What about the ricks with the bule light...and the "thumchik, thumchik.." music to go with that?

One more reason I can think of is a cue from mother nature... i am in a silly mood today..please pardon me.
Glow worms glow in the dark, chameleon changes colours, birds display colourful feathers.. all in an effort to attract a mate..
Like wise, our young auto enthusiast brothers display this syndrome to attract females of the same kind..

hey shazikon!!! did you watch NATGEO all through the weekend? but that's probably the best perspective on neons.

Surely the vast majority of women have more sense than that?

Please! Tell me I'm right about this?

Please?

Although most people get underbody lights for show, there is a practical reason for some:

To light up the road/ground to show puddles, mud, and potholes, especially when the street lights are out or when in a rural area, or when it's been raining.

It also provides additional visibility for other drivers who otherwise may or may not be paying attention to what's on the road.

I have puddle lights in my quest, they come on when the car is in park and door opened. And they are not blue or green or red.

It helps your competitor identify you at night. Its like not making yourself lost in the crowd in his eyes, it gives a quick idea of how much he has to cover to make up. Its pure street racing pshycho.

Anyway, can anyone tell me why are nightclubs/pubs not given the obvious choice of interior illumination (like in an office or a restaurant)?

About women, one would be surprised at the number of them who would beleive that the Neons help produce 30 more bhp. No Headers, no tailers and no Dyno!

That would probably be about the same as the number of men that think their spoiler does the same?!?!?

Underbody neons look good on cars which have wide body kits else they look stupid on stock cars...

Wide-body kits, Ummm... yes....

Seriously, a light that comes on when I open the car door and illuminates what I'm about to step in --- that would be superb!
