    A farmer from Texas was traveling through Mississippi.
    He stopped and talked to a Mississippi farmer.
    Just how big is your spread? the man from Texas asked.
    The Mississippi farmer replied.....
    “ Look down the road there. Do you see the fence line right past the crooked pine? That’s one corner. Look up the hill yonder, my other corner is right at that old oak.”
    The man from Texas replied...
    “That’s nice but where I’m from it takes me all day to drive from corner to corner.
    The Mississippi farmer replied,
    “ Yep, I used to have one of them Dodges too.”
     
  5. But you have to pee less now.:)
    You could always get strong beer at the liquor store.

  6. If you ain't going at least 85 on the New Jersey Turnpike you best make a beeline for the slow lane or an exit.

    That 85 surely made a difference in my gas mileage in my Deuce when we headed to El Mirage last trip. I jumped from 2000 at 70 to 2300+ at 85. If those 16 gal. tanks for a '32 didn't look like a baby's diaper full of shit, I would get one.

    Lol, I had to check. 700r or like with .70 overdrive , 29.5" rear tires, 3500 rpm works out to 130.65 mph.

    To me it is about congestion you take a 4+ lane highway with heavy traffic and slow downs or a 2 lane where you may meet a car every 5 mile or more Yes you get west of the Mississippi river we have them. Which is safer at 90? But the state won't post them them that way.

    I got clocked at over 210 in my California-licensed Street Roadster in Utah.

    It was at Bonneville.
     
  14. There hasn’t been any yet? :)
    150 is booking on any highway. I was over that once on my sport bike. Cars going your direction are caught up to so fast you think they are on the the wrong side of the road, coming at you. I could not imagine doing that in a 60 plus year old car on a public road. My ass would be so tight I wouldn’t crap for a week.

    I always drive fast, I have to get to where I’m going before my car breaks down.
