During my stint there I was driving a 1965 Catalina with a 389 auto. I had inherited it from the grandparents. At the time it had 37K actual miles. I recall burying the speedo on highway 98 a couple of times.
Good luck doing that on 98 now, all full of towns and tourists and lights. Now certain times on 85 from base to Crestview you could do that pretty easy, seeing as I did it once with my Monte Carlo. But I'd say I-10 is the best place to do that sort of thing.
