yeah they still make them. in fact theres a new design for 05 (i believe) and i think that the new M5 motor is supposed to be a 5.0(?) V10 with 500 hp. trying to keep up with the 04 E55s, which will give an unsuspecting Z06 driver a run for their money.

Yeah, lucky to be alive. Actually I never had the gonads to take it anywhere near its potential. It was my friends RX-7 that I had to baby sit while she went to Africa on Safari.(I also had to water her fish and feed her plants while she was gone - oops I meant feed her fish and water her plants while she was gone). Besides the power, it got a lot of "What is it" simply because not too many were sold in this area(she got a real sweet deal from a dealer that had to unload a boat load of these vehicles at the end of the year).

Well, this is kinda crazy, but the fastest car I've ridden in was a Dodge Omni -of course one of the 500 modified by Carrol Shelby (1986 Shelby GLHS Edition Omni -GLHS meaning Goes Like Hell, Shelby) and then after that another $25k+ was invested. It was capable of hitting the rev limiter in 5th gear (of a totally custom trans) from a stand still in less than 20 seconds, which was all of 173 mph. The guy that owned it lives in Minneapolis just sold it and here-say is that he got over $35k + for it -I personally have witnessed true automotive enthusiasts/collectors offer him $20-25K at shows and he'd just smile and laugh and say, "Nope!" THe fastest we went when I was in it was 120 and we got there damn quick (he wanted me to touch the dash board and I almost couldn't under acceleration).
As for the fastest I've been in a car it was in my 1988 Lebaron Convertable. I was racing a 2000 Corvette and although I lost I was only 200rpm short of the red-line and could have gotten there, but I started thinking about not having a roll bar and I had the convertable top down. Speedo only reads up to 125 so I had to calculate the gear size, tire size, and rpms (actually Ed Peters, and old Chrysler engineer, did it for me) we figured out that I had been in the immediate vicinity of 157-159mph.

fastest car i've ever driven was a 78 Buick Regal. It went about 120. Fastest thing with a motor would have to be my CBR600F4i. I've had it up to 145mph.
