What are you doing with a 147 in OZ land then? Ford Falcons are very comfortable driving at 110kmh. I thought 147 is designed to be driven above 147kmh, hahahahah!
But seriously, it is addictive once you got used to the speed. Thanks for the reminder, guess I have to slow down a little, for safety's sake, and for my license's sake.

I blew up a Ford Sierra travelling South from Carlisle in the UK(mid 1980's) -speed 160 kph
I have an Alfa because its a fun "toy".
If I wanted a "real" car then probably get a Holden Commodore SS or HSV version eek! eek! eek!
(only joking - well I think I am
The other day I came around a sharp corner with 2 Holden Commodore HSV V8's on my tail. One second they were behind me. The next they blasted past me and left me looking rather stupid.
The last time something like this happened I was doing 140 kph in the UK and a Ferrari followed me for a couple of kms and them passed me like I was stopped
