When this thread revived a couple of weeks ago, I looked through the whole thing. This pic from 2013 reminded me of something that happened to a guy I knew in the early '80s. He was in his early 20's, but looked like college professor - heavy set, glasses, beard, calm, thoughtful demeanor, smoked a pipe. His car, an original, unrestored '52 or '53 Chrysler convertible with a 331 Hemi, seemed like a natural fit and completed the image. One day as he was headed home, about 30 miles from home, he ran into a thunderstorm. The rain was so hard and heavy, it completely shredded the 30 year old original top. Being on the highway with no shelter of any kind available, he had no choice but to just keep going! As he told this story a few days later, I pictured him calmly driving through the storm, pipe in his mouth, soaking wet, and completely unfazed!
