In '75 , I hopped in my '66 GT350 "carryover" and drove from California to Kansas for a Shelby convention. I thought nothing about hours on end a 4,000+rpm on the highway going there. Drove it and raced it all weekend , then drove back to CA with a 5,000 rpm limit. All with the 3.89 gears. Would I do it now? Hell no! In your 20's , your judgement is not burdened by common sense or "what ifs". LOL
