is the fastest you've ever driven in a street-legal car on a road? (not including Nascar
or other similar races where cars are built to drive fast)i dont drive, but the
fastest i've ever gone with friends, is maybe 90. i'm really afraid to be in
fast cars no matter who is driving
Boston, MA USA I've gotten up to 100 miles once but that was only to get around another vehicle on an old road. I usually don't drive fast tho. Stephanie, 25
TX USA Hi, my name is Brad and Im a 20 year old guy from Sydney Australia. I must say that the fastest I have ever driven in a car was whilst I was over in New Zealand visiting my girlfriend. I found that NZ roads are very easy to speed on and that there weren't many police patrolling the roads. Considering that most of my travelling was done in the country side, I was able to reach speeds to in excess of 160km/h. I would never dare reach such speeds in Australia, as the amount of police is probably more. Anyway I hope that answers your question and I am glad to assist you in todays questions. Bradley, 20
Sydney AUSTRALIA I have only been about 90 -95MPH in a car on the road, but have driven a snowmobile about 105 MPH down a hard pack snow road, and about 115 on a motorcycle. Kevin, 33
Sugar Hill, GA USA About 90-95 miles an hour in a 55 speed zone in Wyoming. I of course crossed paths with the one state trooper in a 100 mile radius and promptly got a $172 ticket Felicia, 35
Lowell, MA USA I once looked down at my speedometer and almost died because I was going almost 90 miles per hour in a 55 zone. I couldn't even believe my car could go that fast. It was a long, boring highway and it was at night with almost no other cars on the road. It surely wasn't intentional...though I don't think that excuse flies with the state troopers.
In some of the emptier parts of the plains states, I've driven about ninety on the freeways.
120 or so, i believe - just to see if my car would do it. it did, but it sounded like suicide, so i got there then backed down. It was kind of scary, actually.
I'd say....120. I just had to know if the car went up to those last little numbers on the MPH dial!
I used to have an old 1984 Chrysler New Yorker that would really shake if you got near 70mph, but I've probably gotten up to 90mph in another car.
Only about 110kpm since I've just started driving, but I have been in cars going a lot faster than that.
110 MPH while racing a blazer
When I was about 19 or 20 I was working for an inventory company. We'd ride out to department stores all over New England and...count stuff. One time they were stuck for drivers (you're not considered a 'driver' unless you've seen that training video). Being one of the few people on the van who wasn't an ex-con or DUI dude I was chosen. 15 people in a passenger van. Odometer pegged past 115. It was 2am and no traffic or cops, just 15 junkies and cons scared shitless...memories
I _think_ I was going 80 or 90 in a 75 once, before I caught myself. But a cop passed me, and he was going faster. That's how fast traffic was.
85 mph, I think.
I had a '79 Honda Prelude that I got for $500. It was a real piece of junk. The speedometer only went up to 85mph, but I'm sure I got it up to 100. Never ran the same, though.
85 mph on the interstate
I have no idea. I've been driven at speeds I did not appreciate AT ALL. As I driver I've probably never exceeded 70 mph.
I've personally driven to 110, when the car cut out...it was an Oldsmobile Aurora, speedometer goes to 140 and i wanted to see if it actually would, but it cut out at 110.
Somewhat like 120 mph. and I didn't get caught!
Once on a long empty bit of freeway, I decided to find out how fast my Ford Taurus could go. I made it up to 'bout 120 before the rev limiter kicked in and I slowed down to a normal speed. I did this all in less than one minute, 'cause I don't want to go to jail.
Lowell, MA USA About 90 on the highway - but that was in my younger and much crazier days. Deb When Mick, Mick with your lips so thick got back on stage with the corpse, Bill Wyman. I think It's time for the Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart to give it a rest. Janet, 42
