I can remember a turbo diesel 350 keeping up with my 2007 350z from 60 to 135 in South Florida about 15 years ago. After that they quit and I kept the pedal mashed until I hit the limiter at 160 mph. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a stock truck. This was out in the swampland on I-75, commonly called Alligator Alley.


The last few times I went through Miami on my way to Key West about 3 years ago 100 mph was the norm around there. I travel the country a lot and Florida is like the wild west when it comes to speeding. I got stopped doing 100 in a 70 in South Carolina and the cop was threatening to take me to jail. I was used to Florida where I could get a ticket for 113 in a 65 and the cop would just hand me a ticket no questions asked.


I no longer live in Florida though. I sold my house last year to some people from New York. They paid cash. There's way too many people in Florida now for my taste. I'm retiring in Montana, but living in Idaho right now. But I'm in Nebraska on a job at the moment... I travel a lot. 😁

Great memories, I love it.  There happens to be a very close person to me that I can't divulge his name or relationship to me.  Anyhow great guy....about 8 years ago he got stopped for going 121 on a 65 heading north on 331 from 98 towards Freeport, FL.  Turns out it was a 1k fine, but that was all.  Yes that's a lot of money but he didn't go to jail, nothing....he had to do several online courses and pay his fine, of which is way fair.  His mom was not impressed...nor was his dad but he does hold the title for the max ticket ever gotten in the family....lol...If that had been Maine where I grew up, dear lord almighty, they would have towed his car off and he would have went straight to jail.....criminal speeding...etc etc...would have lost his license for at least 180 days.....different states, different rules.....I thought we were the united states of america.  But when it comes to laws, we are no different than Europe or other countries.
