Man, I would be afraid to go anywhere near that fast. I froze up in some guy's '80 Camaro once when he was tearing around some side streets. He slowed to a crawl when I said I wanted to get out though.

Also, I thought the Bluesmobile, a 1974 Dodge Monaco with a 440 and a police-certified 140 MPH speedometer, was going pretty darn fast, doing 118 at one point, then I saw this. That scene was re-shot with people walking in the background to prove that the film hadn't been sped up.

I was able to view the first one, but the second and third kept crashing my vlc player before it could open them, didn't try any more of them.

I went 117 in my 73 mustang once, and 110 im my 89 prelude, smooooth like glass in that car. And quite a fun sound to open and close the sunroof at that speed.

Would not do over 100 on a bike though.... I use to do 50 down this one hill on my mt bike when I was a kid (25) not no more though....

Sound like you would have done well as a stunt driver in the original Gone in 60 Seconds (which I can't find on DVD anywhere around here).

I used to do that sort of thing on a bike (a regular bike, no motor), often slamming on the rear brake, leaving a long black smear on the pavement. Never again.

Lets go fast in something most under 55 yrs old
never heard of. Keep in mind this car was NOT meant to be
sports car. I did have the pleasure of driving one once,
one of the super charged ones. My uncle inherited one
& we got to take it on a beat run before it got auctioned.

So kids crack open a beer, light up a Lucky & hop in.
When we get back see the other videos on Studes
like the Hawk & Lark that can also fly.

You talking about the Studebaker Avante? IIRC those had the highest top speed of anything mass produced on the road at the time.
I've heard their compacts were real good drag cars if you wedged the biggest engine stude offered in to 'em.


I've opened up the throttle on my '78 Lincoln Mark V on the highway before....Speedo only reads up to 85MPH, so with that 460 V8 under the hood and no load there was still plenty of acceleration left after the needle pegged...I'd imagine she'll reach 'mystery speed', as I call anything over 85, filled to the gills with TVs too...I've had her close to that fully loaded with tube TVs a couple of times and it seemed like she still could do much more if I had the stones/sufficient insanity to ask.
There is quite a sensation of speed when driving a 20' 5000lb car in a non-sedate manner...

Yup
And I forgot the link

Fastest production car for 2 yrs. You could buy a faster hand made
exotic but any middle class American could walk in & buy one.
Life was so simple. Just drop a little super charger in & pour
more gas in.
My stupidest ride was my '72 Toronado. Burried the speedo at
120 mph on Rt2 one nite. Bias ply tires with snows up front
Also abt a 5,000 lb car, 455 cid. You know the feel, or, lack
of it in a land yacht over 100mph. Damn scary......

Back around 25 yrs ago, one pretty Sunday morning, I got my '67 Lincoln Pervertable out on the 4-lane when it was pretty much deserted, to see what she'd do. It has a 462, the last year for it, in mid-68, they switched to the 460 Ford corporate big block, which was TOTALLY different from the Lincoln 462. The big ol' Lincoln got up to 100 indicated in no time, & had PLENTY left, despite its nearly 3-ton weight. But I started thinkin', you're in an almost 25 yr old car that has no top, loosy-goosy front end, questionable brakes...Mebbe you'd better slow down...So I did, to a mere 70, as if that woulda made any difference..

Yah, I did mine on a Oklahoma straight country road you could see 500 feet in every direction, no curves, no trees, no guard rails, no cars...... It was before I put all the sport suspension stuff on the mustang, so over 100 steering just became a suggestion. It took a while to get to 117, after 90 it just kinda accelerated slow.... 117 must have been around top end. The Prelude had more to go, just did it in a different spot, began to run out of straight road. Heart rate matched the mpg needle all the way..... Wonder if the same thing happened to that guy on the motorbike as it went to 220.......

I've seen on youtube kids today get it up to speed, get out of the drivers seat and stand on the roof..... I guess I was really sane.....
