Been driving on my own since about 12 or 13 years old, driving is one of my favorite things to do. Pushing vehicles of all kinds to their limits,
becoming one with your machine...I live by the saying "Drive it like you stole it".
Fastest I've ever driven was right at 130mph in a 2002 BMW 325i. I hit that speed quite a few times, mostly on I95 here in Florida. The car was
mostly stock with a few add-ons like big brakes and some basic intake upgrades and such. Nothing spectacular. That was as fast as the car would go,
and it felt like we were cruising along at about 80mph. Smoothest suspension I could ever ask for in that thing.
The fastest I've ever 'traveled' in a car was about 180mph in a Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, right down the street from my house. Bright yellow,
all-wheel-drive, more upgrades than I could ever describe, either 5-speed or 6-speed manual transmission...taking off in that car was like being in a
jet or some carnival ride that uses centrifugal force to shove you back in your seat. Seemed like it only took about 5 or 6 seconds to get up to a
butthole-puckering speed, and a few more after that my friend just said "180" and came to a dead stop in the middle of the street just as fast as we
took off. My friend who owned it is the only person on this planet that I would ride shotgun at speeds like that.
Nowadays I drive a gutless wonder (old Ford Ranger), it's a lot harder to wrap myself around a pole/tree if I'm creeping through the trails instead
of burning rubber all around town.
