As would some period-correct callout.
Replace the hood mount tach with a big ammeter. Set it up so that when the car isn't moving it's at zero.

As I said 20 or 30 pages ago, I dislike the hood tach. It will be removed and sold when I get to that part of the body work.

My wife and I have revised the proposed house plan to a smaller rancher but still keeping the two big garages. This is the sketch I gave to the builder to pass to the architect. I'm anxious to see the real plans as they develop!

That's a nice sketch, I like the absence of corridors.

Not to be picky, but why are there two bedroom two's? Is that just the way architectural plans are labelled?

A little odd to have the only entrance to the master suite from the rest of the house through the kitchen, though.

Copy-and-paste from a commercially available plan. My two offspring are competitive, so both bedrooms have to be exactly the same size... and they refuse to share a bathroom, too.

But one gets a jet tub and tiny closet while the other gets a regular bath and huge closet?
