    Went back to the junkyard for more switches and doodads. Wandered around the GM and Mazda areas and came across a Reatta with VIC in tact!

    Someone bought the display that was in the white one. I guess the good weather today got people out to the yard.

    I'd love to get a VIC system working, put it in a wooden case, and use it as a desk clock.

    The Reatta one is a monochrome computer style monitor (though I did not know it had that trick twirly fan), while the unit in the Toro Trofeo was a genuine 5 inch COLOR Trinitron display. The only other consumer grade use of those 5 inch Trinitron screens were a pair of portable TVs... One in the 1980s, and one in 1996 for the 25th Anniversary of the Trinitron itself.

    Never seen it. Don't believe you.

    Such an awesome car and SO far ahead of it's time. That was the potential Olds had, squandered away.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    What's hilarious is the '92 STS we had didn't even have a legitimate FADE control, and this thing had a damn touch-screen GRID.

    thats the amazing thing with some cars, especially obscure under-appreciated ones.

    Its funny to see commercials boasting memory seats or automatic climate control.
