You didn't give enough details on that, sounds to me you are saying in 5th gear on the open [email protected], which would've been 122mph.:eek:

Soop, Soop, here in Denmark, Euro, we have to waith another at least 3 months*) to give our Alfa Classico the Italian tune-up.
*) In actual fact it's more like mid to ultimo April before roads are safe for salt. Denmark is one of the countries with most parsings of 0 C in winther, which meens that roads are salted almost every might.

Hi Wille - I'm in Nordsjaelland just across Oresund, but our roads are mostly wet until mid/ultimo April. I have to confort my self with the 156 until then.

Yesterday it was 70's & overcast. It was so humid that the steam that billowed from the exhaust made me think I had a blown head gasket. My heart sank. However, after about 10 min it cleared up, Whew. The other cars did the same thing. The humidity was bad enough that I went for a drive in the Sarurn wagon 'cuz it has A/C and had to use the wipers on occasion. When it's like this I long for Southern Cal or Las Vegas.

Sunny and almost 80 here in SC.

DD77 didn't ask for enough info to make his 122 mph statement. Was there a headwind or a tailwind. Was the road flat, uphill or downhill? But most importantly, what kind of wheel covers were on the car?
