And now, a quick lesson in what anatomy can do for you...

I've gone 100 mph in my mom's '97 Sunfire SE sedan on the interstate once. Of course, that was a few years ago when I was young(er), stupid(er), and gas didn't cost an arm, a leg, and a few carpal bones.

exactly, one time I was going like 90 down this road, and all of a sudden there was this bend in the road, and I was like "OH SHIT!!!" and when I was going around the bend I could feel the tires leave the road.

Scary stuff

Fastest, about 180km. It was the Alaska highway. Had the poor truck maxed out and the only reason she went that fast was because I was going down a hill. Not too bad though, was a blast. The scariest was in my rents 93 suzuki sidekick. As you should know, very prone to tip. Well, I was heading home from work and I just wanted to get where I was going. Came around a corner that should be taken at 90km or less and I hit it at about 110km. Well I felt the two tire lift off the road and in my frenzie I happen to look around the corner. There coming right for me was a semi. I dont know how but I managed to steer around the corner on two wheels and miss the semi by inches. Scary stuff, never took that corner fast again.

the fastest i've ever been was around 125mph in a friend's 1990 e34 525i. otherwise, i've gone 120mph in a lexus rx300, and 118mph in my '02 protege5.

oh, and 95mph in a chrysler town&country. that was scary....

at a car show

i was at this car show and they had high performance vehicles and stuff... and this guy had a dodge viper that had close to 1800 HP or something and his licence plate on the back of the car said 255 MPH, well he was giving rides to people and me and my friend were lucky enought to get a ride...

all I can say is after we hit like 160 MPH, i was just holding on to the seat with both hands and consentrating on staying alive lol

it was fast, im not sure how fast he whent but im sure we hit 200 mph, it was insane...

and the fealing of going about 200 mph in a car, is insane....

lol

The GPS unit that my friend had said 136 in my SHO. He told me the speedo was at about 130. I have had the speedo past 140 once but I honestly dont know how fast that is but it is about 5 mph slow at 136 so maybe 150. But honestly just to be sure I will say 136

On analog speedo's there's usually a 10mph implication at every 100mph, so if you're doing say 100mph by the speedo, you're actually doing nearer 90mph and if you're doing 110mph on the speedo, you're actually going nearer 100mph, and if you're lucky enough to have one that reads to 200mph and you've reached this, you're more than likely gonna be travelling at about 180mph (or 220mph = 200mph etc etc untill 300mph....which aint possible at the moment lol). I think that's how it works, it might be 10mph(ish) regardless of how many 100's of mph over one hundred you're doing lol
