FWIW, my vdub is 14 years old and on its first tranny. Works fine when you don't beat it to hell. Also, the electrical system and headliner are still in good shape, too

Do the ricer lights make you go 145mph, or is the purely part of your imagination?

OK. So what vehicle did he do it in and where? He hasn't said a complete sentance that makes any sense yet today. I'm thinking he is drunk or hallucinating at this point.

Wellllll.................

I've done 160 mph in a 68 Z28, and buried the speedo @ 155 mph in a 70 Camaro & it was still pullin................BUT I don't think I'd feel as secure in a Farfenoogen at that speed!

BUT, my buddy that has the 66 SS396 Chevelle, his Daughter had a Eclipse GT Turbo that she let him drive ONCE (she must of known or had a memory tach ) and he told me that he was in 4th gear & doin 150 mph and thought he seen a cop ahead & whoooood her down.............never did get it into 5th.....

Not doubtin he did it, but I wouldn't like the feelin in a crackerbox like that!
