The gauge cluster is an important part of any car. Not only do gauges communicate the vital signs of the car, their placement means the driver likely spends more time gazing over the gauge cluster than at the rest of the car.
If it is so important and something you will be looking at so often, picking a good looking design is critical. From engine turned metal of a 1940 Buick, to the futuristic digital designs of so many cars from the 1980s, every designer has placed unique flair in the information center of the automobile.
So sound off in the comments below. Is simple the best design (looking at you Ford Model A), or do you need custom programmable LCD panel (Dodge Demon, anyone?) to form the perfect gauge cluster. Tells us which is the best!
