    Not As Much Today...

    My Nissan Maxima is a sports model that has a factory speedometer that goes to 160 mph. No, Mr. Policeman, I never tested it! And I certaintly didn't add a performance chip to better that! I was going to take a pic of my guages at 170mph but the scenery was going by so damned...

    More Like, I Hate Driving Slow

    I know a lot of people like to go 90-100mph, or they like racing, but that's not what I'm talking about when I say I love driving fast. I'm talking about just driving down a busy highway. I wish slow people would get the hell out of the way, and let the people who want to drive...

    Slow Down, Please.

    Really, we should all stick to the speed limit, and drive safely. But there are still people who insist on pushing matters, and  the hard fact of the matter is that most people who drive fast shouldn't. To some extent, I fit in that category, and that is just one reason I...

    Fast In Park (caravan Of Luv)

    You don’t have to be breaking the speed limit to be driving a bit too fast... but you do have to be equipped.  My old Explorer is a bit like me; a few dents, high miles but can still get over 100 and all the $hit still works pretty well.  And she is equipped.      Let’s...

    The Faster the Better

    The rush I get from driving fast is amazing.  The best is taking a road trip by myself during the summer.  Pop open the sunroof, drop all the windows, blast the radio and I'm gone.  I seriously should be a cop's best friend, but the speed gods are usually with me...

    Speed and Freedom.

    I learned to drive stick when I was 13 years old in a dune buggy in Fortaleza, Brazil.  That may have been my first moment of feeling true independence-- true freedom.  Granted there were really no road hazards...  no signs, no roads, no people or other cars. ...

    When I Am Behind The Wheel, Is When I Feel Most Alive

    I love the rush of driving fast man.... its just... amazing. When I was younger I use to have a 94 Camaro. Back then I never really opened her up much because I was young, unexperienced and to afraid to really push her or open her up all the way. The fastest I had ever driven her...

    Always thought Italian bikes were, just like Italian cars, overpriced and over rated. They look nice though, just pop down to your clocest beachfront in a Ferrari, and see all the admiring glances you get.  You can weigh close to a ton, and have had your face rearanged with a...

    Full Speed

       When I came to Indiana to visit my mother, I couldn't resist cranking the truck up to full speed on the expressway in the early AM.  No one on the road, but me & my music.  With the governor it topped out at 104 mph and there is something primal about riding in a box at 10...

    Why?

    The roof was up and the windows down as I threaded though the EZpass at 110mph.  Both hands on the wheel, with a stub of a ‘CAO Black’ in my mouth I was thinking…. “Why not?” and   “Why not now?”  Flipping up the lid on the center glove compartment and setting...

    Speed Limits Are Suggestions...

    I think the only time I ever have gone the speed limit is the day I took my driver's test when I was 16. Since then, it's almost like it's impossible for me to go the speed limit. It's pretty hard for me to even stay below 40mph in a 25mph zone. Sometimes I think I may have a...

    I Love Driving Fast

    From the very moment I learned how to drive. Even when I was at that early stage of being afraid when other cars passed in the opposite direction -- I sped up instead of slowing down. My dad, who was my driving teacher, got so angry at me every time we...

    Car Race With A Grey Honda Civic On The Highway To Atlanta
