Must be a pilot. I don't think a Corvette has that many functions to monitor

You would burn up a tank of fuel starting and shutting down that thing. Glad I did not have to wire that thing behind the dash. WOW.

You'd need a co-pilot to run this thing.

That's one way of keeping up your scan if your a IFR rated plane driver.

That dash cluster gives new meaning to "distracted driving". Dennis

That's a lot of work to go thru and then leave a rats nest of wire hanging from the stereo

Oh, sure. Stuff like brake fluid temp, hydraulic pressure of brakes and power steering, nose-up/nose-down attitude on acceleration/braking, compass, altimeter, radar scrambler, relative charge of the extra Optima battery needed to run the panel, etc.

It gives meaning to the automotive term "cockpit". Looks to be hard on the driver's knees, though.

They forgot the all important 'yaw string' indicator...
Pop quiz....how many know what that is ???
F-14 pilots wouldn't launch without one...

HINT: Watch the "Top Gun" flight sequences that show the cockpit from the front and you'll see them in action!

I might know?
I was watching a show this past weekend about the worlds smallest planes.
Guy had a string tied to what appeared to be a short antenna on one of those chainsaw engine helicopters.

Good answer. We always joked on the flight line about the $.98 piece of clothesline needed to fly a $24M airplane...

He goes to all of that work and then mounts the radio underdash. Looks like a switch fetish to me. LOL

Perhaps the real blashpemy here is the matte black N36 telescopic steering column adjustment ring.
