    I wish they'd just let the cars do what the speedo says it will. Seems like false advertisement to me.

    From the story...

    “They tried to catch up. They weren’t doing it,” Cooper said. “They couldn’t get close enough.” Troopers couldn’t read the car’s license plate.

    The Colorado State Patrol early Friday gave up chasing a driver in a car that could be identified only as a dark-colored, older-model Mustang when it hit 150 m.p.h.

    Older model mustang...

    Fox Body?
    Farrah Faucet Pinto model?
    Eleanor?

    Who knows?

    If it was late model, it would have been "Electronically Limited" to 155.
