Man Arrested For Driving 150 MPH In Buick
GRAPEVINE (CBS 11 / TXA 21)

A man is behind bars after Grapevine police say they stopped him driving 150 m.p.h.

At about 3 a.m. Friday, police say, an officer was driving on Highway 114 near DFW Airport when a Buick flew past him.

Police say the Buick was going so fast that it took the officer some time to catch up. When he did, he clocked the car going 150 m.p.h.

The speed limit on that stretch of 114 is 60, which would mean the car was driving 2 and a half times the speed limit.

The officer pulled over the Buick and arrested the driver, 37-year-old Ismael Esparza.

Police had the Buick towed. Esparza was still in jail as of noon Friday.

There's no word yet on what model of Buick Esparza was driving.

Re: Man Arrested For Going 150 MPH In A Buick

My guess: T-Type - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


GNX made automotive history as "the fastest American car in 1987." (and 1988-9 as well.) The GNX recorded a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds, and its "fast car" reputation led many people to dub it "the Regal from hell." In addition, its turbocharged V6 made it an attractive alternative to its similar-bodied V8-powered siblings, such as the Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS and Oldsmobile 442 (neither of which had the turbocharger available to them).

Re: Man Arrested For Going 150 MPH In A Buick

Yea....the Grand Nationals were badass!! Still are, even if the look of em are cheap now. Funny thing is, just window shopping around a few years ago, you could find em all day long for 11-13k( the nice, well taken care of ones)........since the last fast & furious movie, you can't find a ****ty beat-up one for that price. I almost bought one back in 91, but at 19yrs old, the insurace was gonna be more than the damned payment, so I went with an 89 s-10 4x4

Yeah those GNX are bad *** (so I've heard). On my local forum they recently had a big cruise and had a GNX do a flyby by them, there's a video somewhere there.

Re: Man Arrested For Going 150 MPH In A Buick

My buick would have been able to reach at least 140, but I wouldn't ever try it.. I've seen several FWD GSs reach 110-140, and a small handful trap 120+ in the 1/4, I would say they'd be able to reach 150 no problem

Just sayin..

Sucks he got caught, how the heck did the cop catch up?
