What car are we talking about?

I would have thought that at 50mph the fan would not have been necessary.
Definitely suspect the thermostat, or perhaps an airlock in the cooling system.

Temps in our region are expected to peak at 92 degreesF; previous record was 88. Many of us here are kind of heat wimps, and this is too hot too soon in the Summer.

It's a bad thing when a cold shower feels warm.
Make sure that if the fan does come on, it's turning the right way, if it's blowing out through the radiator, it will cause overheating while moving. Also, make sure that there is a t-stat in it, I like to run a 180º in mine, if there isn't the water travels through too fast to pick up enough heat, and too fast through the radiator to reject the heat it does pick up. This becomes an issue at speed more than sitting still.

I took my electric fan completely out a year or so ago, it's still out, and it makes no noticable difference unless the AC is on (I don't use the AC, so no problem). and this is Phoenix, 109 today.
If I remember correctly, when you turn the AC on, the electric fan circuit is completed, and it should start up.
