Someone with too much time on their hands should pour all these data in an excel sheet and make nice comprehensive graphs! :p

flydiscovery, where are you?

Holy fuck, someone's actually attempted that? Why?, how? and was it combined with 'You Bastard'?
I thought no one else would achieve that...

Wait, when the hell was Long Arm of the Claw? Are we talking stealing the actual car or just the image of one?

Many things, none of them working.
The 60mph over one was quite hard to achieve and happened on the Autobahn. Went flatout with the A6 on an unrestricted part of the Autobahn and saw the signs fly by: 120 100 80 60 (I was still doing ~175km/h at the last sign because it happened quite quickly :D)
Pffffh. The main artery off which I live is 40mph and exceedingly rural. Draw your own conclusions.

I'm assuming that this applies to every vehicle, not just cars. I counted my motorcycle top speed.

I can add "Son I am Disappoint" and "Grand Theft Brotto" to the list. I stole my friend's car while he was getting the photos taken on his wedding day. I took it and had it detailed and brought it back. His wife still thanks me for that and she considers it the best wedding gift they got (yeah, his car was that bad).

Unstoppable

What Gavity? - Drive a car with no power for more than a mile through mixed terrain.

I have done that on my bicycle... (and yes, with a car too, and that one wasn't in a living street ;)) :p :D

None anymore...


So, that's 13...

Name Your Price: Have someone offer to buy your vehicle when it isn't for sale
Funny enough, this did happen to me about a month ago in a parking lot: I got out of my car (a '94 Audi 80 B4 with the most common 4-cylinder engine, a dent in the left wing and scratches all over it, so not exactly rare and/or desirable), a guy stopped, wound down the window and asked me if he could buy my car... :blink:

I'm not counting the numerous "business cards" stuck to the window asking "if you want to sell your car, please give me a call at xxx blablabla"...
