I remember one on a friend's 1968 Olds Cutlass Supreme. It was an
adjustable needle that you could rotate on the circular speedometer,
and if the speedometer needle got up to it, it would emit a buzzing
If you wanted to drive 90 mph or so you simply rotated the speed alert
needle all the way to 120 mph on the speedo.
We were in high school and he frequently was asked by his father why
the speed alert needle was set at such a high speed when he would
forget to set it back to 65 mph or so. Can you say, "busted?" :)
