    Saturday me and the wife decided to take a drive out into the country just for something to do. We were cruising along on a nice 2 lane country road. Speed limit was 60mph, and we were behind 2 other cars, all of us doing around 65mph. And then we all came upon a beat up van doing 50mph. There was oncoming traffic so we all just sat behind the van for quite a few miles. Eventually we got to a spot where there was no oncoming traffic and wide open straight road. I expected the cars in front of me to pass the slow van, but no one made a move. So I got over and nailed the gas so I could overtake all 3 cars. By the time I was past the 3rd vehicle (the van doing 50), I looked down and saw I was doing 107! Holy crap! From 50 to 107 in no time at all LOL My wife (who is not a car person at all) calmly says "Well that was impressive... Now slow down" LOL

    After I got back down to normal speed. She then says "Yeah, that was so smooth. I had no idea you were going that fast, it really didn't feel like it". :cool:

    Yeah, the very first thought when I looked down and saw 107 was "Please please please don't be any cops ahead"

    These cars will get up there quickly. I was getting on the interstate one morning going to Caffeine and Octane with my son. I was on the gas a bit. Once I was about to merge on the highway my son said "DAD"! I look down and was going 104. He just had a big old smile on his face then persisted with question if what would have happened if the cops saw me...LOL

    With the supercharger I get from 40 to 80 before I know it. I have to be careful because 80 will get you a willful and reckless in WV. That is 6 points right there and that would get me in trouble at work.

    Can't tell you how many times I've been cruising along, open road with no close traffic, listening to music, minding my own business and look down at the speedometer and realize I'm doing 90+.

    If i take off from a light, spiritedly, shifting into third i have to fully let off the throttle, because i am already severely breaking the speed limit.

    Same thing our next door neighbor said to my Father when I put my 70 R/T through the back wall of the garage. Along with "what's wrong Wayne?" Didn't you like where the garage was at?"
    My father however was not impressed.

    The speed limit in the panhandle is 70 on the interstate. But everyone is running 80. It still amazes me how fast the 5.7 will get into the hundreds from rolling along.

    IT is very difficult out here to go the speed limit. As well said above, you look down and wow, 90 or 95 and you think you are just going the speed limit!! With no traffic the temptation to speed is addictive!!! Force myself to hit the cruise control!
