I lik e to drive up (and down) Flagstaff mountain. It is fun to try to keep up with the locals. Plus the HID's make it really cool to drive on. Also Taking Highway 36 up to Estes Park is fun, if there isn't a lot of traffic.

well i drove my focus from Philadelphia to Florida shortly after buying it. It took me 17 1/2 hrs to get there (straight thru only stopping for gas n mcdonalds, i drove myself the whole way there). So on the way back, I figured Id do the cannonball run and see how fast i could get home. Both in traffic and on open road I pushed the limits when given the chance, I think the top speed i hit was 110-115 MPH. I made it home in 14 hrs!!! considerable difference when driving like an azz..loll this was on i-95 straight down the east coast

There's a road down where I live that starts at a stop light and has a straight away for about a half mile and a little lip at the end of the straight. If you hit it at about 80 you can get some crazy air. I've only done it a couple times because I don't want to risk injuring my underside, but it's always fun to do in other peoples cars, especially my parents. lol.

Not bad. I drove to Florida in 10.75 hours. According to Mapquest it takes 16. It usually takes 13 hours when someone else is driving 10-15mph over the speed limit.

I hear ya SVT, we have a road here in Philly called Snake Road, but it was closed a couple years ago. It is ridiculous the number of accidents, deaths, etc on this stretch. its a very strange place!!!! but when it was open, fun as hell to drive on.

Infra, where do u live that u made it to Florida in 10+ hrs?

I live in Maine, where this time of the year all the roads with the exception of the highways are full of pot holes and frost heaves, so if I can help it, I don't go there. So there really aren't any good ones here...
