Back in the day... my dad had a buddy who worked at the airport & he gave dad some of those Lucas plane landing lights that dad put on his front bumper. They were on a toggle switch so when someone wouldn't dim their lights... dad would switch on those lights. They were incredibly bright & the other person would be begging for him to turn them off. And of course... before long he turned them on a cop! Needless to say the cop wasn't pleased but it was a guy he went to high school with so he just got a big tongue lashing! Next thing I knew... those lights were gone!

Hehehe, I had a set of those several years ago! You could light candles on a birthday cake a 1/4 mile away they were so bright! Never flashed any cops, but burned several people’s retinas when they blinded me!

I don’t know now. NAPA used to carry them, don’t know if they still do or not. Mine were 7.25”, same as a headlight but tons brighter! They looked kinda like a King Bee headlight, except had a flat clear lens. They were hard to keep on the truck hanging under the bumper. Rocks took them out pretty quick.

If I was going to do something like that now I’d get one of those LED light bars, they’re probably almost as bright.
