Oh yes, I've lots more, just haven't gotten around to photographing and listing them lol I didn't know about the Lake Compounce swap, though; when is it, and is there a web site? I need to register, perhaps. Thanks!

i have a question, if your car only has 80 and i bought the speedo with the 85mph would it work normally and point accurately or it'd be slightly bit diffrent or something like that somewhat?

i'm interested in the gauges with the bright needles #3 do u still have them

GM merely shuffled the highlighting on the numbers; the speedo showing 60, 70, 80, etc. still has a mark (a short line) at 85 but not a number. They (all car manufacturers) did those sort of tricks from time to time to give the illusion they were "updating" the interior in some way, like they'd change the trim on the seats now and then but still provide basically the same seats for decades on end. The basic calibration remained in the speedo gear in the transmission which, as far as I know, was always something like 2000 rpm = 60 mph. So yes, you can swap speedos and as long as the internal magnetic "calibration" is good, they'll all show the same speed. Yes, I do still have have the #3 gauges and speedo.
