The Irresponsible Captain: Some of those old boats will easily hit 120, and they're quite comfortable doing it. The low ratio steering is good over 90, it doesn't feel squirrely at all. They're geared at 2.7 or 2.9:1 so the engine is not over-revving even at that speed. Lots of power with a 400+ CI and a 4bbl.Just don't try to stop quickly on four drums.[www.imcdb.org image 720x476]

danno_to_infinity: Mr. Coffee Nerves: Guy I went to high school with swore to the lord above that he got busted doing 150 on the interstate in his 1978 Chevy Chevette.Yes, every word in that sentence has something fundamentally wrong.Utter rubbish, hogslop, balderdash, and bull cookies. There's no way on fsm's green earth a pos chevette could do 150. Only in free fall, and even then, I'm dubious.We had one of those miserable pieces of shiat, acceleration was measured by calendar. When I went from that to the honda accord LXi with the 12 valve (1986), it was like going from the original wright brothers flying machine to a Saturn V-5 rocket. It was incomprehensible that GM would even insult the consumers with that shiatbox. I have never forgiven the american car industry for that travesty.

timujin: MythDragon: [i1134.photobucket.com image 500x375]140?Laughs.What's the top end on an F4i? I'm on a Blackbird and it's definitely above that.
dittybopper: Mine goes 200 miles per hour./Down hill.
durbnpoisn: Yaxe: You mean my 2009 Chevy Aveo, built in China and a piece of shiat by both countries's standard can't go 100 MPH?/got it up to 90, but I was afraid the transmission was going to start shredding partsI have a 2007 Chevy Aveo. I actually love that car. And, btw: it's actually made in South Korea, and elsewhere in the world it's branded as a Deawoo.The more you know!
jgilb: Little dick Americans are easily fooled. What a surprise.
Glockenspiel Hero: I drive a Hyundai Sonata. The most boring car on Earth. You could paint it white and stamp CAR on the sidesTop speed: 147 mph, clocked by the cops in Arizona[media.caranddriver.com image 429x262]/Never had it even farking close to that kind of speed. Even if the drivetrain can handle it, I know the tires and suspension can't
