120-ish in a 1970 Charger R/T 440 with thrashed T-bar mounts (it turned out).  I couldn't tell if I was steering or not.   :eekbig:

Rode shotgun in a late '90's Ferrarri of unknown model that got up to 135 and stayed there comfortably.  It still had at least a gear and a half left!  Suffice to say, we never saw that last gear....

Scary ain't the word for it!  No matter how you slice it, everything happens real fast above 100, except slowing down!

Welcome to the board Cudadude!  I would love to see your 70 cuda project.  It would be great if you started a new thread in Cuda Challengers Galore and introduce yourself and your car.  Nice to have you on board!
