That is a good point.  Although I will agree with Scott and say that my car
is far from an aerodynamic wonder, but I think John made a point about the
rear axle, in 84 the Mustang that I own came with a 3.45 rear axle. 
Hmmmmm..... I don't think that I could ever do 142mph (on an open race
track (I like speed but I am not stupid)) but I think that I can do
~130mph.  Does this sound plausible?
