Just a question for all to see the fastest you've ever gone.Must state speed, vehicle and year of vehicle. If you want you may also tell where. Videos are also welcome. Remember safety first, so dont go out speeding like a mad person.
My personal best:
Mph:120 Grin
vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi eclipse
Where?: Interstate 78 towards Harrisburg

120 mph-late one night-hitchhiking with a buddy of mine picked up by two drunk marines-went blasting south down Rt1.

Proof there is a God that I'm still here.

149 mph indicated, I-90 eastbound east of Issaquah, WA heading up into the Cascades. Late evening during the summer of 2009. Porsche 993C2. Only reason I let off the gas was due to a nasty vibration that started around 135 mph and got progressive worse. Still haven't gotten it fixed.

Love (no, hate) necroposting...but then again for car guys this topic is kinda open for updates.
