Pop-up headlights were a big deal back in the day, here are 13 of the best pop-up headlight cars ever.

Even today, pop-up headlights are considered awesome in the car community, although we haven't seen them in modern cars for a long time, they were a big deal back in the day.

The whole purpose of having a car with pop up headlights was to help with aerodynamics with the car design and styling of the time, which was very popular in the 1980s and early 1990s. Unfortunately, due to legislation in countries like ther US, their cost and reliability, as well as new lighting technologies, the pop-up headlight died off. Eventually, it was the Corvette Stingray in 2004 that was the last production model to feature them.

It's highly unlike they will ever make a comeback, unfortunately, which is why we need to appreciate them for what they were.
