In addition to grabbing early-1970s Impala emblems, seatbelt warning lights, and heartfelt but ineffective notes to tow-truck drivers during my junkyard travels, I like to collect interesting dash clocks from discarded vehicles. My hoard collection comes to well over 100 such chronometers, many of which have been documented in the Car Clock of the Week series. Since this week's Autoweek Talks theme is Time, it seemed a good time to put together a gallery of some of my favorites, pulled out of my carefully curated car-clock museum a bunch of cardboard boxes in my garage. Enjoy.
