I was driving the route number by accident one time...95 mph on Interstate 95. I have a lead foot so I usually hit the cruise control at 75. It's only 20 mph over the speed limit!

85, maybe almost 90. I usually never go over 65 or 70 at the most, but I was trying to get the hell down the road because I was spooked there were no exits for 67 miles! I was in Wyoming. Being from the east where there are well stocked exits every 5 to 10 miles it blew my mind to see a sign saying there were no services for that long and I was terrified! I thought, NOTHING is here, what if I break down, even though I have AAA who's coming? There was no one else on the road and I thought, okay, I'm gonna just put it to the floor and blow this empty space away!

between 95 and 100 but don't think I got quite to 100. It was on my driving shift on one of my many spring break road trips for southwestern Florida. We had my friend's parent's mini-van crammed to the ceiling with 6 peopl and 8 days worth of camping stuff. Coming down the steep mountain grades in the Appalachians, using the breaks cased the van to shake and vibrate violently. Everyone was sleeping and hardly anyone else was on the road so I just let the thing coast!

when I drive to the beach I usually go 80-85 unless there's bad traffic b/c cops hardly ever watch that stretch of road. We (as in friends, family, and most of the people I know) usually drive about 80 on our highways and it's rarely ticketed b/c there's like a 5mph margin of error and going 75 is only 5 mph over the speed limit.

100 mph on my way from LA to Vegas. There were cars passing me too! That was a little scary to have someone speed by me.

uhmm... ONE TIME ONLY in summer-- driving an 80s Buick Regal 90mph on fast lane somewhere/in the middle of nowhere in thick fog around 4am for 10 minutes. (car was on CRUISE CONTROL, for some reason incrementally gaining speed, shaking like the NC-1701A Enterprise pushing its limits)

The fastest I've gone is 110mph (177kph), in my lowly '94 Saturn. I was driving back home from LA on I-5, and hit a nice pocket of drivers who were all going fast, so I got in the middle and probably averaged 95mph for a good hour and a half.

ahh a kindred spirit. I was once told that I can drive better backwards than forwards. Comes in handy on our long one-way driveway.
I don't think I want to admit it in public. I'm a bit of a lead foot at times. I only do it when it's safe. I think all the kangaroos that leap out at you around here hones your reaction time..
Dr Teeth good sister and I had an old Hillman years ago.We had to reverse it up a dark steep hill one night I wish we still had it. My bro-in- law had an old black and yellow Vauxhall and he painted the road runner on the side of it. Classic
this car- loving thing must be contagious. It is about all my two eldest sons talk about
