Can't brag about the Alfa...in lawlessness terms...
My 'Alfa' and 'fast' aren't two words I'd use in the same sentence. My soccer mom Audi A6 wagon with the wife, two kids and 12 rolls of sod in the trunk will do 120. Done it. Feels like about 85 in other cars. The Spider couldn't do 120 if the four horsemen of the apocalypse were on my arse.
But ask me which of my two cars is more fun...
My interesting brush with the law actually came while racing the law. One day while driving home late at night on I-40 from Knoxville to Asheville I was doing my typical 100+ in the old '98 Audi A4 (highly modified turbo...) I look over and there is a cop Crown Vic? or Caprice? next to me, keeping up. I get that shrinking feeling! then notice that the shield on the door isn't the TNHP or even a local cop. I slow a little and see he's got Ohio plates. So I punch it. 110, 120 and the cop is keeping up. Get up to 130ish and the guy maxes out. So I wave. 140+... Took a LOT of road to get up to that speed, though...
Safe on the Autobahn, not so safe in Tennessee where, over a hill, there might suddenly be an F-150 going 60 in the left lane, an 18-wheeler going 59.5 in the middle lane and a fleet of SuckYouVee's going 65 in the right lane. And it is all their 'god given right' to drive at any speed in any lane they choose without regard to traffic flow or common sense or merging or proper use of signals or 'slower traffic keep right' or anything!!!!!!!! And get off your damn cell phone you're a bad enough driver as it is with 'Finding Nemo' blaring from 4 DVD screens!!!!!!
OK, enough of my soap box... Let me in my creaky little yellow car with the rag top that has a goofy 85 mph speedo that is innacurate as hell anyway and no one can figure out what it is (is that an MG?) and find a nice, twisty, narrow country road!
