Re: [DML] top speed

Mike, I knew someone would have the old Road and track magazine, I stand  
corrected on the speed of the Delorean, how ever I do not agree with all the  
emails on here about the speed of cars of the 50's ,60's and 70's. I was raised  
in the south and still live here, California has it custom cars,but the south  
had and has always had fast cars. In the late 50's we would take the stock 
Chevy  283 and bore it to 301 drop in a full lift cam, solid lifters, 3 two 
barrel  carbs, a 1/2 gas line, 5 speed tranny and a tall rear end and we could 
smoke 140  or 150 with no sweat. Heck at one point the Alabama State Police had 
to get  special make Javalins (amc) with souped up 429's just to have a 
sporting chance  with the teens of that era. Nascar began on the back woods of the 
south and some  of the fastest wheels in the world still exist here, don't turn 
up your nose at  the Ford Falcon next to you, he may have a small jet engine 
in it, just  looking for some fancy set of imported wheels to out run. I am now 
64 and  will settle or a lousy 110 if this is all my Delorean will do. Heck I 
can  live with 80 mph.
