Default Different Color Gauges

I heard that one of the three major American car companies was going to start putting in "special" gauges that the driver can change colors from green to blue to red, etc... Anyone else hear about this or seen some pics? I am still trying to find it on the net.

Now that you said Mustang, I think it was at the Detroit Auto show. Since they are unveiling their new Pony'* and that new Shelby that looked so sweet!

There is an aftermarket gauge cluster available for the Bonneville (only certain clusters, not including SSEi) that are selectable between blue and green.

I figured it was simply leds, but it is the fact that they actually did it. Took long enough for a company to do it.

The gauge I got now switches between blue and green. I will get some green pics up soon on my cardomain site. I like the way the blue'* look better though.
