Decided I had enough time cooped up in an MGB with the top up. So I went topless this morning and drove to work. It’s been down all day. I wasn’t bad, only my ears were cool on the ride to work.
But I got some serious looks. And I don’t think it was because I lack a grill, have overspray on my radiator, and have no bumpers. I overheard a couple folks comment “look at that nut”. Yes we can hear everything without a top and rolled up windows.
Too many people buy convertibles for the idea. I know some folks who hardly ever ride with the top down. That goes for a lot of things, though. I know a lot of people who buy huge homes and don’t need 1/3 of the space, then have to live with bigger mortgage payments, utilities, etc. Some buy cars that have 450 horsepower and go 0 to 60 in 4 seconds, but they never race the car or drive it like a dervish on a race track.
Then there’s people like me who drive a 49 year old car with top down with temperatures in the 30’s, I guess some might lump me in the same group. Oh well.
Now I’ve got to ride home with top down in running shorts.
