    I know Carrello ... I almost had Carrello headlight rims on my bugeye 
when I sent my original rims out to the plater years ago.  The local shop 
does some real nice work, including the chrome on one of Ralph Lauren's 
concours Mercedes, but they sometimes aren't so good at keeping the parts 
orders together.  When I got my parts back, I was surprised to find some very 
large rims marked "Carrello" instead of my bugeye rims.
Couple of days later I got a frantic call from a Cape Cod restoration shop 
who thought I might have gotten their headlight rims by mistake.  Seems they 
were for a Maserati of which only seven cars were made!
    I put a set of Carrellos on my 1972 Fiat 124 Spider when I bought it new. 
 No way I was going to screw a set of Lucas lights on that.  They were high 
quality and bulbs were the standard H1, H2 type.

<<Anybody familiar with Carrello driving lamps? I picked up a pair in decent
shape at the swap meet a couple weeks ago and they actually work. They
needed the ususal cleanup, but I would like to know more about them and if
bulbs are still available should I need replacements at some point. These
are 5" rounds with clear lenses.
