... a number of cars have turn signal lenses that appear red when the lights
are off, but when the turn signals are activated they flash yellow.  My '91
V8 works this way and I've seen other VWs and Audis that work this way as
well.  I seem to recall seeing a VW where the back-up lights appeared to be
yellow, but would light up in white.  I think I've seen the same sort of
trick on DB/Chrysler's :) as well ...
