Just curious, what is everyone's top speed in an automobile (you motorcycle guys can make your own damn thread). How fast have you gone?

Truck is mechanically limited to 140, and I have gone 140. 4:10 gear stock, 1:0 third gear, 30" tire, and a 6500rpm red line.

160ish in my Trans Am. Getting up to 140 was easy... after that it just creeped and took forever. Good thing I had a long strech of road to work with.

Question should be TRAP SPEED. Anyone can bury their speedo on the highway.

Mustang - 114mph at Byron
Cougar - 120mph on 294. I was 16 and stupid. I was on the way to Great America with Jim and I wanted to see how fast I could go.
I don't think I've gone faster than 85mph in the G8 (on the street). I don't remember what it trapped at GLD, maybe 99mph.
