Well, this was refreshing, literally. Went out for a quick ride...sunny, hot and humid. No rain clouds that I could see. I'm almost home, about 2 miles away, when the skies turned dark, wind picked up and I can see the rain hammering the road behind from my rear view mirror. I would've made it home in time (legally of course) if the idiot drivers in front of didn't slow down and gawk around at the storm coming at them.

I pulled into an ATM that had a roof. Barely made it as the rain, hail, wind, leaves were swirling around me. I got soaked, my Viper not so much. My visors were soaked but overall the interior was sparred for the most part. Nothing got soaked and a quick toweling took care of it. But, now I have detail my Viper all over again. :mad:

Yes, I had my soft top in the trunk but I refuse to use it. I hate it. I've always hated it. It was worth it for me to get wet vs. dealing with erecting the soft top. :D

Anyone else get caught out there? Some of the hail I saw on the roads was pretty large. This hail I caught in my Viper (litterally just two little *****) was pretty tiny....tiny little *****...I think they were meant for a red viper: :D

Ah, the days of open top motoring :D Reminds me why I sold my AC Cobra rep, No roof, no side windows and English weather :D Got the GTS and never looked back :1up:

See, I actually enjoy situations like this. I think I'm sick. :D The only time I have a hard top on is for the track. ;)

You didn't see any red cars getting hit by hail because they were fast enough to outrun the hail. Only the slow yellow cars were still trying to get home (or to a covered ATM). :smirk:

Hey Mopar Boy, I noticed you even tried to add some blue to get extra speed over at Pittsburgh. Nice try though. :nono:

LOL. When I saw those little ***** of hail in my Viper, I couldn't help but think somewhere Chuck Tator is laughing his *** off. :D

I know what you mean about the open top. I hate that ugly soft top... it was on the car when I bought it... been hanging on my garage wall ever since.
If you have a droid phone then download an app called "radar now". It has saved me a couple of times.

As far as the red vs yellow thing...
hurry up and **** one another of would ya! :****:

Will there EVER be peace between Red and Yellow?!? Can't we all just get along? :D


Not as long as there is red owners that think their car is better than a yellow one! :rolaugh:

Once they wake up and smell the coffee and clue in to the fact that yellow is better, then maybe we can talk. :D



And Mike,

Yeah OK! :lamo:

A nice bed time story.....Once upon a time there were three (3) little "PINKS."

Nothing like a good cyber "cat" (meow) fight.
