240Z: Niles Cigarette lighter with Thermometer

Btw: Niles is the company that made most of the electronic relays and switches in the 240Z and many other Datsuns / Nissans of that time. So while this item was never sold by Nissan, it somehow gives the whole thing a bit of a period correct OEM feel:

And to be honest, it’s so weird and odd, i just had to have it.
