I probably would not have added them but the blue dot inserts were there when I bought it. They were common on hotrods "back in the day" along with spotlights, de-chroming, fuzzy dice......

The originals were blue glass round like inserts that you cut a hole in a red tail light lens and inserted the blue into, makes the light look purple from a distance. They were (and are still) illegal to use as lighting equipment for road use, etc. Still popular for off road or arena shows. If you find them now, most likely they are plastic.

Yep.
Still, that's a nice trailer there, I'd chain it down at the motel.

Nice replica of a 55 Nomad missing the chrome on the tailgate but very my first car was a 58 Nomad that I bought for $25 wow now that really dates me lol They make those trailers in many car types I've seen a lot of them at shows and saw one as a Chevy SSR on the road and a corvette Real nice trailers.
