I got a laugh out of this and had to share.

I need that speedometer for my 72 Superbeetle. Except I need it to start at 35mph.

Speed does not kill!

I repeat. Speed does not kill.

It is the stop that does the damage!

Thanks Steve, i needed that laugh!
Looks exactly like what I would put on something of mine.
I do know if I get my zero turn mower on asphalt and go to fast, the front wheels get to doing the death wobble but it has no speedometer on it!

Around 1970 my '65 VW developed a "death wobble". The dealership added a steering damper. On a model T replacing the front end bushings will solve the problem.

The fix shown won't work on a stock model T for two reasons:

  1. no spedometer
  2. what stock model T goes 45-100 mph?
