Update 1/16/12: You can contact Rene at rkemmer @ knoware.nl if you are interested in a set.
1/13/12: I keep this site up for free for the most part. Some days I spend 20 minutes, some 2 hours, but I just do what they day dictates, because I enjoy it and have this vision of what this site would be if I kept it up for 20 years. Every once in a while I get a gift because of the site. Laurence gave me a VERY nice steering wheel for my Sprint -transforming how the feel of the car was transmitted through my hands, Bob gave me some very nice used all red tail light lenses, Joe a set of headlight rings and an air box and there are others. Today, all unexpected, Rene sent me this:
It’s actually kind of funny, I thought the orange post office ‘come get your package’ notice was for a box (or two) of Glas GT parts I was expecting from Germany, or my rebuilt Solex from George, or even possibly more baby stuff. I was not expecting this.
Maybe six months ago Rene sent me an email saying he appreciated what I did and as a thank you would help me out with some Marchal fog or spot lights since he reproduced them. This is what I saw when I opened the box. Holy Sh*t is what I thought.
Fitting that I share my house with this critter. Didn’t know Domino had been doing logo modelling in France on the side.
Check out the print quality and paper stock that these are printed on. The two little boxes are bulbs, one white and one yellow. Lower right hand corner is the bulb holder.
I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting the quality and attention to detail that is exhibited by these lamps! Marchal 660’s are serious items, normally reserved for stuff like Ferrari’s and Maserati’s -or a car like mine at the end of a worm-hole that started with the intention to do a restoration.
That is verrr cool. This thing is heavy, like it was meant for the space shuttle. The glass is pure art and the chrome backing is like a mirror.
Cool picture this. I’m wearing one of the new Giuliettas.com T-shirts. My pregnant wife is reclining behind me and the crazy ceiling in the living room of my new house is in evidence. What’s the Bob Dylan album cover this looks like? Bring it all back home? Chrome is seriously like a mirror.
I’m not sure how to mount them since my front bumper has perfect chrome and no holes or dents, but I will figure our a way -maybe a small crash bar/cradle sort of set up.
Rene’s company Eurignals reproduces Marchal spot and fog lights. I’m not sure how much they cost, or which models he reproduces, but I can put you in contact with him if you are interested in a pair.
THANK YOU Rene!!! I’m speechless.
These are not 660’s but you get the idea. I would put mine a little closer together in the middle. I guess I could mount my front license plate at the same time.
