Re: [Chrysler300] Area 51

Right. That was claimed by one pilot to have been closer to 2700 mph in the interest of shaking a missile off his tail, and was not official.

Scooped by Wikipedia! The official SR-71 record was set in 1976 at 2193 mph, or 36.55 miles a minute, or 1.64 seconds per mile.

So - the SR-71 was a tad quicker than a 300 SRT.

Hi all:
I have had the pleasure of knowing 2 "space" travelers in my lifetime.  First, Joe Walker, who was an X-15 test pilot who unfortunately died when his chase plane collided with the XB-70 Valkyrie delta wing bomber over the Antelope Valley in 1967.
Secondly, I first met Tony Bevacqua at a 300 Meet in Phoenix many years ago.  We shared a room for the Meet and I cannot think of a better experience I had than chatting with him about his exploits in U-2's and SR-71's.  Hopefully, for their enjoyment, Tony will someday give the Meet attendees an overview of his exciting career.  He never would tell me what the top speed is of the SR-71!!
GO TONY!!!  Thanks for being a good friend.
