Saw these on ebay and thought they were kinda neat. Too bad the one wasn't fords instead of plymouths though.

Check out the box graphics. Sure shows the era it was sold in don't it?

Wonder how that darn thing knows what final ratio and tire size you have??? We all know that determines the speed and rpms your engine turns, for a given amount of flow of gas.

We all know how well the vacuum guages with anything other than a vacuum reading on them work... According to one of the old diagnostic ones we have lying around my engine shouldn't even be running.

it works off the speedo cable, and all the cars listed have a 100 mph speedo if Im not mistaken. So regardless of the final drive ratio, as long as the speedo is correct, the reading the meter gets will be correct.

I agree with your post in theory. However I have never seen a 32 or33 year old car with a totally accurate speedometer. There are too many varibles to consider, due to wear on the parts, and other factors.

I will probally bid on the item. I just like to have old gimmicks, for converstation pieces.
