Who is taking this picture? Where are they sitting, who is driving?

When I took my picture, @ 125 mph, I was driving on a long, long straight road and used my cell phone's camera feature since it's small and easy to hold at that speed.

It says 243 MPH on the Digital scream, and then it says 150 MPH on the left dail? What is this about? Is it 243 Kph?

Brucelee: I think I read that the guy's wife took the picture while he drove it. He was just a few miles outside of his break in period when he pushed it up to the top like this.

Now I gotta do it, but it won't be an easy shot to get. The wife will not ride with me while I drive that fast. And I don't think I trust steering with my left knee to shoot the picture.

If you drive that fast and simply tell us so, we will believe it. You have credibility here!
