A Car Ride Like No Other

Extracts from this document...


A Car Ride Like No Other It was a warm summer afternoon, not a cloud in the sky and no chance of rain. The sun's light was shining down at full effect, but the heat wasn't overwhelming. It was the perfect day for a relaxing drive. A family friend had dropped her 2008 Mercedes-Benz S550 off at my house in the morning as she was going on vacation. She welcomed me to take it for a ride, but only if I wanted to. Was she kidding me? After a long morning of work, walking outside to the car in my driveway was literally a breath of fresh air. Just glancing at the mesmerizing vehicle parked outside wasn't nearly enough for me to take in its full beauty. ...read more.


When I gently pressed the remote starter, the 5.5 liter V8 engine came to a roaring start. If power could be captured in a sound, it would be this car's engine running. Stepping into the driver's seat I was amazed how the interior is equally as stunning as the outside. Sitting in the soft black leather seat, looking at the eight inch LCD screen in the dashboard and the walnut wood trim, I felt as if I was sitting at a comfortably furnished office desk with a high-speed computer.

The car handled perfectly and rode smoothly even at higher speeds. I knew I was driving the car the way it was meant to be driven. It put me in another place, a very relaxed yet aware state, with a great sense of power and control. It was at that time I truly realized I wasn't driving just any car. I was driving a car that you could drive for no reason, with no destination; you could drive it simply just to drive. Exiting the highway was like coming to the last stretch of a roller-coaster, all of my adrenaline coming down from an incomparable high. I slowly drove back to my house, reluctant to bring the ride to an end. Like landing a plane, I brought the car to a stop in my driveway, put it into park, and exited the most amazing machine I'd ever operated. It was a car ride like no other. ?? ?? ?? ??

    "I wished I never complained about queueing," I thought. I wished I were still in the queue now. As we were about to drop, I heard the screams and roar from the other carriage. Then, seconds later, we were screaming too as our carriage came hurtling down like it was out of control.
