Just got back from a trip to Frankfurt airport to drop the man off (he's going Stateside for 10 days.)
It's about a one way 100 mile drive from home.
So.. my fellow passionistas...... picture it -
Pretty good weather.
New winter tyres.
No speed limit
If that's not enough, now add an SLK into the mix.
*sigh* the sheer pleasure of it.
I have never driven with a bigger - permanent - grin on my face. My face was actually hurting when I got home because I had been smiling so much.
Didn't want to push it past 210 (km/h!) because of the winter tyres, but I found it hard not to.
Now.... in my time, I've had a classic 1969 MG Midget, a Mazda MX5 ( Miata? across the pond), a new MGF and an M3 - and let me tell you....NOTHING compares the the SLK.
AND!!!! My baby's only a 1999 SLK 230 with 193hp and I still get that rush. Golly only knows how you all feel with your AMGs!!! I'd be driving everywhere at break-neck speed!
It's still a very strange feeling when I drive past a police car doing those kinds of speeds and not having to brake! Although about 50% of the Autobahn does have speed limits.
So....really wanted to just appreciate with you all. Not everyone gets it, do they?
