    well... ive already totalled a car going 70 because of a deer. it had a shitty suspension tho. what would i do? i would do the same thing anyone would do. try to avoid it, brake hard. if not, well... then i guess im fucked.

    what are you talking about? u dont need that much road...
    im in marengo which is about 20 minutes away from rockford... there are like 6 roads i know of that i can easily hit 150 on, one of which i did last night

    maybe that extra 15mph takes 2 miles, THEN i wouldnt know of a place to do it... (fastest ive been is 150)

    My GPS can sit on my dash right over the the gauges. Acually the top is 168, and yes the spedo is accurate up to 155 where it stops reading. Where, I-55 in south east LA. You can get 3 to 4 miles early in the morning with no traffic. Used to run my dragbike 187 in the quarter. Not worried about a short run over 160. It's not sustained, Just short bursts a couple times a week. Why have all this power and not use it. Otherwise, I'd buy a Prius.

    P.S. Too help safety, this road is elevated over the swamp. No critters. What I left out about the car is that I put a really good suspension ( lowered 1.5" and great breaking system. Did the work myself and trust it. If you run when and where it's safe you take some of the stupidity out of it. I DO NOT drive reckless in traffic. 150 comes quickly then the aero takes over. Just have to hold on a little longer.

    Mine has just turned 170,000. It's a 97. No work done to the motor other than new gaskets. Changed the oil every 3,000 miles. First clutch replaced by original owner at 20,000 miles. Second clutch replaced by me at 145,000 miles. Car runs fine. Lots of headlight motor replacements & window motor replacements as well as water pumps. Goal is to get to 200,000 without any major issues.

    i got a 99 T/A with almost 160,000, running 13.7s without any upgrades. burns a little oil between changes about 1/2 quart to a quart depending if i take on long trips cross country and heat the oil up.

    if i tune it up and put new plugs, fuel filter and clean my injectors and maybe check my alternator i should have it back to around the mid 13's. car still burns em like a champ

    My 2002 Trans Am WS6 is still a baby; it has a mere 2,909 miles on it! (For you Canadians that's approximately 4,680 kilometres.)
