Route 66 News

Don’t try this at home, kids

The fellows at Carpix.net tested a 2007 Ford Shelby Mustang by flooring it for a 9.5-mile stretch of Route 66 from the the ruins of the Roadrunner restaurant to Roy’s in Amboy, Calif.

Reported average speed was 141 mph. See for yourself:

I wouldn’t have tried it. The Mother Road out in the Mojave Desert is notoriously bumpy, especially since the rainy spring of 2005. One chuckhole could spell disaster at 140 mph.

And the girl in the video probably said at one point: “Can I take these damned heels off now?”

    So they made it in just over 4 minutes. But what happened to the girl in the heels?? I hate movies where the ending leaves you guessing.
