    Out from hibernation

    Well we finally have a nice day, sunny and 55. Can't beat that for early March. After many months went for a ride with the top down.

    55 and the top down?? That's still a bit too chilly for my taste. I guess it probably feels good to you guys out on the East coast though after the winter you all have had.

    I had my Camaro out this week too, mostly 60s here this week. Back when I had my vert, I would have the top down in the 40s As long as it wasn't raining, top was usually down

    Exactly. That's the whole reason they put heaters in 'verts, right? I mean, who in their right mind drives these in the winter?

    Got mine down for a spin a drove it to work the last 2 days. First time since like November. Better knock on wood or we'll get another blizzard next week.
