Look at Matt'* signature. That was a weak drunken moment on my part around a campfire in July.

You guys should see the 87-91 Canadian cluster. With 100km/h being the going highway speed limit on most roads, esp. in Ontario, where many Bonnevilles go, you'd think GM would make the speedo something other than:

10-30-50-70-90-110...etc..



I guessed they learnt for 92-99

yeah, but most everybody does 75mph and the cops don't hassle you so long as you do it courteously.

changing the speed limit on the highways to 120KM/H is in the works here in Ontario because everyone does that speed hell you might even get yelled at by ppl if you dont
