I see your temp needle sits where mine has always done at 1 min past 12 o clock .
That has always annoyed me but I forgive the car for it
Congratulations on the 300k That makes you on your 13th lap of the Planet. Hope it is a lucky one

I think that is because of the angle of the photograph - it sits perfectly vertical from where I sit ...
