Think I may have hit 85 momentarily when passing a lane hog In my 78 Trans Am I went 140 once on a long stretch of freeway. When I think of it now, those Remington XT-120 tires probably were never meant for anything like that, lol

Don't worry, people drove fast before speed ratings were invented.
Besides, those ratings are for sustained speeds, as I recall.

Here's the deal about speeding in my estimation. So long as the road conditions and weather conditions are good, speeding is not a problem IF your car is properly maintained. The amount of other traffic dictates what is reasonable and what is not. On the Tri-State Tollway around Chicago, the speed limit is, IIRC, 55 mph. However, traffic routinely travels at 70 mph. I guess 70 mph is then the correct speed. I-10 in west Texas has an 80 mph limit. From my experience there, it is virtually void of traffic so 90 mph likely is no problem on a regular basis. When we travel between IL and SC (6 round trips/year) I generally set the cruise on 6 or 7 mph over the posted limit. Sure, I've crossed the 90 mph mark and 100 mph mark on numerous occasions; but, I really don't do that when there is other traffic around me. The roads and cars are both built to handle those speeds. It's just a matter of not being too stupid about it. I suspect there are very few people that do not, or have not, been guilty of speeding. Once we agree on that, then it's only a matter of each person's interpretation of how fast is too fast; and, I suspect that is a matter of opinion and not fact. Nobody would normally think 3 miles over the limit is too fast but if it causes an accident then it might be too fast - that time, while 40 over the limit that has no effect whatsoever likely isn't too fast - that time. And always remember, in the USA the red, white, and blue stands for freedom.....until you see it flashing in your rear view mirror.
