Flash Dance: Digital Dashboards of the 1980s

I recall shopping for a car in 1983 and seeing all the fancy dashboard lights -even some that were projected on the windshield! All I could think of was "Look at all the things that can stop working." But they sure were pretty!

In our humble opinion, one of the most coolest things that occurred in the 1980s was the rise of digital dashboards in cars, watches, hi-fi equipment (and just about everywhere), with their "early video game"-like riot of LCDs and LEDs and warm glow of CRT displays... When applied to car dashboards, all this could turn some otherwise cheap plastic car interiors into futuristic spaceship control panels.

Dark Roasted Blend takes you back to those days with an assortment of fancy dashboards of the 1980s, plus KITT (the ultimate dashboard, from the TV show Knight Rider), and even customized dashboard lights you can have today. Link
