took the beast out in the cold today

So it's been in the 20's + 30's here in Northern GA. so I haven't been driving the beast much . Cold worn Continental's makes the beast a handful to drive . Our youngest son that lives in Orlando has visited for a week but is flying back tonight.

So I told him that I'm warming up the Porsche do you want to go for a ride ? He said sure and off we went . Did so many power slides around tight GA. mountain roads we were having a ball . I still get a thrill every time I drive the beast but today was extra special , because of some father/son bonding . When we got home the smile on his face said it all...........Andrew enjoyed the ride and understands why " there is no substitute " .
