On the street, a 99 Porsche Carerra C4, 155 mph (could have gone more). On the dragstrip, 68 Pontiac GTO - 455 built, 11.40 @ 118 mph. My cousin owns a Pro-Mod, a 37 Chevy body with a blown and injected 540 cid, it runs in the 7 seconds. If I get my NHRA license, he just might let me make a run!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

110MPH, 1994 Chevy 2500 extended cab short bed pickup. Bed FULLY loaded stuff on the ladder racks. Middle of the day, I was really lucky and left off and was only doin 15 over when I passed the cop. I could go way faster in my mom's 2000 Grand AM SE but it is governed to drop a gear at 105.5 MPH. Kind of stupid cause the speedo goes to 120 on it. My dad's truck is a guess but I think its pretty close, his speedo stops at 85.

i went a 125 in our audi TT turbo, but i could have kept going all the way to 150, then the speed limiter would kick in, and in our audi A8 i maxed it out on the limiter at 130 and in my austin healey kit car with a 327 chevy i maxed out the speedo, so it was over 120, it look like 130 or around there

buddie of mine has a firebird that kicks in a limiter at 115mph. I was right behind him the whole time. I'd rather he be in front to get the ticket tho, so I never tried to pass him. (91 honda accord LX - LOL)

Top speed acheived in a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX (turbo, AWD) was 160 mph on a long stretch of country road. RPM hit redline during this run in top gear. I was getting freaked out at this speed. It's my roomate's car. Here is list of mods, and a pic of the car.

Note: the numbers on the car are for racing in Auto-cross.

Parked
This pic was taken the same day we hit top speed. The cold air during the fall weather was great!

The scariest part about going that fast is the posted speed limit was 55 mph and it's in the heart of deer country.

I do believe I was with, or did this occur a different time?

I know I was with in that car right when he got it, and we were going really fast, dunno how fast tho.
