While it may be against the rules, what's really to stop a 
manufacturer from just issuing a VIN plate to a pilot car? Since it 
really is up to the manufacturer to destroy a pilot car, it's really 
more of an "honor system" kinda thing. Nevermind any "foolproof" 
system to prevent this from happening being in place. There just 
isn't a system at all as I understand it.

Otherwise, is this an actual law from the DOT/NHTA/EPA That these 
vehicles MUST be destroyed, or is it just a mutal agreement that 
selling them to consumers is frowned upon?

Besides, perhaps this was a great way for the company to reward it's 
executives without having to deplete their inventory that was to fill 
the high backorder of cars at the time?

Does anyone know how to get the speedometer needle off correctly?

bought a broken speedometer with a good trip reset to make one good 
speedometer.

For some reason the pictures of the close up don't look good at all, but here 
is the general idea.   It looks much better in person.   Instead of silver 
ink, I used aluminum foil behind the transparency.   It looks close to original 
but different enough to stand out.   I put it farther back because I think it 
looks better there and it doesn't hurt my mirror viewing.   


Thanks again for all of your help,
Patrick
