Actually, the picture was taken on Interstate 90 heading toward Albany with my foot planted to the floor. If I had to guess, I was at about 115. The needle went past 85mph. I was trying to bring it up to the 5mph, but I ran into some traffic and had to slow her down.

I think the factory started doing the 85 mph speedometers in 1980 because it was a governmental thing to try and get people to slow down. It didn't last long.

Not everyone can say they have a 2nd gen convertible that GM had a part in to make. 1 of 1 is very rare.
Read the original post. I'm not saying your car is not rare. However, read the first post
