Smile Rainy day run

Rain doesn't stop play in a SLK! Undeterred by the inclement weather, I took Mabel out yesterday and tried out a few different camera positions over the same wee run.

Great video Davie, and I like the fact that you left the engine noise in, even though you added the music!

... am I the only person that flinched as the kerb approached at around 2min 30sec?

Great run. Funny how you look like you are traveling faster with the rear view. Well to me anyway.

Thanks for the comments all, glad you liked it.
I should point out that no rims were curbed during the making of this vid , and that the rear view only appears to be quicker due to the fact the forward facing shots appear slower
