So I have a question for the Datsun gods.
A little background. The year was 1989, and an 17-year-old rickjames8 picks up his first car ever, a 1980 Datsun 200SX for $700. I was cool and it was the fastest car I'd ever driven, but then again my only comparison was our 88 Plymouth Voyager.
I learned so many things on this car. I did bodywork and painted it white to resemble a Nissan 240RS. I learned to change fluids and all that fun stuff. I installed a TV and an Atari2600, which I believe makes it a contender for the first ever in-car gaming system. Yeah, I'm that guy: http://travelhead.com/cars/200sx/
. But a bit older now.
My question is this. I clearly remember a very cool warning display just to the right of the gauges. It was either an "edge lit display" or a "light pipe display" that had 5 screens, all in orange. One said "Oil", "Temp", "Batt" and so on, each with the corresponding icon. When I started the car it would run through all 5 screens and then remain off while driving. In all dash photos I've found on the internet, there is a circular clock in that location. In some diagrams, I see a digital clock in this location, but never this warning display.
Now, there is a lot of years between then and now, so am I just imagining this, or does it exist? I took a lot of photos of that car, but none include the dash.
