Hope for a sunny warm day soon!

It looks like it's going to be around 45-50 degrees F this weekend in NYC. I hope it's even a little sunny so I can put the top down for the first time this year!

High of about 45 here today in Oregon. It is going to be dry tomorrow, so I am taking the SLK for a drive up to Seattle. It will be the first time out for me this year.

I went for a top down spin last Sunday. This weekend will be even better with central Virginia temps in the low 60s. Fun driving ahead.

Do you ever venture into the city? We lay over at the Roosevelt, near the train station. If so, we may have to schedule a small beer tasting at the nearby Irish pub...

Yeah, it has definitely been very cold all week in Va! This weekend should be much better. Well, this morning is already nice

I drive my slk230 all year around,winter, summer...i did not pay that much money for my baby to sit around in the garage for months just because its cold or a bit snowy ...even though i have a 2nd $3000 car

but I will put the down down when its "really" nice out....

60f is not enjoyable for me to have the top down yet....

but the time will come to shine....;-)
