    A paltry 126 MPH in a 1951 Cadillac. 'Like floating on air'.

    125 MPH in my 240Z out by the Hanford Nuclear reservation. Had to shut down early when I hit a tumble weed. What a mess.

    120 MPH indicated in my 308 on some VERY old XWX Michelins. Trying to chase down my buddy's TR. Yeah, GOOD LUCK!

    I haven't had the chance to try out my new Yokohamas yet.

    Had my '95 Arctic Cat 550 snowmobile maxxed out at 100 on a frozen reservoir in Vermont a few years back.

    130 roughly (speedo wasn't very accurate) in my 308.
    140 in my TR. Rob Ferretti can vouge for that, because he passed me doing probably 160 in his 'Vette!

    This thread says in a Ferrari, but I was impressed when I hit 148 on the speedo in my 91' 300 zx non turbo w/ only 222hp. Car had about 95k on the odo, took a while but she got there, handled pretty good too, not shaky at all. Not bad for $12,000 7 years ago.

    146 in the NSX in a 45... Wide open road with nothing around. It take too long to get there though. I won't do it again until I have a) a supercharger b)a turbocharger c) McLaren F1.

    My father owned the 250 GTO prototype back in the early 80's and we hit about 130mph at Laguna Seca (prior to the reconfig). At the same track a few years later I was along for the ride in a Dino 206SP at about 150mph (pure guess since the SP doesn't have a speedo). But the fastest I have ever been was on my Honda CBR929RR...about 160...scariest thing I have ever done!

    Although I have matured somewhat lately....

    145 in my '86 328, car had more, but I didn't!

    140 in my father's 360....and that was too easy!

    Went really fast on Rt.89 in Vermont in my Boxer, but was too frightened to look down and the speedo is in kilometers anyway!

    161 in a 911 3.2 every sinlgle time I could down I 95 between Orlando and Miami at night.
    157 in a 328 gts while holding a Cuba libre in my right hand and after 4 of them.
    155 in a nsx

    But this means nothing, what counts is how fast can you make them go in the track.
