I think the top speed is somewhere around 80 mph...The best way to keep her from overheating would have to be a new radiator I believe :2cents:

That.... or maybe, just MAYBE not having the pedal to the floor for over half an hour. Just a suggestion though, not sure if it would do anything. :thumbs:

Dude just slap a couple Type R stickers on that baby and it'll do atleast 130 mph and fix your overheating problem.

Well you could always get a job and buy a better car. I would rather have a Yugo than a Chevette. Atleast with the Yugo you can stick a 1500cc motor out of a Fiat X1/9 in it and it'll get out of its own way.

A 1980 Chevette should be able to do 90 mph top speed. Don't know what to tell you though.

well, you could put a LS1 in a 'vette (che-vette) if you really wanted to, and it would MUCH cooler IMHO....

I knew a guy that jammed a 327 SBC in one, lol he couldn't keep tires on it long enough to get down the street.

Funny to hear about the Chevy Chevette again.. I'd almost forgotten about them.
My first car in high school was a Chevette. Poor thing of course had no power steering (driving it on a dirt road was like wrestling with Butterbean) and once I got a couple of buddies in it, the car couldn't get up the most gradual slope, but I have a lot of fond memories in that car.
Sorry, just my 2 cents.
