i plan on upgrading the gauges with a cluster out of a 90's LeSabre some day. this gets you a 120mph speedo and tach along with water temp, oil pressure, and fuel level gauges. you can even put a real boost gauge in it that looks factory, and it takes only a little bit of modification to the bezel and making a VSS for the electronic speedo out of any 80's GM speedometer..

Or you can go this route:

1987 Regal Turbo T, bench seat, column shifter, manual windows, original 213k miles.
1968 Chevelle 300 Deluxe, 2-door sport coupe, V8 - one of 6803 produced, purchased all original with 307 and PG. Transformation completed: 454, 700R4, 12 bolt with 3:73s.
2018 Toyota Tundra, 5.7L - DD
2018 Infiniti QX60 - wife's ride, Florida cruiser
