My convertible in the rain story...

I had to drive my dad in my Mazda RX7 convertible 200 miles from Gaylord to Lansing yesterday.
The weather yesterday was absolutely crummy In the area halfway to our destination. Heavy thunderstorms and VERY heavy rain.

Well it was hot as crap up in gaylord and the duct tape holding my convertible top on the Mazda kept melting and falling of. I finally pull over south of the 75 interchange and rip all the duct tape off and throw it out. Check the weather on my phone and see there is a slight hole in the weather ahead. I look at my dad and say,
"We are dropping the top and flying through this storm. The rain will go over our heads."
He cracks up and agrees to the ridiculous plan and we head off with the top down. The other people were giving us the craziest looks as we drove towards a black sky. Saw two motorcyclists pulled over under an overpass and they waved! haha

Anways I get to it and there is a straight up wall of water ahead of us. It felt I ran into a waterfall! Almost no visibility and quite loud. But as I get my bearings I realize, we aren't getting wet! My dad and I cheered and kept on down the highway in the downpour. Saw two Lightning strikes on the road right ahead of us. Didn't slow down. haha

Anyways it was about 15 minutes of this nonsense and we came out of the other side perfectly dry! Its by far the coolest thing I've ever done.

Anybody do anything similar?

One time on the school bus we were going really fast. I spit out the window and it flew back into the bus a few windows down and hit a girl on the corner of her mouth. Half of it went into her mouth and the other half all over her face.

Did the same in my Jeep the other day. Was cool, but not the coolest thing I have ever done. You need to live a little son.

I threw a cigarette out of a limo window and it somehow came back in and burned a hole in the seat.
