If mine got to 106 stuff would be flying off the thing, and the inside would just be a pile of debris on the floor. But if he wants to really be RVing, I want to see it done with the wife standing at the sink making coffee, and a kid in the bedroom watching TV.

Are those supposed to be flames on the side, or a slice of cheese pizza?

That's one of those mid 70's GMC's which were front wheel drive (using a Toronado transaxle) and used Oldsmobile 455's (later ones used Olds 403's). Wonder if it had the Olds motor when it set the record?

I've had mine to 85 (it's OK, I was drunk) and it's pretty quiet and solid feeling. The problem is if you lose a tire at that speed. Spit and snot would be flying.

Most pimp-est RV ever... featured on Top Gear, and I think the little "coo-pay" added about 100g's to the already staggering price-tag.

Still... noice!
