    I have sent an E-mail to Autometer concerning Windshield Pillar Guage pods for 87-91 GM's. There have been many post on this site about these pods. I looked in the Specs page and saw that there were over 829,000 Blazers made from 73-91. This doesn't include trucks and Suburbans. I truly believe that the demand is out there for this product. This site alone has over 10,000 members. So, my idea is to get everyone to post who would b e interested in buying this guage pod. Then send the link to Autometer to show that there is a market for this application.

    Thanks,
    James

    Yes, I'm interested! I have previously gone through an extensive search for A-pillar gauge pods on the internet and at shops, only to come up empty. It would be great if Autometer would come up with something. Count me in!

    I'M IN! It would be nice to have multiple guage pods but if they would at least make a single / stackable pod I'd get enough to mount 3 guages.

    Count me in! I'd love to see a 2 or 3-gauge pod to hold Autometer's big (2 5/8in., I think) gauges.

    I definitely want someone to start making one! I put a plate over the radio hole and have a couple of my gauges there. pulled out the clock and put one there. I may actually want to quit listening to my engine and put in a new radio, but I need somewhere for my gauges to go.
