I had one in my '79 Camero many moons ago. I've seen the dash covers/mats around but I'm not sure if they are still "cool" like they were in the '80's. I only got one to cover that crack on my dash and to velcro the radar detector on it. I'm sure that the dash mat will give you some protection against the sun's rays but it all boils down to personal taste. Smooth dash or fuzzy dash. You might have to get with Starsky and Hutch on this issue.
