Early morning drive.

It's 8 am I slept 8 hours, mood is perfect and the weather is overcast with cold breeze and temperatures of 20-21 degrees c. What better way to wake to the sound of a v8 an a long topdown drive for early breakfast.

As it is a weekend here I am probably only person awake and I've been calling nearly everyone I have on my phonebook(friends) that are probably still sleeping.

I was the only AMG in the parking lot, mostly the others were two Corvette's (C6 convertible, Stingray), LP560-4 Gallardo, Carrera GT and a Cayman R. The parking lot was filled with bikes.

Anyways here are some pictures, love my car and will continue to enjoy(god willing) it till the day I die.

Aaaahhhh Breakfast!

I agree that early morning is a great time to take the SLK out for some exercise. A solitary breakfast provides for calm and thoughtfulness.....consider yourself a lucky man!

I love breakfasts, I'm a morning person. I hate night drives, you cant spot the police when driving fast as easy as it is in the morning.

Simply stunning!!! Looks like you had a great morning. I'm not a morning person by default, I rather sleep in but I do like to drive early in the morning to work b/c there are no traffic and leave early for the same reason.

For sure this is going to be my last black car.

The car is peaking out of the garage it rains and already half of the car is dirty (rain with dust particles).

Sorry to hear you had to work today...without even nice weather in San Diego.

Had a great drive and breakfast with my 6 year old. Great idea Mo!

This is the way to start a new day. By the way, how is the gas prices there in your area? It seems the gas price here is cripping up again in the USA.

Was like $.79 per gallon back in July when I was planning my trip down - or so my friends were saying!
