We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works

I had thought all cars with turbo engines had tachs as standard, being a posh item. Or maybe it stopped working so somebody decided to put a clock in.

I remember seeing one of those very rare 1981 300TD turbo electric speedometers on eBay, damn I still kick myself for not getting it.

It may have to do with auto or manual trans...... and may also vary between the countries they were imported to....

The irony is that the turbo engines all came with autos, and yet my manual never had a tach

My 123.190 had a five-speed stick, no tach, so I fixed it (installed a tach).

Sorry, just saw this. I'm in PA now, grew up outside Conway. Most of my family lives along the coast between Little River and Beaufort.

My 85 300TDT is Euro, Auto, Turbo and has big clock no tach. It's also been verified by Vin and build sheet. Now I just have to get that big clock working again...
