Is there a cooler dash than a Series 3 Aston Martin Lagonda’s CRT unit from 1987?
Some cars are maybe a bit too ambitious for their own good.

One of the most infamous traits of the already pretty infamous Aston Martin Lagonda was its then-revolutionary CRT-based dashboard. Real computer raster displays on the dash, all the way back in 1986. These were incredibly unreliable, and were abandoned quickly, but I think they're fascinating.

Living in the Yuppie Lake View neighborhood, the most interesting car I'd usually see was a Canadian Civic, which made the sight of this bright white English saloon amidst the Jettas and Pilots so…
Perhaps it was the terrifying rust coupled with warrior heritage, but somehow an American Hell Project managed to beat an obscure Warsaw Pact convertible in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll. Actually, it was a near-tie, but still a triumph for the red-white-and-blue over the, uh, blue-white-and-red. Today we're…
