160+ in my Camaro SS
I remember being young and dumber than I am now. There were a few times roads were blocked for racing... not sure the police sanctioned it though.They did make it but they didn't use the CVPI moniker. It was my state issued marked cruiser. I was there as honor guard for the I-40 opening ceremonies. I-40 was barricaded at I-95. We were there to practice the ceremonies which took place the next day. About a dozen of our vehicles went thru and I and a Sergeant placed the barricade back across the road. As I pulled away I saw in my rear view mirror somebody stop and start to move the barricade. Went back and stopped a couple from getting around it which would probably have been a mess if others did the same. Down the road at Newton Grove there were bleachers already installed on the highway for the opening ceremonies. After securing the barricade we hit the road and arrived at the site just as the last car in line was getting there.
The fastest "feeling" thing I ever drove ( and still drive) is my old Jeep; no doors, no top, slightly lifted, no sway bars and leaf springs front and rear; at 75 mph it is terrifying, and as for corners, well, it's a brick.....What I have driven that felt the absolute fastest.
High power go-karts.
They just feel fast. And corner like hell.
That's right! An LTD. Can't remember scat any more. My last cruiser was a 94.That would have been an LTD police package, a completely different vehicle, with a 5.8 ( 351 Windsor) and the box body; the CVPI ( which carried the "police interceptor" badge , the LTD, in any of it's 1980's forms, did not) had a 4.6 and was a totally different vehicle; I was around back then too....
Mid 2000s there was a local guy with a Ferrari F40LM. Have some pictures following him on the local racetrack. It was "licensed" for street use (he ran dealer plates on it).Now, the fastest car I've ever been in.... That is a good question. Could be a Ferrari F40 or a Porsche 935DP.
Getting a 70s trans am to 175 would require a LOT OF POWER. A lot.It was in a buddy's Trans Am back in the late 70s. He had extra large rear tires so the speedometer wasn't right he figured the speed from how much the speedometer was off & checked that by the tach. He figured we were going about 175mph. He wanted to go faster but we were running out of road for stopping.
It was a long straight road with very few crossing roads & it was late at night. LOL
