The best way to get to school - Click above to watch video after the jump

Some of or earliest memories are of toddling around car shows in awe and thumbing through the local Automart, but there had to have been a moment when we made the switch from growing up as relatively normal children to becoming kids obsessed with the thrash of internal combustion. Maybe it was something like the event in the video posted after the jump.

While most kids are subjected to the brutality of a daily school bus ride, this particular youngster gets chauffeured in style. His dad's ride of choice is a 1996 Porsche 911. Sure, there are more practical family haulers out there, but few scoot along with such prowess.

Dad serves up a quick bout of acceleration and son responds with an appropriate attack of the giggles. This is how you know you're raising your progeny correctly. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself. Thanks for the tip, Maz!

      When your dad has the stripe at 12:00 on the steering wheel, and from day one you're sitting in a Recaro seat.. You will be a car nut!! Great Video

      This is moronic, even from the perspective of a gearhead. Whether you're working on a car, or driving it, the golden rule is always 'Safety first.' Autoblog, have you nothing better than to share such foolishness?

        he's in a recaro car seat. I don't have kids and even I know they're the best around.

        What are you saying? They both had their seat belts buckled up.

        Moronic how? The only possible unsafe things here are the kid being in the front seat (although getting a kid strapped in in the back of a 911 would have been hard) and he might be going a bit fast for the road, but that's hard to tell from the camera angle. A teeny bit risky maybe, but moronic? Come on.

          Mark - Can't reply to yours, so I'll put it here. We aren't talking about airline pilots or fire inspectors here, it's one Dad and one kid. Frankly, go ask them what's risky. Honest ones will tell you, and there is always risk in the choices we make. Some times an elevated reward is worth a slightly elevated risk. Heck, driving the kid to school, period, is risky. We calculate the risk of our actions every time behind the wheel. This Dad traded less than a minute of fun for a very slightly elevated risk of an accident. The grins on both of their faces made it well worth it in my view.

          There's absolutely nothing "possibly unsafe" in riding with a child in the front seat assuming that the child is properly restrained (meets the weight/height requirements and rides in a booster seat, if it is necessary). I.e. there's nothing unsafe in addition to the very idea of using a car.

          ...Imagine if your airline pilot or fire inspector said that.

          "The only possible unsafe things..." Enough said.

      If I had a douch bag looking dad with an old 911 I'd be happy to be driven around too! Guy's shouldn't have soul patches who have kids...

        Really? A clip with a dad and his boy in a classic sports car, having a great time doing something as mundane as going to school, and you have to complain about the appropriateness of facial hairstyle? Dads, Moms, kids... humans everywhere are living great lives precisely because they don't give a crap about petty disapproval from the judgmental. You TOTALLY missed the point. Unclench the sphincter man, you'll get more out of life.

      ... on the second thought wearing a baseball cap inside a car does spell "douchebag".
