veglia vs jaeger gauges
Can anyone clear this up for me. Their is a seller on ebay with gauges from a mk1 1750. He says that the Mk1 1750 Gtv had Jaeger Gauges and that mk2s had veglia ones. Does anyone know what the deal was with gauges? Did the mk1's have different gauges to mk2's ? Or was it like the carbs, you either got webbers, dellortos or Solex, simply the luck of the draw. My mk2 has jaeger gauges and I cannot see any reason as to why they all would have been replaced as the car is pretty much untouched. Moreover, I have only ever seen jaeger gauges on two 1750's, my Mk2 and a very good South African mk1 in london that I looked at last year. I have looked at dozens of 1750's in the Uk and Australia and have never noticed a clear deliniation in gauge brands between the version. In my mind it was all very random.
Anyone care to express an opinion or show me the light.

I may only own two ALFAs now, but the handle stays as I am always chasing another one.
