I have no Idea why it was just a law this law was repealed in the 1990's and that's why all cars before 1990 had circular headlights.


Not quite. Rectangular headlights were first allowed in the U.S. market in 1975, but they had to be "sealed beam" units, which direct light beams with more intensity (and less ambient "spill") than the composite-type headlights used in other countries. Composite headlights were finally legalized for the U.S. market in 1987.

European automakers, for whatever reason, would just slap round sealed-beam headlights onto their U.S.-bound cars rather than attempt to use a similar-looking sealed-beam rectangular unit.
