I am about to replace a head light in my 68. I have heard that putting Halogen head lamps in a old car can cause strain and possibly damage to the cars electrical system. Is this true? Does it matter if only one lamp is halogen? Anybody have any experence with this sort of thing?

It won't starin anything as long as you keep the wattage of the bulbs the same or near the same. Stock bulbs are 55/60 watts (low/high beam) which are the same as most Halogen bulbs. If you try to use 100/120 watt off road halogen bulbs into your fixtures your definately going to have a problem with the wires overheating and fuse blowing.
