What is/was the fastest car you've ever owned?

Lots of knowledge on this site and I was kinda wondering where everyone came from car-wise. Fast can pretty much mean anything you want it to. Whether that be 1/4 mile, autocross or whatever. Please post 1/4 times if you got em lol.

Sadly, the fastest car I've ever owned is the Trep. Hey I'm 18 though.

Mine would be a battle between the Concorde, and my ol' Caprice.

The Concorde ran 16.1 @ 87mph

The Caprice is unknown but it shifts into 2nd at 60mph and 3rd at 90mph..... Never got it to the track though.

I'm only 17, owned 7 vehicles in the last two years....

Fastest ever owned is my Eagle Vision Tsi. When it was new with "V" rated tires, I made a run through Utah and Arizona at 120 MPH. It was a rush. It was very stable.

As a rental, I had a 5 series BMW in Germany; we did a continuous 230 KPH on the A8 Autobahn. I sure wish we had roads like that in the USA.

My Magnum makes 170 MPH and is hands down the best handling car I have had, My '72 Roadrunner with its 440 6 pack transplanted from a '69 GTX is the second fastest at 163
MPH (radar by NY state police in '77, don't ask), the second best handling was the Trep after its Eibach pro kit and the Maggnum wheels with 245/45-18 General Exclaim tires.

My fastest was in my '84 Pontiac Trans Am. 139mph in a 55mph zone while being chased. I was doing about 80 late for work one night and I met a county sherriff going the other way. I punched it figuring he was going catch me anyway and I just wanted to get at close to work as possible. Well the speedo only went to 85 so I had no idea how fast I was going. I met another squad parked at an intersection and I hit the brakes assuming I was gonna get spike stripped. I took off again after that cop did nothing and when I got into town another squad was parked in the road blocking it so I stopped and shut the car off. The original deputy chasing me caught up about a minute later. She was soooo pissed it was funny " WHY WERE YOU RUNNING !!!!" I just kept telling her I never seen her lights and I was speeding because I was late for work. The officer I met at an intersection said I was doing 139 when I hit the brakes and slowed down to 91 mph before taking off again. I got a 139 in a 55 and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle out of it. Fines totalled somewhere around $500 I think $490. Bad idea dumb move but I was 18 at the time and now I drive a family sedan governed at 107mph. (don't ask how I know that)

Fastest and quickest was 2 different cars but the same engine.

Quickest was a 70 Road Runner. 11.54 @ 118 in the quarter. Might have been more in it but I was young and stupid. Didn't know much about setting stuff up and it was only one pass due to lack of roll bar. NHRA rules 11.99 or quicker requires a roll bar.

Sold the car and put the engine in my daily driver. A 1979 Chrysler New Yorker. Thicker head gaskets to reduce the compression from 9.5 to 9.0:1. A smaller camshaft and a dual plane intake.

The New Yorker was not quick off the line because of a tight torque convertor and tall rear gears but it would still haul ass from a roll. Duking it out with a Ferrari 308 I had the 125mph speedometer swung past 125, past the trip odometer, almost back to Zero.

The Mustang I have now is not a quick or fast as those 2 cars but I've autocrossed it and road coursed it and it would easily beat those to cars if corners are involved.

69 Super Bee (under construction)
65 Belvedere 225
87 Ram D150 5.9L, 5 spd
94 LHS 3.5L
93 Mustang LX 5.0L, 5 spd

A 1993, err 1985, err um (?) BMW 533i with headers and duals... WOW... on a 5 speed, it would shift from 2nd to 3rd at 80... YIKES... and DAMN do I miss it... gloss black paint, red leather interior, trip computer, AC, 4 door... modded to remove the rear bumper, made it look SOOO much better. Sunroof...

damn... *eyes tear up*

I sold it for twice what I paid for it, and still have my winter tires from it mounted on winter rims... It was a 4 door, yes, but as a new father, it was NOT practicle...

Fast is relitive , quick, top speed,or comfort all at the same time?

I had 2 1980 New Yorkers that i put lots and lots of miles on they were comfy,fast(again relitive) and would cruise at over 100mph for hours!

Great highway car!

Fast to me is acceleration and top speed. Doesn't mean it's good on the track, or the question would be "what is the best handling car", but the Intrepid is the only car I have had so far and.. Let's just say it's not fast enough haha. Anyone have the part number on the ungoverned PCM, 1st GEN? ;)

You know the suspension is extremely shitty in the RR and New Yorker if you say a mustang handles better. haha Frankly, I'd rather have the Ferrari 308, which would eat all of the cars alive on the track.
