Oh yes, we do miss the '80s and early '90s.
There was a time when pop-up headlights appeared on many cars, not just supercars. But it was the latter that made them sexy. In fact, pop-up headlights on any type of performance car were just damn cool. Unfortunately, they had their problems. Not to mention the fact they didn't help with aerodynamics, pop-up lights sometimes just stopped working outright. Sure, they could be fixed but this was never a cheap repair. But still, cars like the Ferrari F40, Lamborghini Countach, and the BMW M1 all had their headlights hidden during daylight.
This feature really gave cars an iconic look unique and added a dose of personality that's greatly missed today. Check out this pop-up headlight tribute from DtRockstar1 featuring plenty of our favorite analog supercars and sports cars from yesteryear. Hat tip to lightning_shred.
