Now fitted with a 3.9.....is it wrong that I'm passing people doing 70+ in a 101?

Are those 101s really light? Most Rovers have the drag coefficient of a big shed. The 101 mimics one of those big ol' barns you guys have up there. I cannot imagine it doing 70+.

That rig must look so cool driving those back county roads up in north VT!

I think it could if it was a ragtop or or nothing at all on it. With a hardtop I think it would take a little longer to get up to speed but do 70 when it gets there.

Yeah, must be a rag top. The 101s look heavy but maybe those rag tops are under 4,000 lbs and that 3.9 should move it along at that weight.

They only weight 4,300lbs so very light.
