Swap SS Emblem for Gauge?

Has anyone else looked at the SS emblem on their 1965 center console and thought, 'why isn't there a gauge there?' Wondering if that was the original intent as an upgrade option from the factory. Has anyone ever seen one there, whether factory or not? I'm thinking I'd like to put my temp gauge there.

Clock is closer, emblem is farther underneath the dash. Maybe a trans temp gauge location? It would need to be something that you didn't look at often...

One of the most useful gauges you can put in a car is a vacuum guage. If the car doesn't already have one this would be my choice. Click on some of the scenerios in green at the bottom of this page to see what you can learn about how the engine is running and how to maximize economy.

If 65 SS's didn't have a factory tach, they were equipted with a factory vacuum gauge to fill the Tach hole in the dash.
