Oh yeah, sure enough.

One thing I just thought of now when I was looking at your picture---

I can pull it out of the Buick it is currently in, walk over to a 66 Pontiac and see if it will fit!

Thanks.

Boy you guys are so far past me in optionitus i feel relatively healthy by comparison.

Still there are a  couple of things I sure would to add to mine over and above what it came with.

Like:   Power locks (actually kind of handy with those wide cars.)

          The cool and understated gauges that Carl got his hands on

          Cruise control (good for those long cruises that I really want to do)

As it happens i have access to a 1975 chev two door with power locks and I may just try to adapt them.  They are electric I believe and they look pretty correct from what I can recall.

I can probably get my hands on a gauge setup for a 66 Carl if you want to pursue that conversion...

Actually, optionitus is somewhat like I imagine meth to be. It gives a feeling of euphoria. More addictive than meth though, no known cure/withdrawl method.

Grab that whole setup. You can use the whole thing with some minor modifications to the actuators and you can buy those repro switches shown above.

Do you have an idea what it would cost Ken? I don't want to sink a whole pile in to a dash that I will use for R & D and then never have a use for again.

 I know the feeling! Tonight I found a GM tissue dispenser. Perfect for a 66 GP!

 Hi Carls thanks for the advice on the power locks. i will acquire them.  As for the dash cluster, to be clear you are just looking for a normal 66 canadian  pontiac speedometer, is that right.

If so i have a couple on parts cars that I'd be happy to donate to the cause of R and D.  I would just have to take it out and ship it off.

Yes, that is exactly what I am looking for Ken. That would be perfect. I will gladly return it when I am done with it too. It will be undamaged. I just need to do a bunch of wire tracing and comparisons. I need it with the printed circuit on the back, as well as the connector that plugs in to the printed circuit and at least a couple of inches of wire still attached to the connector before you "snip".

Thanks.

 I think we just like cars that are easy to drive, like new cars, except that they are old.

When I was young  I drove a 53 chevy with armstrong steering whose only option was signal lights and a heater. (although it had a 350 with 4 speed)

I must say I did learn there are easier ways to make a cross country trip than with that old pumpkin.

I was thinking about this Ken and wanted to make sure you were clear on the fact that you will have to cut the connector off the dash harness to do this for me.

Not that it is completely junk/non reversible once you do that but if you ever wanted to use that dash harness it would be a bit of soldering and heat shrinking ( I think 7 wires) to make it whole again.

Hi Carl, I kinda figured that so I'm trying to figure which of the 4 parts 66's i have will never be used for the dash wiring  So far I think it'll be the Gimli Glider.
