There's something about going really, really, ridiculously fast that instantly transports you into a child-like state where everything is awesome. But does that exhilarating feeling need to drain your bank account? I challenge you speed freaks to find the car on eBay with the highest top speed, under $15k. GO!

Here are the rules:

  • Selections aren't limited to simply 'cars' (kit cars, trucks, and military/commercial vehicles included)
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $15,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You're encouraged to add modifications, as long as it doesn't go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car has the highest top speed under $15,000.

Now go find a car that will give a Bugatti Veyron a run for its money.

I'll arrange the best selections afterwards. You have until the end of the weekend.
