We took the convertible on a drive here. Even though it was a cloudy day, we still had fun. The speed limit averages 40 mph, but I would not have wanted to go faster anyway. This is a great drive.

Actually a well paved state highway but speed limit is averages 40 mph. Old homes, theaters , beaches close to road. Original road on Cape Cod before rte 6. Great ride in a sports car in summer, smooth slow curves.
