75...I have only driven on the highway a couple times so I don't get many chances to go fast.

90 ... limited by an overheating vulcan.

I'd rather have a rustbucket than a rice rocket!

103 in the Sable according to the tach.

I had the needle in the Econoline van pointing straight down once, we estimate that to be around 105.

The Willys topped out at 50…












…downhill.

Gone elsewhere in search of a pleasant Taurus/Sable forum run by people who actually care.
