I need to travel about 140 miles tomorrow and the forecast if for lots of rain. I have not had the C7 in much rain. I would enjoy some input from those of you who have driven in heavy rains.
Did your Spitfire have the floorboard mod for drainage? The "mod" was a hole with a plug so you could pull the plug and drain the water out. Many ragtops of that era had drain plugs for the interior..... Of course that assumes the floorboards hadn't created their own drainage as they rusted away.Ditto. Yesterday was my last day of 5 heading back from NCM and it rained as hard as I've ever seen from entering PA to Harrisburg. Excellent wipers, excellent handling. Had it in weather mode while it was wet. My first convertible that didn't drip water on my lap when it rained that hard! I used to keep a towel in my Triumph Spitfire so my dates wouldn't get too wet. From the rain of course.
I passed a pack of about 20 cars driving 45 mph IN THE LEFT LANE with their hazard lights flashing - in the pouring rain. That's when it occurred to me that some people should be stabbed in the throat with their own driver's license. Thankfully, that's when the HUD notified me an awesome song was playing on XM Channel 34, so I pressed SELECT on the steering wheel instead, smiled and just drove around them.Speaking of the other idiots, why do people insist on putting their hazard lights on in heavy rain??? Pet peeve of mine, in a lot of traffic, all those flashing lights make it even HARDER to see stuff through the rain. If you think you are a hazard, GET OFF THE ROAD!!!
Raydor how do you do that?Thankfully, that's when the HUD notified me an awesome song was playing on XM Channel 34, so I pressed SELECT on the steering wheel instead, smiled and just drove around them.
Did I mention the infotainment system is one of my favorite things about this car?
