    bet on black

    i popped a motor in my '03 ford lightning at about 163 mph. i had a long stretch of empty county road in front of me so i decided to see what she would do.

    i buried the speedo in my '55 more times than i would like to admit, although it only went to 110, but given the rpms i would wind it out to, and the rear gear and tire diameter it had, it was only in the upper 120 mph range likely.

    i have taken my Aprilia RSV mille R up to 160 mph indicated. that almost made me poop myself everytime
  2. I had my bike up to police special last august, it stops at 120 and says police special across the bottom. The guy that owns a local shop says I am too damned old for that stuff any more. I almost agree.
    57Custom300 and afaulk like this.
  3. Back county road on my 1979 Kawasaki KZ 750B little over 110 mph that was crazy on that old bike still have the bike I don't do that shit anymore. On my Harley maybe but I got kids now so just being in the wind makes me happy.

  5. Who the hell knows, the last thing I'm looking at is the speedometer when winding out the crotch rocket.

    160 in a c4 Porsche on the i5 in sandiego, 145 on a street bike, got death wobbles and the bars were slapping the tank all the way down to 70. Scared me enough to slowdown and sell the bike.
  8. Went 100 in this car, once, 1962. Chopped and channeled Model A coupe.

    1970--new ford van with 302, doing 105 all the way through nevada. they had no speed limit back then. we'd pass hippies in vw vans who were doing maybe 40 and sounded like they would blow up!

    125 on my shovel stroker about 1981-82, 96 incher, shook so bad I could hardly keep my fingers wrapped around the grips. When it idled the front wheel nearly hopped off the pavement, it was a brute and never lived long enough to be called reliable. And yes...I was scared shitless, but I wasn't about to let my buddy on a Yamaha XS 11 beat me. That old girl would pull so hard.......

    I averaged 168 over a mile in the Kelly & Hall Lakester in 2009 at Bonneville. It was a licensing pass and I wasn't supposed to go over 150. Oops. I've been 150 in my Tank so far. Looking for more this Summer. Wayno

    When I was about twelve years old a friends two older brothers had the two fastest cars in town, one was a 64 Studebaker Avanti, I remember seeing 140(I swear) on the speedo, the other a 65 Sunbeam Tiger, about 120.
    I use to road race shifter karts at about 120 mph.
    It felt like 200.

    In the 70s had a 71 Pontiac T37 400 4 speed. Showed 140. Buried the needle. Probably 145. Good solid car. My buddy had a 68 gtx 426 hemi, 425 hp. 2 4bbls. It showed 160. He said it did 165 but at 145 I thought the front end was going to leave so that was enough for me.

    This is really a lot faster than my beater '57 Plymouth should go. But it will do it. It was gear limited here with 3.73s, but now has 2.93s and I have no desire to see what it will do with them.

    (I didn't take the photo. I'm dumb, but not that dumb.)
