    In honor of my 63rd post, I thought it would be fun to see what other "Dashboard & Dial" combinations get posted. Here's my '63 Nova SS Convertible w/my 1969 Waltham V7736.

    I've just looked at a 63 Nova. Looks a hell of a car!

    Cheers, Chris

    I thought that was the 1966 Batmobile when I first saw the picture.

    My daily driver '07 Ford Police Interceptor and Speedy G. I purchased my '07 Ford Police Interceptor new from a Ford fleet dealership in 2007. I'm a former full time Cincinnati Police Officer who drove '99 - '03 Ford Police Interceptors on urban patrol from 2004 - 2006. During that time I gained a HUGE appreciation for the Ford Panther platform with the police package...so I purchased my own Ford Police Interceptor...and had it mildly modified with Ford Racing components to give it a little extra punch. :thumbsup:

    Hey Mad Dog, what's the horsepower on that beast? I know they are heavy cars, but they go like stink with the sirens flashing!

    @CdnWatchDoc...the HP isn't too hot...a factory '07 was rated at 250HP at the crank. I believe it stayed at 250HP through the last model year which was '11. I had a mild SCT tune done several years ago which only added about 15HP. Like you stated, they are heavy cars...over 4,000 lbs. My best 1/4 mile is about 15.5 sec but that's with the SCT tune, Ford Racing 3:73 gears and a Ford Racing Trak-Loc LSD...if I remember correctly, my best 1/4 mile time in stock config prior to mods (factory tune, 3:27 gears and an open differential) was about 15.9 sec. Just for the record, I'm a craptastic drag racer so somebody that knows what they're doing would probably have better numbers.

    Never accept less than 63bhp myself :whistling:. 1998 Mini Cooper with 1966 Omega 166.0002.
    mini1.jpg
    110 mph speedo but, the laws of aerodynamics take over at 80-85... Still the fastest thing through the bends with huge 175/50 R13 tyres on a car weighing 2/3 of a tonne. Greatly amusing when someone is 3ft from your back bumper on a straight and disappears backwards through the twisty bits. Dare not lift off as it takes an age to get back up to speed. Anyway, that's my excuse, officer ;)

    Here with winter tyres and raring to go.
