Re: [DML] Front Ride Height Intentions - Documented Proof

Reaiming did not meet the requirement - otherwise DeLorean would
have done that.  The headlights must be within a range of distances from 
the ground.  They can't be too high and they can't be too low.  The restrictions
were made to reduce the amount of glare produced at night.  Remember that 
this is before all of the slick molded and contoured projection lamp headlight 
enclosures became available.  There was very little control of the light beam 
from rectangular or round sealed beam lamps.  Reaiming upwards to give 
an adequate light pattern would have put too much of the beams right into the 
windshields of oncoming traffic.

There were exceptions for things like snowplows where the headlights have 
to clear the blade in the raised position.
