Gauge recommendations

I'm looking to replace the gauges - speedo and quad on my '51 chev pickup. There are a number of options, TPI, Omega Custom, Dolphin, etc.

Is one any better than the other? or to put it another way, is there one (or more) to stay away from? All seem to be relatively close in price.

Thanks,

Brian

IMHO it's a crap shoot, they are all made overseas.

Thanks for the info....the GPS gauge sounds pretty neat, but probably a bit rich for me at this point. Good to know that most are offshore, though!

+1 on Classic Instruments

Vince may be right on the "made Overseas" comment, but if you look at Classic's website, it says:

"All product manufacturing is done in their Michigan plant for world wide markets."

These days you never know, but that is one reason I chose 'em-
