Coming up on 110mph - not quite what it appears

while driving out of Chicago the pick-up's speedometer went on the blink. At first I didn't notice, but when a truck overtook me when I was apparently doing over 90 miles an hour my suspicions were confirmed. I called Tom and jokingly suggested we slow down, as the best I could tell we were travelling at over 140 mph - the speedo needle had by now gone right off the scale.

 

Apparently this is a known GMC fault, and at our first rest stop Tom managed to reset the speedo to 0mph and it worked perfectly for the rest of the trip.
