It’s winter in Canada, and regularly well below 32F (0 Celsius). Currently -13C (-8.5F) in southern Ontario with windchill = - 25C (-16F) and the posted highway speed is 100km/hr, about 60mph. In dry conditions most people drive around 115km or about 73mph and many idiots drive faster.

Left coastal NC at 80 degrees last Jan 4. Drove to kali in sub 20 weather until I hit Nevada.
Picked up my retirement gift to myself, an immaculate 1979 K5 Blazer with 74000 original miles and ZERO rust.
Did 70+ mph out and back. No worries at all...
