Ok...

Had my chance Sunday morning heading south on the I-5 thru Camp Pendleton at 5:00 AM. 16 miles of straight freeway and no tail lights as far as I could see. Wound the goat up and let her rip. WOW! Had the brights on high so I could watch for highway bananas but the goat didn't even complain at 140! Held her there for about 15 seconds and coasted back to 80 mph.

I LOVE this damn car! :hail:

Do it Mike! Just be careful and make sure there's no traffic around. No reaction time at those speeds! :hail: :hail: :hail:

zbaron: if you're getting to SFO in 15 minutes from WC, you're using an invisibility spray that I'm not finding at Autozone! And you're right about the traffic. What roads are you thinking about for a drive?

This sounds like a great impromptu get together...I'll be watching for a plan to form.
