ahhhhh thats kids play for those who dont drive LOL

that piece of FL turnpike is boring as a mofo...just for fun i topped out a sebring convertible on it for about 2.5 hours....made it to west palm beach in record time..the thing is i wasnt trying to go to w palm beach, i was on my way to miami...Along with about 20 other people, i was clocked on the highway by chopper LOL...i seen troopers lined up pulling everyone over, and i just pulled over and waited....a cute florida trooper heard my no sleep, missed my flight to miami story n let me off with a no seat belt ticket...

I've been on 3 of those, and I agree with the description. The Florida turnpike is most fun when a isolated Spring thunderstorm rolls through and dumps 2 inches of standing water on the freeway in less than a minute. The deluge continues for 15 minutes before it stops, the skies clear and it's beautiful, sunny and 85 degrees for the rest of the day.
