Default Tired of your Miata not having a clock?

NEW MEGAN RACING CLOCK GAUGE 52MM : eBay Motors (item 400106724318 end time Apr-01-10 18:26:40 PDT)

lol, 52mm clocks for your pleasure. I might get one of these, and I noticed a lot of complaining about the lack of a clock so I thought I'd post it up here for anyone who wants one.

Not for $80. My cell phone works just fine, or the big bank clock if I happen to be driving by one. It is annoying not having one though.

Wait what the Miata doesn't have a clock? I'm pretty sure my radio shows the time.

Whoa wait up. The analog clock is not JDM, shame on Megan racing.

Not having a center console opens up a lot of creative places to put your cell phone. Mine sits in the crack between the passenger seat bolster and the trans tunnel, held in place by the seat belt buckle. I can glance right over and see it no problem.

"What time is it?"







































"Time to get a watch."

Me! Why would I wear an ugly wrist accessory that is simply a redundant time teller to my cell phone in my pocket which is almost always with me? I've always been weird about things on my wrists and fingers. Maybe I'll go ultra redneck and get a marriage tattoo one day!

There are plenty of times that I'm not allowed to have a phone on me (those are called "weekdays", lol) so I invested in a nice watch.

Clock gauge would be a good way to fill a hole leftover in an a-pillar mount or something.

I have a 6 gauge console in my double-din opening from Cspense.. Still void of gauges.

Woke up one morning a few years ago to find my drivers door standing side open in my driveway. Center console and glove box contents were removed nad on the floor and seat. Nothing missing. Think the neighbor might've spooked them so they neglected to steal my laptop, ipod, and stereo. Decided right then to remove everything of value from the car and now I never lock it. Disabled the trunk release and installed a remote solenoid for my keyfob to open.

6 clocks would fill that space nicely. You could set them all to different timezones, lol.
