What can I say...they're fun to collect.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

I find myself collecting the vintage stuff but I find myself also buying and using decently made modern stuff like EYE/Iwasaki and modern Sylvania lamps. I'd still light the vintage stuff from time to time, especially the ones that I got used instead of NOS.

Very nice! Not a full framer but still a quality lamp! I've got a clear Westinghouse LifeGuard from this era.

I have both of those too! Great lamps to collect.
(This may not be a full frame lamp, but it has frame supports at the socket end of the lamp, which is a Sylvania exclusive, at least from what I've seen.)
