Not a record run, but a respectable time nonetheless. The average speed would have been better by probably a whole mile-per if I hadn't spent the last fifteen minutes or so in stop-'n'-go early rush-hour traffic on Keystone Avenue. Still, counting check-in times and cab rides, I doubt I could have much bettered my time by flying. And while flying is more fun than driving in general, I doubt a 727 is quite as enjoyably nimble or as responsive to the controls as a 2,800lb Kraut roadster.
Keeping the cruise control on at ten over out on the open highway is a lot more relaxing and doesn't require any head-on-a-swivel behavior, really. I've never attracted a hint of interest from Johnny Law at ten over on the interstate, probably because I practice good lane discipline, leave adequate following distances, and signal my lane changes. In town, I just keep up with the flow of traffic around me; I don't want to stand out from the herd.
The Zed Drei tipped over the 108,000 mile mark about the time I hit I-465.
