Ive had a bid as there so rare there worth keeping, if anyone wants them for their car (as I will just keep them for posterity) let me know and you can have them for whatever I win them for If I win them.

With the exception of the GT, which had some rather fetching dials (which I believe are unique)
Dials in the GT are lifted from the mk2 CX IIRC

They do look very similar Kitch, funny that the Mk1 speedos dont suffer the same wobbles as Mk2s. I know there a different set up but I would imagine the speedo cable is routed in the same way?

Very silly doing 5000+ revs on a flat cold engine :wink: Also doing 110 mph on an empty tank is only going to get you achy feet :roll:

It wasn't on the public highway chaps :lol: For a start, I wouldn't drive at those speeds and take a pic if it was....it'd be evidence :lol:

In fact, I didn't take the pic.
