      I would say my Focus with a tune, cai, and an additional fuel cell. Absolute anonymity, comfortable seats, and it doesn't have to kill itself to keep triple digit speeds. Running at those speeds you would probably be able to get better than 20 mpg, so figure carrying 30 gallons of fuel and you can easily outlast the driver's bladder. I would imagine that you might run into some issues with liveabilty due to turning about 4k at speed, so I wouldn't try it twice on the same engine.

      My record on the car is 421 miles in 7 hours. Average speed of 60 mph, no stops from leaving till I pulled into the school lot. And that was largely obeying the speed limit, probably 3-5 over in in 55 zones.

      focus and confertable seats are not words i would use in the same sentance lol

      i think the seats are horrible and they wreck my back something fierce
