Bingo. Top of 2nd gear is more than most speed limits here, and 3rd is going to jail speeds. I picked up an NA Miata recently, amazing fun out of an extremely slow car. Such a hoot to drive.

Always.

The peak of motoring is to understand that speed is not what thrills it's HOW a car gets to speed and how it deals with speed and changes of speed.
