I know a couple of people who have 150+ degree curves, and a handful who have had 100+. You might be interested to look at the thread Linda posted, titled "Pretty Inspiring" - it has a link to an article about a girl with a 160 degree curve.

Thankfully, curves >100 degrees have become relatively rare in the U.S. That's not the case in many under-developed countries. Here is a link that might be of interest:

Dr. Boachie frequently shows case studies of patients he treats in Ghana and Barbados. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything with a quick search. If you're really motivated to see some of the most extreme cases, I'm sure you can find something.
