Driving a 550 for the first time!

Yesterday, my 19-year-old son got to drive my 550 for the first time. He had never driven a car, which had any speed. He told me that speed is stupid and not needed. Acceleration is OK to get on the freeway but other than that has no use.

We drove around the area. Finally we came to a straight with no traffic. I had him stop. He started to go slow in first. I told him to punch it. He did. I had to tell him to go to second as it was whining out. Into second and away we when. Finally I said, “Slow down” which he did.

Guess what? He liked the speed and the acceleration.

That is my job as a father. One must teach the children the need for speed and acceleration. I hope I did not create a monster.

True, how true.

But he does like it. Maybe he will want a Ferrari in the future, hopefully!
