Re: Ludicrous Speed

This is dan's friend Dennis. Found a 1995 tc2000, 5.9, 545, 13 window, front engine flat nose. 3000. Rust free, 141,000. Driving from Tenn to Ohio, towing his suburban. Nice bus. Will try to get pics up soon. It does not like towing a suburban in the hills, down to 35mph on some of them. Engine seems governored low at 2300 max power, 2500 rpm and the fuel is off.

he's some in travel pics.

Re: Ludicrous Speed

22000RPM at 50MPH...WOW. That has REALLY deep gears...5.29's, maybe. That will be a SLOW runner on the highway.
