Need For Speed

Need for Speed

“ The primary reason I am racing is because 
I enjoy being in a fast car, being on the edge.”
--Jacques Villeneuve

I drove my ’68 Mustang
130 mph.

Today’s highest speed limit,
in Texas,
is 85.

There is no speed limit
on the Autobahn
or the Isle of Mann.

Last year a Ferrari
was clocked in Texas
at 242;

chump stats
compared to the
Thrust SSC
in 1997,
tooling along
at 760
on Black Rock Desert.

Can't even imagine that kind of speed ... my brain would explode. I got in an accident the other day going ... 1 mile an hour. I kid you not. And it did quite a bit of damage. ;P
