    Default Dashboard Decoration

    If you could put one item on the dash as a decoration, what would it be?

    I think I would get either a golden bobblehead tiger, or a Taco Bell bobblehead dog.

    We have the G-Tech mounted on the dash. That thing is awesome! (Got Mr. K's signature on the outside of the glove-box....in red!)

    Right now, I have a quarter from 1978 my mom found the day I picked up my car. I GOOPed it to the dash and had good luck since.

    I bet there's somebody with a little Jesus figure or other thing.

    But get serious.... I like the "Mr. K's signature" thing. You vcould easily make a casting, if you had Mr. K's signature. Gold plate it even! Vinyl even for the fender or rear window!

    Anybody got a pic of Mr. K's signature?

    Do you have those available in plastic relief, gold plated for the dash? I don't really care for the "Datsun" or even "Paninfarina".

    I have Mr K's autograph on my 260 owner's manual, (as do many of us).
    I could scan & post it or email it if you're serious about this..

    The only thing I can think of better for my dash than just having Mr. K's signature, would be Mr. Matsuo's signature along with Mr. K's. One would be good, both would be perfect.

    Sorry, bud. Open containers aren't allowed in cars. Drinking and driving isn't allowed, either.

    The only thing on my dash is a radar detector!!! Actually it's not on the dash but stuck on the windshield above the dash. Does that come close to counting? Ok, there is some occasional dust on my dash. But, I know what I'd really like sitting on my dash!!! But I can't mention it here. And besides, I don't think she would fit.

    Wouldn't she be more handy sitting somewhere else?

    Well Carl,

    I couldn't agree more. Isn't it interesting how the Z car and sex evoke similar emotions?

    First you said you had both signaturees, and then you posted two attachments, so I figured those were them. The perspectives made them look different.
    the sun visor one was better, but it won't be easy to isolate it.

    I never indicated that I "had" both sigs (I don't)................I just posted the attachments.

    They are different in that one has Japanese charecters and was acquired by standing inline for 90 minutes.

    The other was published in a book and was probably signed in a less hurried fashion, also image is oriented sideways in the attach.
