It's alright IDK if the testing there is worth anything but it's cool to see them beat those cars like that.

Thanks for sharing! I LOL'ed at the Town Car going 60mph in reverse. It's scary to think that a ton of old people drive those cars too! Although I guess it also explains why the government uses them (along with the Crown Vics) when it comes to evasive maneuvers.

I enjoyed watching it, I just wish there was more. And I can't believe the town car can 60 in reverse. I guess a mustang should be able to do the same but faster lol. Oh and can you imagine a little old lady flying across the parking lot in reverse at 60 mph cause she hit the wrong gear and pedal or just plain got confused? Scary when you think about it.

But would you really have to try that hard?! Just like America; take something automotive and cool and make it less entertaining!
