I thought you Hyundai folks would want to know that a new speed record has
been set on one of our freeways here in Arizona. Photo radar in Scottsdale
clocked a guy doing 147 mph , or for you metric people 235 kph. This was on
our outer loop freeway but is still in town. All the cops said is that it
was a rented Hyundai. I saw the news clip and it was blurry but it looked
to me to be a new Sonata. The guy was late for work was reason for the
speed.

Scott, it was probably an Azera, not a Sonata. The Sonata V6 top speed is
only 137 MPH as tested by several auto magazines. Although if memory
serves, an LX was tested by each magazine. Maybe the GLS is a little
lighter, but I can't imagine a 10 MPH gain.

Photo radar is currently illegal in NJ. The legislature is working to
change that. Although I think a lot of people would finally slow down a
little (a good thing), I tend more to think it is an invasion of privacy
and just one more big brother thing we have to all worry about.

In 1995 a Hyundai Elantra set a record for driving up the Mount
Washington Auto Road that stood until an Audi Quattro beat it in 1998.

Rodney King supposedly had his '87 Excel going in excess of 100mph
shortly before he met the CA Highway Patrol.

No, the reason was that the guy is a blooming idiot with a IQ less than
room temperature.

I know from stupid, but personal experience that an '90 Excel is
capable of excess of 100mph. It was a long time ago, so I don't
remember the exact speed.
