I figure if we're draggin' Buffy we ain't got no business doin' more than about 62MPH anyway.

I think there was a conspiracy when the newer Ford instrument panels were designed. It's VERY difficult for the "nagivator" (that'd be me) to see the speed limit from the right seat.

In Calif, if you are towing, the limit is 55. I personally think anyone driving a Motorhome over 65 MPH are insane! No offense intended.

Might be in Idaho, but in NC the posted speed limit is the law, not a suggestion.

That's called "Parallax" - flight crews have to take its effect into account when reading instruments from other than their assigned seat - pilot reading co-pilot instruments and vice versa.

Same in Texas - the speeding tickets I have gotten don't say I was exceeding the "Suggested Posted Speed Limit" - they say the "Posted Speed Limit".

TOWTA's old junker has a digital which makes it a little difficult to convince her that she's mistaken due to the angle she is seeing the speed.

I take it that's when she's in the passenger seat criticizing you for driving too fast..

What year is your 350?

Mine is a 2000, and is limited to 93mph. That's only because that's the max speed rating of the load range E tires available when it was new.
