This classic car gift is inspired by the speedometer of an old racing car. Some of these veteran models could achieve a surprisingly high speed with the modest horsepower they produced. These old racing cars used to have hand-made dials and gauges that can be seen as artwork in its own right. Automotive art you can call it. This specific speedometer gauge is from the dashboard of a vintage race car. It has some rust at the edges which gives it even more character. Classic cars have instruments that have much more character than you will find on modern cars. Long live the analog gauge / dial / meter, whether it be measuring speed in mph (miles per hour) or km/h (kilometers per hour)!
