Re: Barbie Mustang @ 72 mph....

As long as there are internal combustion engines, we'll try to make it go faster. I met a guy in Jackson Lake Georgia that had set the worlds record at Bonneville on a Snapper lawn mower. Bobby Cleveland is just a good ol' boy from central Georgia who likes to race lawn mowers:

And then a few years later, it what looks like a cheat to me, Honda came along and broke Bobby's record. I say cheat because Bobby went 96 mph on a belt drive Snapper. That Honda looks like a motorcycle engine in a lawn mower looking thing:
