Radio flyer wagon. That ride had a patina that'd give you tetanus if you looked at it wrong.

BTW: These wagons are incredibly unstable above 20mph. That's all I really need to say.

About 160 was fastest I've driven. Ran out of power, not balls.

Drove my bike up to 100 dead. Ran out of balls, not power. Holy hell that's scary.

Which is why I used to race those guys on the highway. They don't usually like going over 100 lol

Define fastest?

Top speed was probably my buddies Trans AM GTA twin turbo, we were well over 150mph. But hell I have taken the cobalt over 120mph.

Zero to 60, would probably be the 58 vette I learned to drive a stick on, its an old 427 with a 4spd and a 4.10 rear end, I would guess it tops out between 115-120mph but its insane how fast it gets there. Or my buddies 2005 Mustang GT 5spd, it hauls ass too.

Also not a car, but growing up my dad had a 19ft v hull ski boat that he custom ordered the 305 w/4bbl(think 280 hp) it could top out at 60mph and he had the prop pitched for power not speed. Also my uncle had a jet boat with a 455 olds, I road in in a lot, I have no clue how fast it could go but somewhere north of 85mph it would start coming out of the water wanting to fly away.

Honestly? I think it would have to be a 2012 F250 Super Duty lmao. That thing, with the 385hp 6.2L Boss V8, felt really quick. It's either that my mom's 2003 Camry V6.

I haven't driven a lot of cars, and none of them have been fast...

Fastest I've gone is 112mph in my dad's 04 Echo, hit the governer.

You have no idea lol. I've done my share of stupid crap, had no problem with a buck 60 in a car, but over a hundred on a bike is absolutely mental. Wind making the bike shimmy the slightest bit, the knowledge that you're dead if you screw up...you blow a tire and you're done...

I don't know how the guys in MotoGP do it. It's gotta be hard to go that fast when you've got another 800 pounds in massive balls weighing you down...

I have been right around 100 on an Yamaha raptor four wheeler(In full safety gear). Also my mom has a 500cc Polaris 4x4 utility style four wheeler I have gone over 50(no gear), and also last time we were at the lake I rode the neighbors 850cc Polaris(work style) and I ran out of open ground on that thing at 70mph.(when I did the high speed runs before I waited for years when the lake was down and sand bars come out, one sand bar when the lake is down 6 feet is just shy of 3/4 of a mile).

Here for fun are some pictures of some of the vehicles I have mentioned.(That farmall seriously rocks the speed)

Buddies Mustang


The 500cc Polaris
