Vegas to Newport Beach via Acura in 2 hrs, 45 minutes baby!

Anyone making that drive is in the 100-110 category at some point.

 160 in a new trans am I had bought back in 97 in Houston on the tollway  after having a corvette exhaust put on it along with a super chip.

The striped lines that seperate lanes were no longer spaced out,  it was just one solid white line on either side of the car.

Got pulled over one time for 106 in a 50... I got a reckless driving ticket (6 points) and another ticket for going more than 25 mph over the speed limit (1 points for every 10 mph over the limit)

I had a court date I had to go to and when I went to court the judge asked what I was there for. I said a speeding ticket. He said the police officer must have lost it but he would write my name in the record as appearing for court in case something came up. It never came up!!!

 i had '89 chevy 4x4 that buried the speedo at 85, but if you kept going, once the black band of the speedo rolled back to 10 mph, it was doing 100. it topped out around 110-115.

also, the hot rod truck of me buddy's got even faster when he converted it into a drag-truck. he hit 150 in the quarter on the regular.

i guess i just grew up like that. when i was little, my folks had a '70-71 pontiac lemans wagon that he'd run past 100 all the time. when my brother got his first crotch rocket, he gave me a 130 mph ride when i was about 10-11. i just buried my helmet in his back and held on for dear life.

also, from 1988 until 2002, i had 18 speeding tickets, including 5 in 2002 alone. that sucked.

130 in an MX-6 V6, blowing past some punk in an old Audi. The wife was unhappy with me to say the least. So I never did that again.

The craziest speed though was 95 down a city street at 2 am racing a GTI off stop lights. Solid lines of parked cars on both sides (it was a two lane one way street). That was intense.

I once drove a jeep grand cherokee literally as fast as it would go (seems like 120) from ann arbor MI to lansing MI, google maps claims its an hour drive, and we made it in about half that. I also had cargo shorts on that were BULGING with mushrooms and 10 hits of E in the middle console.




I once maxed out my parents 99 corvette for 3-4 min. i am not sure what the top speed is like 200ish i would assume.

175 km/hr(108 mph) in a 98 Toyota Corolla. That's as fast as I could get the car to go.

I spent 1999, daily commuting  96 miles each way from Edmonton to Nova Chemical near Joffre, AB. In the day with regular highway traffic and driving through a busy city it would take me about 90 minutes. As soon as I hit the highway I would be going 130-140 km/hr till I hit the plant. At night I was a little bit more reckless. I would peel out of the plant and drive that Corolla like I had just stolen it. I went down rural highways, didn't stop at stop signs....I would be home in a little over an hour. About half the crew I was working with was doing the same thing. A co-worker drove a 89 mustang lx 5.0 that he had modified and drag raced on the weekends. He would warm up his car for 5 minutes and then pass us like we were stopped on the side of the road. He said he made it home in around 45 minutes.

One night I was feeling tired and was driving a little slower and hit a deer at about 70 mph. It peeled the roof of the corolla back like a sardine lid, obliterated the windshield. I pulled over and waited for the cops to come help me. I was covered in broken glass and fur. The deer took 20 minutes to die. Total damage was $8000 to the car.

That accident kinda took the fun out of speeding for me.

Nitecrawler - Hit above 120 in a geo storm. Had to see if it would actually go that fast.

Regularly drive in the 80's.



Hell yeah, I used to have a '92 Storm GSi, not the fastest car I've ever driven but easily the most fun.

A 99 Vette will do over 170, easy.

That's faster than me. I went about 160 in my 88 Mustang GT racing a turbo Supra that was supposed to be the baddest thing around from a 70 mph roll. My 140 mph speedometer was pinned against the tripometer reset button but we had a guy on the side of the road with a radar gun who got me 159 against the rev limiter in 4th gear with 2.73 gears. That Supra was about 20 carlengths back at 150 mph.

This was on I90 flying through downtown Chicago at 3AM.

Man I was a stupid fuckin kid.

i have driven a little over 90 several times, ridden in a 97 trans am w/ram air(sick ass ride) that my buddy got to 140 before we ran out of road. looking back, its scary as hell thinking we did that on a country road in the middle of the day.
