A little help with my memory

A little help with my memory

Postby Jasen [OP] » October 29th 2009, 3:48am

I for the life of me can't remember what car it was.
Back in the late 80's, maybe early 90's GM had a car that had side by side hi/low beams that was really slim, probably 1/2 the height of a regular large sealed beam headlight, probably around 3"x7". It was some kind of sport sedan with a short grill.
