Funny you say that. We often share the facility with a company testing electric cars and they needed our end of the 7000 foot runway. The other day they were reaching speeds of 200 mph out there testing if a popped hood latch would result in the hood flying off.

I can confirm that a fiberglass hood on a '69 Bronco will fly up into the windshield when you reach about 50mph, destroying the windshield and the hood hinges in the process. Just one good reason to always have at least one ratchet strap with you.
