First Drive of Season

Hey everyone,

I thought I would share that my F430 was finally unleashed today. It has been hibernating all winter long through the most brutal cold we have ever experienced in the Midwest. So at last I took her off the Flat Stoppers and pushed the red start button. VVRRROOOMMMM!!! She came back to life like it was just yesterday that we drove together! I was so impressed! I let her idle for 15 to 20minutes before I drove 3 miles to pickup my son. I took the small roads there and then we took the highway back. She performed flawlessly and sounded just as amazing as I remembered. The trip was too short of course but I did not want to push her as fluids have not been done yet. The weather hopefully will cooperate and continue to get warmer. It has been too long!

Nice! I know how you feel, my 458 was back on license plates after a long hibernation two days ago.
