      I would call that a Radiaometer/Radiator Cap, but I don't think it matters, it's a Radiator Cap! If it was a lady or bird, it would be a Cormerant or something like that, still a radiator cap to me!

        I thought the brand name was "Motor Minder".

          If I remember right, there was more than one manufacturer or product name for this. A friend of mine has a "MotorMinder" (I think it was that one anyways...)

          Like here is a Motormeter, and really similer to what my friend has.

          So, I think it just depends on what style it is. http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedi...-old-auto-part

          For that Studebaker one, I'm going to guess MotorMinder, or Moto Meter, since it has so many similarities to my friends. If my friends had a Studebaker logo, I'd say they were one and the same just about!

            That thing looks like it has olives on it... I bet it is really rare.

              The little things on top of the meter are little wind cups, that spin in the wind, so I was thinking it has different name, I agree it's a rad cap. It's the only one I ever saw with the wind cups.
