Comments like that confuse me a bit.  A stock 48hp non turbo 1.6 VANAGON
will make it up to 65 on the flat and weighs 2,000 lbs more than a caddy
with double the frontal area and wind resistance of a big brick.  My '86
non-turbo 1.6 jetta would go 85 on flat ground with pedal left over and
routine cruising speed was 75+ on the freeway with two adults, a child and
all the rest of the space in the car filled with stuff.
