"Watch your speed, Jim!", Rose cautioned me... I still didn't have my license back, and this was a 70 zone.

You're right about low miles on her. If you squint just right, you can see that the odo says 48,3xx miles. I assume from what you said that they're original. 80 mph in a 70 zone 1,800 miles from home without a license ain't too smart, you know!

The driver of the Chrysler must have thought so too - He was passing us at the time! Also, notice the tachometer showing 3,700... Pretty short gears which, combined with the low-restriction intake and exhaust, made for a loud drive! Still, even with that gearing and the high-performance mods on the engine, we averaged nearly 25 mpg for the trip.
