Jalopnik has the crazy, and crazy insane, story of Ed Bolian, who went cross-continent in 28 hours and 50 minutes, shattering the old coast-to-coast record by 2 hours. Reserve fuel tanks, radar detectors (multiple) and radar jamming, GPS, lead cars…. over 2,800 miles with an *average* speed of 98 mph in a Mercedes CS55. Max speed was 158 and his moving average was 100 mph; he got stuck in Manhattan traffic on a Saturday night. But they still made St. freaking Louis before sun-up.

Unfortunately, WordPress won’t let me embed video without giving them a kidney, so you’ll have to click through to watch the short documentary. It is worth it.
