It was a beautiful day!

Had a great drive today on the backroads through the forests near my house.
Sun was shining, forest in autumn colors, car handled like a dream....what more can a man ask for!
The roads were dry so I was even able to push her at some points, although never beyond the legal limits, of course...

Today was a gift as I had expected her to be in hibernation by now. Any of you guys got out to drive today?

Few pics I took today, hope you like.

Hey Gus,
Thanks. No, that wasn't Amsterdamse Bos, but the forest where I live in the middle of Holland.

Jeroen- Sounds like a great day and your car looks really nice. Those 19" mods really work on your 550.

Your November drive and great pictures, Jereon, make me yearn for my bluebird even more. Maybe I should have already collected her and not be waiting until March. Oh well the good things in life are worth waiting for! Your black beauty is looking magnificent, the 550 Maranello is definitely aging very well in classic Pinifarina style.

Thanks all!

@Taz- they do, don't they? I am really happy with them, they make the car a little more aggressive without it becoming too much.
@Vitalone- it will be a long wait until March...but it'll be worth the wait!

Jeroen- Who needs a garage?

Crud, they edited her out of the thread. Just as well to keep Ryan from having his eyes surgically removed with fingernails.
