I go driving for fun 3-4 times a week. Traffic on our I-25 isn't too bad so I try zipping around in that for a while, and I also have some pretty sick mountain roads to go drive. They are like the ones you see in commercials for sports cars all windy and everything. it's baddass. I try to make sure that every time the road will let me I'm up over 100mph. I love to drive! :drive:

I'm in the car enough going to and from work/other places. I don't really get in the car just to get in the car. Maybe after I move and I live closer to work, I'll go for liesure drives, but right now I can get all the driving I want just by going through daily tasks.

Well since I don't drive my car anyways, everytime I am behind the wheel it is enjoyment.

Speaking of which, I just drove it for the first time in 4 months.

*edit*
I moved this to the Poll section, I hope that is where you want it.

Every night when it gets dark I take 30minutes just to chill out and drive. If I dont feel like driving than I go outside to the car and listen to some music...Wait, who voted never? Thats bullshit :mad:

I can say that at the end of a work day I can't wait to get in my Lantra, turn the music on and ride home. Usually I try to take the lantra out on joy rides during the weekend.....you know head out somewhere w/the windows down and cruise.

I could walk to work everyday, but I choose to drive. I look forward to it every afternoon and evening. It's not purely for enjoyment, but I sure don't have to do it, I just love being in my car and wasting gas. I guess I'm just naughty. :)

There are some good roads in CO for sure. I do a sidejob in the mountains, so I def whip in and out of the canyons. Gotta love windy roads!

I don't do this too often anymore but I guess it's about once a month. I'll drive out to this farm road and push the car pretty hard through the twisties. There's this one hard left turn you're supposed to take at 15 mph. But it's slightly banked which helps. And since I can see way ahead I kinda drifted the car around the corner at 40 mph once. I pushed it hard enough for the back end to step out when I let off the gas and then I re-applied the gas to straighten it back out. That was fun.

It was also a good area to take some pictures. It's where I took these older pictures with my last set of wheels.
