[DML] Re: Why I love the Delorean

Go over to dmcnews.com and look in the "other files" and you will find
an RPM to MPH conversion table for automatics and 5-speeds. Print the
one for your car out, laminate it, and leave it laying in your
binnicle. It may not be accurate but it will keep you out of trouble
until you can fix your angle drive. A lot cheaper than a GPS.
