I drove back to work from lunch today and the ambient temperature as I cruised on 208N was 66F.
Thats right folks! 66F.
Not a typo - 66F

Top down, windows down, music UP.

I am stuck at work, so everyone that can should get out and enjoy this weather "treat".

Doesn't sound like it will last long for us, and we will be back to colder temps this weekend - which is when I would have been able to get the SLK out for some fun. [:(]

Spring/Summer can't get here soon enough for us in the Mid-Atlantic/North East area.

Me too. I don't ever remember enjoying a 65 F day as much as yesterday. I now have 738 miles on my car. I'm starting to push it a bit but I'll wait for the 1000 mile mark before seeing what it will do.

Joyfullheart, Congratulations on finally getting your car. Did you order the air scarf? Spring is just around the corner for both of us.

Leaving work is great everyday, but 64 degrees, sunny and top-down made me wish I lived more than 8 miles from 'the joint". Only problem was avoiding spray from rapidly melting runoff being shot from passing SUV's. Spring cannot come too quickly.

I agree with you. That, along with the salt, is one reason why my new SLK has been sitting in my garage - under the car cover for the past 2 weeks.
I don't mind driving it when it rains, but the salt is still around I am not putting on the road until that's gone.
Luckily, the SLK is not my only car so I can baby it during the winter.

Motzkoman,

Alright, I've got to give it to you. You have nicer weather and even nicer scenery to go with it. No wonder my brother flies there 3 times a month. BTW, your a/v show of your car along with the musice was great[:)]

In the time it took for this thread to run it's course, the 69 degree temperatures Silver Lana celebrated here in the northeast US have turned into 18 degrees, windy, icy and snowy. Man, what a difference a day makes! It's hard to believe I was driving around most of the day yesterday with the top down, no airscarf and no seat heaters! Damn, where the hell is spring?
Anyway, a funny thing happened yesterday. I went to a tag agency(for licenses,registrations,etc.) and the little lot was pretty full. Petrified of a ding I parked across the street at an audio store. I was doing my business and I peeked out and saw some guy walking around my car. He stopped at the back and I thought "Christ, he's taking my plate number!". I was sure he was going to call the cops or something(the parking was supposed to be for that store only). I nervously paced while I was waiting for my stuff to be processed and I look out and see THREE guys around my car. I went into panic mode and walked out the front door and yelled "Do you need me to move it. I didn't know I couldn't park there!" One of the guys looked over and said "It's O.K. We were just checking out your car. That is one nice ride!" I responded "I THINK SO TOO!"
