    * 150+ on my 2000 Katana 750 (Last time I dared look down at the speedo...)
    * 143mph in my 1993 MR2 Turbo. (Took forever to go from 125ish to 143...)
    * 165 in my 2006 300C SRT8. (Hit the electronic limiter...)
    * 92 in my 2004 Sierra. (Was doing a WOT log for tuning...)

    I quit driving like a demon from Hell about a year ago. (And no, it wasn't because of tickets; I just got old, I guess...)

    Hit 172 in my BUILT!!!! STi (she wasn't exactly a daily driver). Did that at the speedway outside of anchorage Alaska. Good times. The only way I know how fast I was going was because I had my laptop setup up (doing some logging prepping for the race weekend). Never beat that speed in the car :( but that weekend I ran a 10.1 and trapped 136mph!! Then the very next run I scattered one of the turbos :(

    Had a built 5.0 long block in an 82 stang, pegged the speedo but calculated rpms / gearing to have hit 150 on some salt flats

    -- I've had the Avalanche up to 160km/h (100 mph) - Electronic limiter kicks in there.
    -- In my Silverado, I hit 180km/h (112 mph) - pegged speedo with the limiter removed
    -- The fastest I've ever been was driving my uncle's Porsche at 200 km/h (124 mph)

    Overall, there's just no good places to really get out and open a vehicle up safely around here, so I've never really had a chance to push any of those vehicles to their limits
