    OT: Dozen elite sports cars clocked at 'well over' 100 mph on I-394 Mpls

    The cars included Lamborghinis, a McLaren, a Ferrari, a Maserati and other exotic makes.
    Okay, guys, confess, which of you did this? Maybe treating I-393 like the A****ahn wasn't such a good idea?

    Edit: Hmmm, German freeway is censored.

    Any thought of joining them? “I was driving a silver Honda Civic,” the man said. “I actually thought of catching up with them for a bit, but my girlfriend gets mad at me when I do things like that.”

    The last quote sounds more like me. I would think about trying to catch them but Mrs. Velo would quickly bring me back to earth.

    Um, there was a Porsche and an Audi listed in the article. Who'd you borrow your second vehicle to?

    As a kid, Adrienne Barbeau's outfit was the only plot I thought this flick needed.

    I've driven that stretch of highway quite a bit and finding enough room to hit a 110 is totally asking for it. Now on 494, I've seen cars do that often, but it's usually some rice burner.
