I feel a little sorry for all you younger drivers!

I had a drive from Watford to Oban (West coast of Scotland) many years ago, before speed cameras. All I had to do was watch out for patrol cars. I was in a 3 litre Ford Granada (not mine) and I tried 3 times to do 100 miles in 1 hour whilst on the M1 and M6 fastest average I got was 97mph! I was cruising at 105-110.

Also it was a lot quieter then on the motorways. It took me 2 hours and twenty minutes from Watford to Preston.
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
