> Jon, you are going to get me in trouble..  I'm already trying to track down the '69 RoadRunner I used to own.. Now somehow, I need to find a way to sell more cars so I can afford to play..  and most likely pay a speeding, excuse me SPEEDING ticket..  because I really want to try a road like that one day..  At least once to say I've done it..  I'd never had the RoadRunner over 160-165MPH.. because I-57 was the best stretch I could get to.. I usuallly used old US HWY 45.. But only had a few miles between towns.

I used to work with a guy who claimed that when driving cross-country
in his S2000, he held 120+ MPH for over 2 hours in one of the flat,
rectangular states. Early morning, top down.
