I've done 95 in a Corvair (4 bll). Talk about floating, I thought it would flip over backwards.

I think you'll love them. Just make sure you ask for lots of hot sauce as those clam strips are really good when drowned in that Louisiana style White Castle hot sauce. I'm surprised they don't have any near you, as they are practically around every corner here in Cincy.

sunspot, as a former Corvair owner, do those cars really have oversteering problems as they were notorious for?

They should bring back the Corvair...my uncle used to have one...dude kept it icey clean for no apperant reason. It ran like crap,rode like mattress on wheels but that dude would Armor All that thing like it was show worthy. Hmm...come to think of it,I'll bet all that Armor All didnt help how the ride felt either

110+ in a 84 300Z Turbo, car was a piece of crap and video would probably look like space shuttle footage. Thought it was going to break into pieces so I had to back off.
Buried my bro's brand new 86 Turbo Cougar XR7 I can't say how many times. lol.
120 in my '89 LSC. (Monte SS's used to hate my little sleeper Lincoln)
Buried my '96 (when new) Grand Caravan speedo through every straight stretch of I-95 between SC and VA
Did the same in my (yes, when new) '04 Suburban.
Set my personal record from Orlando to Philly (1050 miles door to door) in around 15 hours 30 mins (actual clock time) including ALL stops (gas, bathroom and 1 sit down meal) in the Suburban.

You've got balls because i'd be scared to do that in something as big as a Suburban. Now the Lincoln LSC's were cool once you got used to their ultra tall gear ratios

Had a '69 Torina Cobra but I only hit about 120 with it.
With the '04 Mustang Cobra I've gone 85 . I do have the limiter off so it will go 170+ but I'm older and wiser (so far anyway).

110 mph in a 1973 Celica.

90 mph in an 87 Chevy Sprint.
