Amen! I lived in Germany for 7 years and would drive out of my way to hit the Autobahn on the way to work. Here's a challenge, see how many countries you can drive in in 12 hours! You should also check out the Nurburgring. They have a 13 mile road course that I used to pay $10.00 a lap on Sundays. Used to have a 82 GTI that I disasembled the engine and mailed it to California to have worked. That was 1 fast little car. I had to pull out the rev limiter in the distributor to get it to turn over 6,500 RPM. One time on the way back from Italy I ran that built 1.8 liter at 6,800 RPM for 2 hours straight. What a blast. Have video somewhere of the tach maxed out at 7,000 RPM and the speedo at 205 K or 123 mph!

I had to rent cars and often did when I wanted to go over 130 MPH.

Yes, not by much, like maybe 102 or something. This car runs out of torque before it runs out of gear.

Ironically I have never been over 100 in any car I have owned . . . motorcycle on the other hand well . . . . at least a motorcycle stops a lot quicker than a car at those higher speeds.
Lucky for me, they don't have those cameras on the highway yet...

Oh, I get it, no signs!
Ok, so because I see no signs it means drive as fast as it will go...
Or does it?
But at least you can ask Montana folks, and you might hear them talk about it.
Well 100 mph in a Yaris isn't as safe as it would be in a Porsche 911 turbo. That is if a Yaris will even do 100 mph...
