Guages

Anyone had any experience with aftermarket gauges? Specifically Dakota Digital?

I have no experience with Dakota Digital, but I can highly recommend Classic Instruments.

I just checked their site. It appears the only Pontiac they cover are the firebirds. I am actually looking at Dakota digitals replacement cluster for 64 - 67 GTO. has the speedo, tach, fuel, ammeter, temp. Fits into the stock bezel. Good looking but pricey. For that much money I want to make sure they are top quality. Thanks for the response.

Not sure what you're looking for, but Peter Serio (Precision Pontiac) does wonderful work:

I spoke with Peter. That's one of my options. My old stock speedo needs to be rebuilt, which he can do for about $100 -150. But I also have issues with all of the gauges not lighting very well at night ( They may be some cheapo aftermarket gauges). That would be about another $350 to get the correct ones. plus these Dakota digitals are really good looking and probably more accurate.

Peter is a good guy and extremely knowledgeable on these old gauges. I enjoyed talking to him.
