Default A long day in the seat

Had a friend visiting from O.S on the weekend.. let's do a day trip down the great ocean road... Started sunny roof down, processed to overcast... Then drizzle .. then the biggest 1 hour long downpour I've driven through in years.... also first time I've had the soft top up in 4 years..... Wow was that hard to stretch out and get it clamped on after that long... 590 kms in the day...368 miles in a day.... Thank heavens for 3.89 diff overdrive and 195/65/14 rears....

I'll pass on the tropical storms, cyclones and golf ball sized hail and stick with an occasional drenching... I'm a southerner at heart
