Has anyone told you to sod off yet today? No? Consider that lack remedied.

I keep thinking of how no one ever seems to brag how great Floridian summers are with:

1. Hurricanes and/or tropical storms

2. Torrential rains, tornadoes, and high wind storms

3. Heat and humidity indexes at or over 100 nearly every day

4. Skeeters, fire ants, and other biting critters.

5. Old retirees that didn't go back to Michigan and Ontario for the summer and drive as slow as hell.

6. Flooding

7. Devil Rays baseball

No bragging needed sir. Your list of items doesn't happen that often I've yet to see a tornado and in 50 years I think I've experienced 5 hurricanes and 4 were in one year. No flooding yet. bugs are everywhere. And you aren't allowed to use the word "devil" apparently its anti christian. They are just the Rays now.

 

Now Dennis? How many years in your lifetime has it NOT snowed? and/or dropped below freezing? How many months do you NOT get to drive your baby?

 

Case Closed

LOL Frosty here is a pic of my clock.(next post,pics from my phone) I think its just a regular clock BUT i cant find pics of a 72 rally clock. 360Rocket if you see this,did you get a clock from a guy on PY? Did he rebuild yours or did you buy one done from him? The 69's say rally on them and have more numbers..

Joe - here is an old picture of my stock Rally gage cluster with the original stock steering wheel still in place. My clock does not have the word "Rally" but it does have the 24 hour labeling. I have the original MSRP sticker (plus the PHS documentation) for the car so I know the car was built with Rally gages and clock. So your clock appears correct to me.

Call YearOne....I don't recall what they charged me years ago and their catalog doesn't list a price today. They list a "tach/clock gauge repair/reface/conversion service."

https://www.yearone.com/Catalog/1964.72.gto/electrical/gauges_switches/gauge-repair_reface-services_conversion

The number is 1-800-YEARONE. 

I haven't checked to see if NPD, OPGI, AMES, or Performance Years offers a comparable service.
