I found this great 80s period time piece on Auctions.yahoo.co.jp but unfortunately the auction has already ended…

What is it? Well it is the digital dashboard of the Carina GT-R AA63 (and GT-TR TA63) but then with a quartz clock in it to hang on your wall! 😉

The thing is, of course, horrendous and so ugly I would not dare to put in anywhere on my wall. But it intrigues me why anyone would create such a thing in the first place and, of course, it should be preserved for future generations! 😛

The only thing that strikes me is why they put the quartz clock at the place of the speedo and not on the place of the quartz clock… It looks a bit double now… But who knows, perhaps it would have looked less like a clock then. 😉
