Let's see--in 1962 I was hitchhiking (it used to be fun) and a guy picked me up in a '62 Corvette he had modified. We were driving on a new expressway in VA and he buried the speedometer at 150 or 160 I think--I was so scared and excited at the same time that all I remember is that the light poles on my right were going by so fast I almost soiled my pants. Nice ride, though.
In '72 I bought a Buick GS Stage 1 convertible and the Buick dealer mechanic used to take it out on I-95 in WPB where I lived. He would tune it at the dealership and then take us for a ride on I-95--it was built but not yet open for about 10 miles. He would bury the speedometer, stop, make an adjustment, and do it again. He told me we were doing well over 130, but I have no way of knowing. I sold the car 3 years ago to pay for a divorce, but I now have a '70 GS with a modified engine, suspension, etc. I don't know yet how fast it will go, but I can tell you for certain that it ain't slow and it is faster from a stop than the '72.
180mph in my modified mitsubishi evo.
it would have to be very modified to reach 180mph, cough bull *beep*
