Wow, this takes me back. Do they also still make Hakkapeliitta fog lamps and driving lamps?

Covers on twin driving lamps attached to a Mitsubishi bumper read Comet 500 Hella in Helvetica

(Hella, admittedly, fits on a lamp cover hella more conveniently than Hakkapeliitta would. And it’s a classic Helvetica usage. But are you supposed to stop your car in the pouring rain, walk out to the front bumper [at risk of being hit by another vehicle], and pull off the antimacassars just so you can switch the lights on?)
