personally i can;t say i've ever done 120+ through that particular area in my 67gto.... however i have done some stuipd things with it, like around 130-135mph down mainstreet i swear it wasn't me, considering it's the only 67 gto registered in the province

My 67 GTO in 1967 coming back from Vegas. Floated the valves at just under 6,300 RPM with 3.36 rear and a 27" tire. Brother-in-law and sister-in-law in rear seat slept through the whole adventure. The wife unfortunately was awake and took days before she calmed down.

Best at speed: Infiniti Q45T would come out of passing gear at 123 and give you a good belt in the back when it did.

No, but I did take the I-280 bridge at 135-140 mph in my old camaro.

Not sure which would be scarier, the I-280 bridge is nice and wide but it doesn't have much for guard railings and it's a long way down to the river, on the other hand if you lost it on I-74 you'd be like pinball between 2 cheese graters. I'm a lot older and a tiny bit smarter now, not much chance of me doin' it again.

a 1970 4-speed 340 T/A Challenger. Unfortunatly I wraped around a tree aking stupid on the road, but those were the good old days when i was just 20. To my surprise I heard the rumble of thet engine a few years latter in my drive-way. A father and son bought it from the insurance company and spent 2 years rebuilding it.

2004 - 1970 = 34 years, not 24. Are you 54 today, or were you 30 back then?

I think you need to re-stamp your age there buddy.

You're assuming it was a "new" '70 Challenger. There were still plenty of musclecars around in '80................

Other than our '94 Z28 I would have to say a '67 Impala factory 427, and a '70 Cuda w/440 6 pack 4 speed. Of all I would have to say the Cuda was the most fun to drive!!!!!!! It would just flat out **** an 'git!!

2003 Chevy Silverado HD 3500 dually with a Duramax Diesel and a 6 spd. Burnout 1st - 3 sideways in third and hit 4th with a bark. Out ran a stock mustang 5.0 . The guy said his truck is stock but what do you think? I told him he was full of it. But he says its stock.

He prob turned up the boost. and he may be running propane and or nitrous injection.

Those diesels are getting VERY fast!

let the clutch out at an auction in a 69 boss 428. couldnt get it. drove with my dad in a Cale Yarborough special cyclone 428 as well, didnt buy it.. peeled out big time with a salesman in the back of a 97 6sp formula 'bird. i'd say it was the fastest of the three factory rides.

I'd have to say the fastest stock car that I've ever driven was a Subaru WRX. A couple months ago I was looking for cars with a friend and went into a dealership. The guy there was a gearhead and so we started talking and I was tellin him about my chevelle. After about an hour of goin back and forth and the dealership was then closed he went out back and got a brand new WRX, with about 200 miles on it. He let me do a couple passes out in the back of lot which was close to an 1/8th mile pass. I feel bad for whoever bought that car cause after we did the passes we went bombin around town and the thing ripped. The car is too goofy looking for me and the interior isn't that cool.

The fastest STOCK car I've ever been in was a 92 gmc Syclone. Off the factory floor it does low 13's.

you can hold a conversation at normal tone at a buck-forty in a new porsche Turbo S, amazingly smooth and quiet...very refined, like it costs $140k or something, definitely get what you pay for! The C6 Vette is SEEEEEXXY and the hydraulic clutch and trans make buttery smooth shifts but I wasn't allowed to go over 2nd gear(GM invitational drive dealio) and a '94 ZR1 vette is a ton of fun to drive-the powerband on that thing is rediculous, 1,500 to 7,000 it pulls HARD the whole way. And of course none of these were my cars and I will most likely never own any of them or drive any of them ever again.
