RaceGuage - Custom Car Dashboard

Here is a cool project for a custom car dashboard that was done back in 1999. The guys replaced the entire dashboard of a 1989 Chevrolet Celebrity and put in two backlit 240x128 graphic LCDs for speedometer, Odometer, temperature, fuel remaining, time from 0-60 MPH and even quarter mile time. The system used a 68HC11 microcontroller and the assembly is hosted on the site and free under the GNU GPL.

For all you analog people out there they also have info on the power circuits that saves the odometer and powers down the system.

Take a look and send in a link if you have a cool dashboard mod, or any thing else cool you want to see on Geeksinside.com
