Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry, "Hey buddy, have you got a dime?"
And the beat goes on, the beat goes on...

ke ke ke , that happened to me yesterday ! I found that if you drive @ 70kph the wind moves the rain very well across the top needless to say everyone drove 60kph ......
My biggest fear is that my wife sells my cars for what i told her they cost !!

IMPI and I have been debating whether the pic is sign of commitment or bad planning :lol:

Yes, I've been flooded in the buggy too numerous times, and I always found mysself with this catch-22:

a. Drive faster - exposure to rain more harsh, but quicker home

b. Drive slower - exposure to rain more moderate, but journey home longer...

That's just D00S planning! who builds a convertible replica and DOESN'T have a roof made?
That car will never be the same again.

SNAP :D

Drove my Spyder faster to avoid getting wet, rain was so bad the aquaplaning forced me to slow down on the way back from Vereeniging on the R59 a few years ago :bn:
