It's always interesting to me when I see an old headlight looking bright and rather new compared to the place where it was installed.

@Wim van der Meij: Re: "Glass does not rust." Plus, as long as the car was drive-able, it has to pass inspection, thus replacement headlights, as necessary. So the headlight might be a couple of decades newer than the fender.
