If it hangs out there in normal, peaceful driving (under 3k rpm mostly)
then that is Fahrenheit.  If it runs around 100 then it's Celsius.

My 82 says 100 and 150 (and 70 I think), there is actually a hash mark
at what would be 160.  the 85 I think says 120 and 170 or something like
that.  I don;t drive it much but I know it's a little different.

I've never seen 150 on the coupe.  That's oil cooled turbo territory.
