Thanks George, but I am not an expert, never well be 😊.  I am just an 'old car guy' who writes stories - a storyteller.

If you look at the photo that goes below my name  you will see my 1930 Packard with a pair of Saf-de-lights on it.

These were offered as an accessory  just the same as Trippe lights, pilot Ray lights etc. in the 1928- 1933 era. Some car manufacturers offered them in their accessory sales catalogs - that is what Packard did , at least in 1930.

Yes the lights are very heavy. When I fitted the ones to my car I did not wire them up for extra light but did as directional signals since most modern drivers have no clue what hand signals are and when I use hand signals they think I am waving hello to them and wave at me! Yes, really. That is ok if it is a good looking gal who is smiling at me..................... I then wave back.
