Depends on if the car is a brick or a torpedo?

Weight has little to do with resistance while moving. Chuck was asking about the drag coefficient of the vehicle. If an older car like my Monte, try 120MPH...IF a newer Camaro try 121 MPH....
Just remember people are way fast when they guesstimate their top speed.
Way smart people like Willys and Chuck just roll their eyes when hearing about this subject because of hearing so many times about so and so's car going 185 Uphill with the windows down!!!!
Do a top speed run past a cop and get a Speed verification. They usually cost a few hundred dollars, but rest assured, your verification certificate will be pretty accurate....
HAHAHAHA!!!!

Well, I hate to show off, but here is my Monte at wide open throttle. Stock 350 with 350 trans with 3:08 rear at 3650 pounds...I actually found this picture on my digital camera when I was using it for the Ed Roth thread.

Check out the pic and beat me if you can....!!!!!
