It's a large, GIF file if that helps -- probably takes a while to download.

My good friend had a Tempo for a long time (until the sub-frame buckled -- too many curbs -- a welder adopted it and it's still on the road: an '89 GL).

I noticed when I drove it that the engine sounded to be racing at highway speeds (it didn't have a tach, so ??? on the RPMs). It still managed respectable FE. Consistent problems included an alternator pulley that would sync out of alignment. Is this common? It seemed to be a robust little car. I won't mention that my Wife totalled one at 16 I won't elaborate on the details, but it was her Dad's car She has a great DR since then (after a Cavalier, then Teggy came along).

What is your RPM at 60? (long story short)?
