Default Meter with different(ly) illuminated needle?

Anyone know where to get a meter or "gauge" that has an illuminated needle. I'm thinking of a car speedometer here-- something that has a certain background and a red or other color illuminated needle. This would be for a super cool VU meter.

something like this (but like a normal VU with a regular db scale):

From a car dealer or a scrap metal yard...from a car

Just make your own scale....a fairly easy task.

Everything is do the impossible just takes a little while longer.
