you drove your first 55? How did you feel?

My first time was about 6 wk ago and I bought it about 3 wk ago. FIrst time I heard that growl, I knew this one was for me.

And then when i bought it, for about 5 days straight I went out for a drive with no particular place to go. Everytime when I parked her in the garage and came in the house, I had smiles ear to ear.

I knew how wonderful I felt after those spirited hours. Just fantastic.

Well, yesterday my son had his first chance to drive Schwarzie. I now know how I looked when I came home after a drive.

He is always hesistant when he drives one of my cars (especially when I'm with him) but this time I said "open her up".

And he did.

Eventually I had to tell him to slow down as he would not only be arrested and put in the hooskow (let alone a huge fine), I would lose poor Schwarzie for a week. Up here, stunt driving (which is only 40 kph over the limit) will get you a huge fine and a possible jail term as well as them seizing the vehicle for a week.

I was going to put down the speeds but suffice it to say "well, he was driving a 55--you what I mean ;) " and he didn't break the tires loose once. He didn't need to.

This is some car.

The whole time he was driving he was giggling like a school girl :wink:.

Now I know :grin:

Doctors 0ne mile away. Distance travelled per visit? 50 miles.

Shops 0ne mile away, Route travelled 20 mile.

It's not that they are heavy on fuel, it's doing more travel that makes them expensive.

You can't get in one and do a short trip. It's just not possible.

It's like listening to your favourite music track.
You can't cut out after a few bars.
You have to listen to the end.

And the AMG has an AWESOME sound track.

Unless they bin the car

You NEVER meet an unhappy 55 owner.
