitely.
