It's sitting at the botom of a BIG river in Georgia now, but this was once the fastest car I've ever drove. I had it at a 145 mph once

That is/was a nice looking car. Thanks for sharing the picture. Do you care to share the story about the river?

I was driving on the tank trails at Ft. Stewert Georgia doing a little over 90mph when I came around a slight curve and hit a bridge with no sides, could keep it on the road. It slid off sideways, rolled 3 times spun around and flipped on it's top, I was thrown out the pasenger window and had to swim to the bank and walk 7 miles back to the barracks. I tried to get some one out there to see about getting it out, but it was on base property no one would do it, plus this was a WIDE river and prety fast current, it would have cost a fortune for a recovery and I seriously doubt there was much left of it

Wow! That's an amazing story. I'd say you used up at least a couple of your "nine lives" on that one!!
