I happened to see one of the 17 Canadian '85s on my recent travels in 
from an elevated expressway doing 100kph, out of the corner of my eye I got
a pattern recognition match. We doubled back and checked it out, a nice
original example which ran in the 1 lap of America last year. And yes it did 
the speedo which went up to 240/260? km/hr.

Also stopped in at GTA which advertises in EC. Neat shop which had a good
looking wabbit wacer sitting out front.
