Default Gonna get myself in Trouble

On my way to Delaware today and I look down and realize I'm doing 90

I called my buddy who has the lumina LTZ with the 3800 and go...dude how do you not get speeding tickets in your car ??

I am so used to the Monte and this was my first long drive with this Bonne. This thing wasn't even breaking a sweat at 90.

I obviously slowed down (my insurance is high enough) but DANG

Maybe a radar detector is in order cause this car rides maybe a little too smooth.

Just had to confess my sins for the day
