How about your best shot depicting true-honest to goodness speed? The only requirement is that the shot must convey the feeling of fast motion, which in many respects would probably favor some blur as opposed to a perfect freeze frame. Here's my attempt. It's called "Bubba at the bog."
Bubba was mud-boggin at a local track.
N70, 28-105 Nikkor, Fuji Superia Xtra-400, command dial manuevered to give me less than 125th of a second (where exactly I can't remember). Motion panned with the vehicle, while I was braced against a fence. This was probably attempt number 10 of ten attempts. All others were blurred to smithereens.

Shoot everything f/16 at a 100 and let the lab boys worry about it.
