Smile cold night driving

Just got back from a squirt from mornington over to warbuton and back again. (took good old mum out to dinner) Just was enjoying a 'spirited' drive back home. dont you just love those cold evenings when the air is thick and cold and the engine just seems to rev so freely and smooth. i enjoy driving at the best of times but the dense air seems to a a few xtra KW's, plus there's a fair bit of twisty stuff as well. Love hooking into a series of left, right hand bends, fun stuff. Was thinking about this with a grin and thought id share it with you all.

What about the cold mornings! Wipe the layer of ice of the windscreen and enjoy the early morning drive to work with those extra KW. Cant think of a better way to start work.
