The CAM Journal – 194.8 mph

by Mustangjohnny

194.8mph in a Monte CarloThe title for this month’s article is the fastest speed I have traveled in an automobile. High speed auto travel has always fascinated me. From when I was a wide eyed 10 year old car nut, to now as I push the envelope with my car on track.

–noun
an act of bending the knee or touching it to the ground in reverence or worship.

Nothing is quite so striking as a Ferrari. Especially when the world is used to Camry’s and Minivans. I was reminded of this as I ran into(not literally) a childhood dream car over the weekend. It was a Red on Red Ferrari Testarossa. It has the updated 512TR wheels, but it was classic Testarossa. And I was lusting after it in spite of it’s many flaws. (more…)
