Does this count, 178-180 in a Richard Petty Nascar on the track in Fontana CA. 42 laps, best lap average 153. Estimated straight speed at 6,700 RPM 175 mph. Then I had to give it back. Really great ride at 150, an unrully animal at 100 or less.
How about 140 + in a 1971 Nova in 1974, new freeway opened, no traffic at all, 8 mile straight. 2.73 rear gears. 120 MPH speedo bottomed out, tach was at 4800 RPM, let off the gas several miles later with the tach topped out at 5,600, needed more power I think.
