Imagine getting in the drivers seat for the first time in drivers ed class and see a HUGE speedometer that takes 3/4 of the instrument cluster, and goes up to 140 MPH. If I remember correctly the speedometer in the caprice went to 150 or 155 MPH. I know of 2 people that have claimed to have burried the needle in the squadcar, and I believe them, but I feel that 150 is just too damn fast on public roads, even with lights and sirens going.
Ahhh....but imagine what it might be like to take that over to Germany and bust loose on the Autobahn...which I bet is better maintained than most roads here.
I remember back in '73, when Nevada had no speed limit, and we had just gotten our new Mazda RX2...

Taking a Caprice with the police package to Germany sounds fun. When are we leaving? Seriously though, that may be a good business. Bring about a dozen police equipped cars to Germany, and rent them to visiting Americans...
