The Perfect Night

Times have been pretty stressful lately due to a crazy workload in the office, and the efforts made to complete an MBA degree have compounded the stress. It seems a drive in the 930 was the medicine the doctor ordered. As I opened the garage door and stared at the blue beast resting, a feeling of excitement developed. Closing the "bank vault" door and starting at this raw monster always brings joy. The mission for the evening was to find an open road where traffic and stoplights were few. This mission was accomplished as the wife and I proceeded down a rural road with a beautiful sky and a rewarding breeze felt. The car was running great and the music from the engine intoxicating. I looked out the window and saw deer feeding in the fields, and a beautiful horse being trained by its owner. At this time, the sun was setting and I had this feeling that life doesn't get any better than this. At this very moment a feeling of utopia sank in as I'm driving my dream car with the woman I love. Life doesn't get any better than this as we disappear with the sun.

Nice story. Glad to hear it ended well!

Have to admit, I was waiting for a 'bad ending' as I read the post...

Fortunately I didn't hit the deer, but they can certainly be a problem in the evening.

is that prussian? Hard to tell as the prussian color changes under different lights...I don't like mine as much in the bright sun, but love the color in any other light condition.

I was told by the previous owner the car is Artis blue but I'm not 100% as the COA indicates Color to Sample. The car has a dark blue color when out of the sunlight, and a hint of purple in certain lighting conditions.

the hint of purple in sunlight makes me think it is prussian, as that is what I see in mine...doesn't really matter, beautiful car....
