So my 87 Brougham makes this scratchy kind of sqealing sound when i am in motion, but only when i am moving, some one said it is probably the spedometer cable......does this sound right?

Does the speedometer needle jump around? That's usually a sign it's bad.

Does sound right. Pull the cable out of the housing at the connection to the trans. and inspect it. If it looks OK, lubricate it and stick it back in.
