You obviously believe in name calling. Your are arrogant to think
that it is your place to comment where no comment is necessary.
I've also known too many people
killed or maimed by people driving like you described
I don't believe you. Why do you make things like that up? Trying to
prove your point with some pompous statement like that.
or driving drunk.
Drunk I don't recall saying anything about drinking.
You are a very amusing person. I find your pompous attitude
refreshing. Your childish attitude is refreshing in its ignorance.
Of course you will. Its your duty to say these things. Thank you.
I love these moral tirades of yours. Are you looking for support.
Answer to your question is that I would feel terrible if those things
happened. I would feel equally as bad if those things happened when I
was going the speed limit. That is a silly question to ask Matt.
Would anyone say they would feel good. Of course those things did not
happen so what's the point. There wasn't any traffic so to speak.
Every 10 to 20 miles the guy in front of me that I was following would
come up upon a group of cars and we would slow down to get around
them. Since he was a good quarter mile in front of me I would get
caught behind the cars, and yes I went around 115 to get back on pace
People like you think the world
I was unaware that you had such insight to know what I do and don;t
have regard for.
No Matt that's not stupid. W hat I did was not a good thing, but not
stupid. At three AM in the morning with not another living thing in
sight in the middle of know wear its not only acceptable, its common.
Matt on this stretch of road there are no signs of civilization. No
lights on the horizon, none to the right, none to the left, and none
Matt you just don't know when to shut up. I am waiting for your next
silly reply to me. You just have to keep responding to this thread.
You can't let it go can you. I look forward to your continued
preaching. Best regards to you Matt.
I do that to. I like to see how far up the ramp before I'm up to 70. Coming
off the ramp on the way home from work, I don't knock the cruise control off
until I make the first section off the travel lane and the left curve was 40
mph in my old car is comfy at 50 in the Sonata. Overall, I'm impressed with
Some bright sunny day in the right place I'll hit 100 just to say I've done
I was lucky once when I was cruising along a highway & there was
scarcely any traffic I touched 109mph. I never realized it untill my
wife asked me to slow down and later saw on the trip computer of a GPS
unit I was using that the top speed was 109mph! I am sure I would have
gotten atleast 5 to 8 points if I had been caught. The car is real
smooth even at such speeds though..
I've had my V6 up to 100 briefly, 90s more often. It really, really
likes it there but the police do not. Looking for a race track which
might allow me to play a little. IIRC, the tires are rated to 130 or
I have heard fifth-hand reports of Sonatas "regularly hitting 160" in
South Korea. Haven't been there, don't know. Planning to go next year
and see for myself.
The car supposedly still holds the highest speed ever recorded for the
State of Arizona, in the 140s. I can totally believe it can do 140.

and there are plenty of cars that will hit that, whether stock or not.
While I am sure it isn't the highest speed ever recorded in AZ (or anywhere
for that matter) at the time I remember reading that it was the highest
speeding ticket ever given for a photo radar unit.
My "I learned about driving from that story" because it's funny...
Just after getting my license, I went for a drive in my folks' Dodge
station wagon. The fuel pump died two blocks from home. Rather than
suffer the embarrassment of towing or calling for help, I figured I
could push the car home.
Except it was downhill. And there was just me to push and drive. And
I chose to push.
Casualties included the front bumper and a fence post. Missed a parked
truck by about an inch. Took me about a week to sit down again.

It will do at least 140, I was going that fast during rush hour. It may
have been 135, I was drunk and eating while on the cell phone so I can't
recall exactly. The tires are not rated for that high a speed though. I had
a blow out and hit a woman and two kids. Good thing it was the tires fault
or I might have "felt bad." I'll keep you posted on the lawsuit against
Goodyear and Nextel. (They should know talking on their network is dangerous
while you drive.)
So that was *you* that was right up on my bumper in the left lane! Next
time take your paper and move it on over to the center lane and just pass
me. I go plenty fast enough to get where I want to go and if you have a
problem with that get off my bumper and just pass me.
