Who didn't get their top down today?

Simple answer ..... Me.

Did over 200 miles up to Tyndrum and over to Pitlochry doing a final check on a tweek to one of the routes for the upcoming Scottish road trip.

Although it rained off and on the whole journey, it's still beautiful scenery.

Let's hope the weather is a little brighter in April than in these pics though.

Ah, I remember those clouds well. We visited you several years ago. Quite an enjoyable time (except for one hotel).

Wife is Scottish so we may be back some day

likewise, it's good weather for a submarine or boat here. Was hoping to apply that gummi stuff to the rubber seals today but think I would need a rubber duck if I opened the roof with the amount of rain coming down at the moment. Annoyingly the sun keeps coming out for 5 mins and then pops back in behind a rain cloud

I literally have not touched mine in 2 weeks. I went on vacation to visit my parents in Las Vegas. I did go top-free in this for 200 miles through Lake Mead area and Valley of Fire.
Here is a picture of when my dad was driving.
I was going to rent an AMG GT for 5 hot laps on a track, but for the same price (about $250 with tax and insurance) I got this for 24 hours and first 200 miles free.

Very sharp showers (including hail) and lots of them meant no top-down action in Surrey yesterday. Did manage 70 miles in Silkie though so not all bad.

I even took Silkie paddling yesterday.. Two roads flooded and lots of puddles.

I didn't either, given our lovely Seattle rain ...

However, since the forecast calls for rain for at least the next seven days, making any top-down driving unlikely this week, the SLK did get washed and detailed today as I figured I'd get the CLK out of the garage and put some mileage on it for a change.
