    I didn't begin to drive until

    after I turned 18 which was only because I had to start going to college. My parents would drive me to high school and anywhere I wanted to go. Luckily they never said no. I enjoy driving, except I hate paying for gas. It just gets used up weekly and can't be reused. I do enjoy...

    I absolutely love my loud stereo in my car.

    ..music is so calming and because there is so many kinds, its easy to find a song that fits the mood. So need a to take a trip so I can just get lost in some.

    Driving today with my 'mix tape' spotify

    I jam out in my car. I got christian rap

    knocking hard. My car came with the Bose concert edition stereo system and it just gets the spirit jumping in my car. Even before the christian tunes became a staple in my car, it was Texas everything. The music really calms me because I only listen to music I can relate too. My...

    It always makes me laugh

    when I stop at a traffic light, and people look at me strangely when I have Rob Zombie blasting through my speakers.

    A few weeks back I've bought my first car yay.

    A opel astra h gtc 1.6 Coupe and I'm in love with it. There's nothing better than getting into my car, connecting the aux cable and turn on my favorite music for my car ride. Now if only gas wouldn't be that damn expensive.

    I love to sing and dance

    while driving. lol. People driving by me either usually give me weird looks because I am completely of pitch probably or laugh and join in. I find it so much fun to just drive around windows down- it relaxes me. Is that weird? OHH Well if it does!

    You know when you stop at a red light

    and in your peripheral vision you see quite some motion in the vehicle next to you and hear quite the expressive music, so you casually glance over, to see a young lady being completely dramatic? Sometimes I wish I was the one glancing over at the weirdo, but this time, I was...

    Someone once asked me.

    ..... Is your accelerator somehow connected to the volume on the stereo???? Truth is i often have moments when the only way to release tension is to crank it up & just drive!! I love it!! :-)

    point in our pasts. I was riding in my car, and a song came on the radio that took me right back to last summer. A time when I was falling in love. Everything looked brighter, and everything tasted richer. My heart started to race as I was shipped back to that place, and a...

    When I get in the car I follow a certain ritual.

    Firstly put the stereo on and choose my music and volume. Then light a cigarette followed by the safety belt and set off. The feeling of freedom when listening to music and just driving by myself feels great. Music is such a powerful tool. The best therapy out there.

    Okay, I have a confession.

    .. Nothing gets me going in the morning quite like blasting the most atrocious pop music in my car on the way to work! The lyrics are typically not too inventive, and the beats are repetitive, lacking distinguishable contrast, but maybe that's why I love it. I'm able to drown...
