To be honest I've wondered the same thing. The dash does have a little area
below the ash tray that looks like it might be the spot. The top also has
the "grill" for mounting a speaker inside.


BTW- had to take my car out for a littlhtrip today. First time in a
long time it's gone more than 2-3 miles at a shot. It was a 175 mile round
trip and the car did great. I figure I got something around 32 miles to the
gallon.

The only tough part was dealing with the other vehicles. In Montana we
don't have a posted speed limit and most people average 90 or so. It's
tough when they fly-by with me only doing 55-60.
