as a cop...doofus.

120MPH on the Jersey Turnpike (ten minutes later I was pulled over for doing 73 in a 55).

About a month ago, I was doing 110MPH in Manitoba...I mean, the posted speed limit was 110KPH...so if I was pulled over, I was going to play the "stupid, ignorant American"

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 one...my 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

the reason i was driving backwards was cos the golfcart actually went faster backwards than forwards. i ended up crashing into the fence around the tennis courts...there was a gonverner on the thing so it would only go about 15mph, but if you floored it in reverse you'd get up to about 30mph. (this was at work, by the way) after lunch we used to take them and drag race around the track when the grounds guys were on vacation.

Are those clips from the Surreal Life?

I think the fastest I have ever gone was maybe 85-90 mph.

Oh, how cool Mr.B!! Me See..fastest I ever went was 100mph, from LA to Las Vegas in a Toyota yet at my sister-in-law's instruction! And this is after my younger Brother asked to borrow my car-then came back and told me how fast my car was!

Wow, people have not gone nearly as fast as I anticipated. I thought I'd for sure be the slowest at ~97 mph! I suppose this is a good thing...

probably 90-95 mph. I normally drive around 80 on the freeway (the speed limit is 70 here). I once got pulled over in Cleveland for doing 70 in a 50 zone, i didn't even realize i was speeding cause none of the freeways have speed limits anywhere near that low in southern california, luckily she just gave me a warning.

Let me put it this way: If I get another ticket, I will have my driving privileges revoked.

We all should obey the law and drive safely. If I don't, I wont be driving at all.
