Fastest is probably the S60 R I just bought. That or the few WRX's I've driven.

For motorcycles, I haven't taken one over 60 MPH before... the '72 Bonneville won't do that

My 4 wheeler won't go above 45. Runs out of revs in fifth gear.

My old 240sx with a KA24DE, full exhaust (header, gutted cat, and full 3" exhaust), pod air filter on stock piping, and emissions equipment removed.

I've done 80mph in my old raptor, but that thing over 70 was scary to high floatation

I think downhill the wind at my back when I was younger I might've touched 50....honestly more than a few seconds at that I was afraid I'd blow the bastard up. That was revving the absolute balls off it.

Somehow I never did manage to blow it up. Had the thing completely submerged in water, engine full of water, crank it over a few times, water dumping out the exhaust, fires up and blows it out and soldiers on.

Also had the red "oil temp" light on for very extended periods of time pullling stumps and trees, hauling crap...steam rolling off the head fins lol. Should've warped the head or at least blown the HG.

I also hoon it quad racing style in the field...rev it till the valve float takes over every time.

It's been a little tempermental lately but only because the carb hasn't been cleaned in 10 years with all this abuse.

Brand new Corvette ZR1 with 6 miles on it and a stick shift. I knew the salesman.

Fastest non-road car was an Indy 500 car at Homestead super speedway with the Mario Andretti racing experience, so much fun.

I've been at the controls of a 1967 Mustang with a somewhat built 351W that gave absolutely no damns about the gearbox being stuck in 2nd and 3rd gear. That thing would roast the tires on command regardless of where the speedo was, and it would quite easily win the C-note challenge if the stars aligned enough for it to hook up. Top speed was probably only a buck 20 or so, but that's moot because you're going to have the biggest grin on your face when you get there. Hehe.

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
