I sure wished I had one this past July on our way the NAMGAR's GT27. We 
were coming across the mountains on I-64 looking for some place to stop. 
It had been raining most of the day, and was getting sorta dark. I'd see 
cars in the MGA's rear view mirror coming up fast behind us, and at the 
last seconds, either jump on their brakes, or make a rapid lane change. 
They just couldn't see those two dim bulbs (the ones on the back, not the 
ones in the seats.)

One of the first things I did when I got to Charlottesville, was to buy 
some of Jeff Zorn's halogen bulbs for the back of the car.

We have a rear fog light on Deb's Audi, and I've followed it during a 
heavy rain. It makes a huge difference in how far back you can see the 
car, making for a safer following condition.
