Yeah, if you aren't careful, the gauges start moving around by themselves.

I saw a small older model MB sedan in Albuquerque years ago. Probably completly stock except being up in the front with a straight axle. Crazy cool. If the front suspension is a separate unit that just unbolts like some BMWs it wouldn't be all that hard to do.

It's not a spare but a counter rotational, vision blocking, energy absorbing collision device.
