The hood lights on cars I've seen don't light up much because they are weak. Anyway, our cars come with a flashlight, so we're supposed to use that.

Here's an idea: HID underhood light (or lights)! Guaranteed to give you more light than you could possibly need for anything. Might be a cool idea for show cars.
