I was just thinking about the fastest I have ever driven any car I have ever owned. I thought about my old '62 Biscuit, but the fastest I ever remember getting it was around 120-125. I thought about my brother Reece's '61 Impala and the same #'s come to mind. I do remember one fall evening when my buddy Gary and I were riding home after a high school football game in my '64 Polara. We were coming by the rock quarry when I opened it up. The 318 poly motor just kept on going; 115... 120... 125... 130... and then the needle was buried somewhere in the depths of the dash. The car at this high speed was riding smoother than it was at 65 mph. My adrenaline was pumping. My moment of zen was interrupted when Gary mentioned "Dude, something smells like ass", followed by a howl, and "Holy shit my foot's on fire!" Turns out the insane speed caused my heater core to 'splode, emptying at least a half a gallon of antifreeze on old Gary's foot. The cost of a '64 Polara 4-door 318 car: $500 Full tank of 89 octane: $20 (at the time) New heater core: 6-pack bribe to Reece Doing about 140: Minor burns on best friend's foot Memories that last forever: Priceless Note to readers: If you own a 63-65 MoPar, better coat the front with those ceramic space shuttle tiles, because they WILL be fast. (Just watch out for the heater core) Now how fast have YOU gone???
