Per Expat's Request

Here is the same exact drive today.  I opted not to do it in the Impala with the top down, however.  Turn on the sound and sing along: "Heated seats, yeah, heated seats!"

Re: Per Expat's Request

Going to give you a 5 out of ten for that. It woulda been a zero for wussing out on the top down, but you get 50% for the level of risk averseness.

Moi, I woulda done that with a Landrover with 4 wheel solid mechanical drive, but a 2 rear wheel drive car... Nah.

In days gone by I have exibited levels of insanity in the cold I will never repeat. Admittedly I didn't figure on the change in altitude, and being in the country would cause the snow to increase as much as it did....Hey I woz young.

I rode on a piddling Honda 90 a little bike I thought would be ok for sodding about on the cheap in London, but very quickly realised it was a heap of crap and traded it in for a 250.... it was on one of those little scooterette things from London, out to Ashford in Kent, I dunno, maybe 60 or 70 miles. Almost one of the stupedest things I have done. Reaching half way, bloody cold, do I continue, or turn back... Yeah, I continued.

Oh well, that takes you down to 2.5 out of ten, less risk, no top off, hell you could have showed us something off the TV... LoL.

Well, my 52 year old convertible, my father's one indulgence, is winterized, covered and sitting in storage until spring.  It won't come out of hibernation until April.  Sorry.

Quite right. I bet its in better shape than my pain in the arse Rav4, that Slice besmirched last year. (Notice how bitter we can get when people say bad things about our vehicles)  smile
