2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Utah Is a Good Place for the Camaro
September 07, 2009
For a good chunk of my life, I never thought I would see a speed limit higher than 55mph. Then the feds wised up and let the states choose their own limits. Not surprisingly, many of the less-densely populated areas out west changed to 65, 70 and even 75mph limits.
As you can see, Utah has gone even higher, at least in this 30-mile or so "test section". It was a welcome sight as the Camaro cruises quite nicely at such speeds. There's very little wind noise for a car with such a distinctively-shaped exterior and even the tire noise from our car's optional 20s wasn't all that noticeable.
Don't have a bad word to say about the seats either. I made the roughly 10-hour trip from L.A. to Salt Lake City with barely a hint of soreness. Don't know how well they would fare on a tighter, twisty road, but for highway cruising they felt great.
