If you spend most of your time driving on crowded city freeways at 60 mph then 120 seems fast, but I've pushed through 5 States with 80 mph posted limits. Now to me 100 is no big deal.
I have a fairly new Mustang, topped 110 a couple of times, didn't feel like it was near edge of control, but traffic and possibility of LEO's really didn't suggest faster would be acceptable.
Other times I was a passenger in a BMW one morning several hours after attending an F1 race that we didn't get below 90 mph from Austin to Dallas, and spent most of the ride 100+. I also owned V8 Mercedes that in about 4 seconds would accelerate from 75 to 100. Discovered it was chipped at 130. Also driven a Super Late Model at a local racetrack. All this type of experience has lowered the excitement level, makes me more analytical about the capability of the vehicle I'm driving.
