I was on I-79 Southbound doing about 81 mph when my glass is shattered and my car is nearly thrown off of the road. I look out of my now broken side window and see a 747 right next to me. The pilot was giving me the thumbs up, I would have reciprocated but I was busy trying to stop the bleeding in my right ear. I beeped three times and we were off. I instantly pulled about 2 car lengths on him but he started catching up and at about 300 mph he was 1.5 car lengths on me. He seemed surprised that a Cadillac could keep up with him.

It couldn't be a 747 since you were heading south and they only land east-west. Again, you're embelishing your stories.

I'll bet is was only a Bombadier out of Cleveland.

You could probably take him with a 100 shot of the NOS :canttalk:

May have to slightly expand your garage to fit that baby in there!

Some people can't even detect sardonic humor.

Nope, never even heard of the site before. I see that you are a fan of Curb though, I watch at least an episode of that show every day, I own all but season 1. I love that show and Arrested Development, the only comedic television shows that are worth watching in my opinion.

Hey, Chad... I just noticed how old you look in that portrait. Your profile says your 20 years old as of May 15, 2007. :lol:

That's some funny shit.

I read a story of an acual race of car versus plane, but the plane was a little Cesna 150-something only good to about 127, and the car was a brand new Pontiac, a Catalina, I think, supposedly capable of 135, so the guy thinks he'll beat the plane. Sure enough, he does. Crests a hill and sees the police waiting for him; the plane was doing speed traps! They were going to give him just your typical "85-in-a-65" business, but he asked for the full 135, as he wanted proof of his racing, and beating, an aeroplane. This was in Car & Driver about a year or so ago.
