Duh....the first is a speedometer (and if you look close you will see the odometer reading where it says MILES at the bottom of the speedometer)

The second picture is just a blow up of the odometer from the first.

the second one sitting on top the dash is a Tach-o-graph, they put a paper disk inside it that is turned by a clock and a pen makes marks on it showing when you are moving, how fast and how long you are stopped, they do it with electronics now, old style tattle tale
