I like the notion it's an origin for his love of antiques, but I hadn't noticed the speedometer - intentional or coincidence? Will we ever know!!

There's a funny story (I think in The Making of Star Trek)about how Shatner, Nimoy, and De Kelly all bought new cars after the TOS first season. They parked them in a row in the lot and on like the first or second day that they all had them, Kelly accidently backed into Nimoy's car. Nimoy then came around riding his bicycle (as he usually did on the Paramount lot) and Kelly said "Len! I wrecked our cars!" and it was a scene with the two of them (in full costume) examining the damage in the parking lot.

I guess you had to be there.
