    i think maybe he meant 10 hours per leg of the journey??? that would make sense, if you held 70 mph, minus one or two gas fills and bathroom breaks &c.

    Yes, I've made a joke based on his post... I'm sure it was 10 hours each way, hence the " " face in my post.

    Whoa, 97 in a 65...what state was this in? The fine might be steep! Ouch.

    Sometimes it's so hard to resist going that fast. I haven't had a ticket in 15 years and since I got the EAT chip, I've been stopped twice. No ticket, just a friendly warning form the NJ State Police that clocked me doing 84 in a 55. I had just passed someone on a 2 lane highway out in the middle of nowhere, I was slowing down after executing the big pass. I probably hit 100mph briefly as I wound out 3rd gear to around 7000rpm. The car is so much fun to drive I just can't help it!!! First really nice day with all the windows and sunroof open, new Mobil1 oil, EAT chip making my right foot itch, CD player blasting and heading down the shore on a Friday night after workin' all week to spend the weekend with my honey at the beach house. Thank you Mr. State trooper for not ruining my night!

    Default I just got back from a trip also.

    Gainesville, Virginia to Akron Ohio and on to Saginaw Michigan. Car ran great also. 1400 total miles without a hitch. On my way back to Akron to drop off my sister, I averaged 23.5 mpg at 80 mph with an automatic. What great cars. They were built as the ultimate highway cruisers. I'm ready to go again.
