They both have the same name and are made by the same manufacturer. I'd not have either, because they'll both go up in flames if I go no near them.

That thing above the wheel makes it look like there is HAL aboard too.

My only thought on seeing those dashboards was all the electronics that could go wrong. The Karin appears to have a genuine CRT at the heart of the dash.

That would have been great in direct sunlight - totally unreadable!!!!

And you'd need to wait for it to warm up.

And provide several Kv of EHT to it. 15 or 20Kv behind the dash in a Citroen running along Citroen wiring fills me with horror :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not quite Steve,

If I had posted up the full image, a google image search would have gone straight to the answer :) It's got to be a little bit of a challenge to be interesting although I fear an appropriate afficionardo stumbling upon my little poser will just get it straight away!

You have identified the vehicle in your double guess, but which bit and exactly what is it for the full pint!
