Last month I drove back down from Connecticut to Key Largo - Perfect drive again. Replacement rear end is great and gives me more speed at lower RPM.

Here we (Nico the dog too) are waiting for the Cape May Ferry

I love that car. I love that you take it on trips.

Isn't the H4 a hi-low filament lamp? Yours has two separate bulbs in the outer light? Like the old Marchal Amplilux?

Yes, the H4 bulb is a high/low bulb and the is an additional H1 bulb in that outer headlight too. The smaller inner high beam is also a H1. When driving on a dark road it seems like daylight with the high-beams on! :p

As for Marchal Amplilux; interesting. I've never seen them.

Here are photos of mine:

That's really interesting, they're almost side by side.

The Amplilux is hard to find and highly sought after by vintage Ferrari and 911 guys. But I think they work in a similar way with two separate reflectors.

Wow, cool to see them together.

This conversation about mounting is also interesting and reminds me I put new Euro Hellas in a '73 Ford Capri (4 lights, H4/H1) in high school. They blew the headlight fuse every time I turned them on. I finally took them out again and electrical taped the mounts where they touched the body, and that solved it. I didn't understand at the time why they'd sell headlights like that.
