You wanna know about driving style? I haven't had the 'pleasure' of riding with JSeabert yet (next door neighbor for those that don't know), but we were washing our Bonnevilles this weekend, and I noticed something funny about his front tires. His sidewalls are scrubbed about 3/4" down the face. And yes, they ARE properly inflated!

Anyone wanna ride with him? I think he deserves an honorary spot in the Drifter-driving-style club.

Hey, there is nothing wrong with driving in "WARP" speed. Although i have to drive a bit slower right now, malfunctioning TPS O2 sensor. It really sucks cause i love going really fast and weaving back and forth on the freeway. That and taking city corners at 25mph. Hey Bill I got an idea for those Fog Lights. Paint something like eyes on them. Or maybe RICE EATER. There is nothing in the empty spots and something would be better than nothing, right? since i can't spare $100 for new ones right now.

My speedo goes to 125, and I can tell you from experience, the HUD goes that far, too! I'd imagine it quite literally goes to 199.....digital, 3 digits. Anybody wanna take one for the team here?

Turtle, I'm about to buy the Jet Stage 2 chip.....it removed, or just raised your top end limiter?
Bring it up to 125 MPH then switch the HUD into metric mode!
Thats roughly 200 km/h!

If we wanted a race car or a Cadillac we woulda bought one of those. Lucky for us we got the best of both worlds, we can cruise in this car and we can compete with the competitions "muscle cars".

Once ya go Pontiac ya never go back.

There is no greater thrill in life than to cruise in my Bonnie with some good ol' rock n roll blasting! I tend to drive fast everywhere I go. My accelerator is more comfortable going fast. I always feel the need for speed and my bonneville accomodates me every time I drive. I drive so fast that I have to stay in the inside lane because I am passing everyone on the road

I drive with the car shifting around 2500-4000 rpm. Im trying to avoid WOT now because of the 6000 rpm shift point, something is f*cked.

The fastest ive ever been was 240 in an NSX. Too much traffic to go faster, and I swore I was going to **** my pants............

i drive the ville like a gramma(averaging over 300 miles per fill up, i might add). i hit between 160 - 165mph in my Mustang, and she was pretty stable. ummm, i was with my friend when he maxed out(electronically ltd.) his dads M5 at 157mph, and it was unbelieveably smooth. but that was back in the day, and i guess we've grown up a bit since then....
