    Wanna see a Bugatti do 225?

    Must be kinda nice to be able to set that up and do it! And deal with the fines, maybe loss of license, and insurance rates like it's chump change!"My Maserati does 185I lost my license, now I can't drive."Joe Walsh

    If it's a war on drugs, then free the POW's.

    Wonder how the ride is at those speeds. I know that stretch of road. It,s around Picacho Peak, between Phoenix and Tucson.

    There's a graphic at the end that says it was done "south of the border." I had naturally assumed California, but maybe not. The cop car was white with a blue stripe. CHP? Locals Or Mexican? Graphics start about 3:00.

    And there are interior shots that show the ride.

    Guess "south of the border" meant south of Utah?

    Perhaps. However, I'm sure some folks wished we were a lot further to the South than we are.

    Remember the guy, back in the heady heyday of VHS, who made and sold a tape of him doing 180 in his sports car? He was arrested, uber arrested.
    I've enjoyed island life for 14 years. That's 10 years more than the Confederacy was around.

    Was on I-8 between Yuma and Gila Bend. Only reason they could "only" go 225 was because of sub-standard CA-formulation gasoline. AZ DPS caught him going only 80...so warning.
    Encrypt everything. Even if you have nothing to hide. It increases the noise floor.
