I drive when I'm really pissed off. It calms me down. I either do that or kill everyone on GTA IV. That usually helps my aggression.

This is the first car I've owned that I ever have taken out just for a drive. Loving this car. This will probably be the first car I mod as well.

Gta4 seems like it would be safer and more therapeutic

Sometimes my wife tells me I need to go and take a drive. I do it quite often (21k on the OD now).

I'm not crazy when I drive pissed. That's the weird thing. The second I get behind the wheel, I'm calm. I live my life one soothing drive at a time. For those 30 minutes or less, I'm free.

You guys make me feel much better. Sometimes I feel like a dork taking this car out twice or more a day, just to drive it. I have to make up destinations sometimes just for an excuse to drive .

I don't commute to work, so I usually take it out during my lunch break and try to just drive it wherever. Its a little hard because I'm in california, and there's usually a lot of traffic, but I love my little town as there's not a whole lot of people and can usually find some sort of back road to have fun on

I've been planning way more trips this year, than any other year ever. I just can't wait to take this car to the beach, on road trips, camping, etc. Love this car the more I drive it.

I even like to drive it in traffic, strange as that sounds, lol. (m/t)

I always go after midnight at least 2 times a week for just one hour drive.
Since highway roads are empty I can rev the car freely without disturbing other people and let the engine cleans itself.
My commute to work is very short in day time.

Even when nobody is watching I am still very happy to drive this car.
The first new car I bought with my own money

My two favourite roads:

I drove 4 miles home from church today, and it's only 1/4 mile away.
