No sweep here.

The fastest Bonneville (at 202 mph) was green. Enough said.

Hey guys, lets just do a top end run and see who'* king, the greens or the reds?

Who'* gonna represent the reds?

Btw, my gauges do the full swing also, and Jseabert'* SSE also, so 93 did this too for sure.

I hope my Black won't scare the reds and the greens too much as I go flying by. That new exhaust can be a little intimidating.

So it appears that only certain model lines, primarily the sse and ssei, had the pegging gauges?

I am guessing that if you have the lower level instrument cluster (the one that only goes up to 115 mph) you will not have the sweep thing. If PMD had put the boost guage in my SE, it would have had the higher end cluster out of an SSEi, and would have done the sweep. :(

Will, I think when you break the 150 mph barrier your car will turn RED, sort of like that Cadillac commercial where the CTS turns orange as it screams down the highway.

Been there. Done that.

Car stayed green. Maybe I didn't hold it long enough?

Me and 96AZSSEi will represent the reds good fellow.

AZ will challange your top end, but I'll challenge 1/4 mile!

Oh and just wait till tax money comes back this spring....black racing stripes will add 300hp to my car! Red + Black = Your new Demi-God!

MWUHAHAHAHA

Catch me if you can. Nobody is gonna touch my top end unless they're running a Jet chip

My 1/4 is faster than what I have posted, too, and I've got my Intake and Pulley on the way!

Bring it on, reddies!

If we didn't have this red vs. green crap, what would we laugh about?
