Default On the Road in a Roadster



As the cold winds blow, and rain clouds approach, there is no doubt that old man Winter is upon us. Time to put up the top, turn on the heater, and wear a warm jacket when you drive the old car. As a toast the lingering days of Fall, I figured I woul...

Great thread. Love the photo of that roadster in the rain.

Top down is the only way to go on a nice day.

There is nothing like it. Driving my '26 is like a slightly larger go cart out on the road amongst all the grownups. I feel like I am doing something very illegal whenever I drive it. As for the weather, hunker down and get below the windshield so that biting air does not freeze your face. But the smells and sound of the engine bouncing off it's surroundings is enough to keep my ass warm.....well at least my soul.

Top? we don't need no stinkin' top!



The road just looks better through a roadsters wind screen.

Of all my family's cars, the 32 Roadster Grandpa purchased in October of 53 will always be my favorite.

Something about the closeness to the road that you just can't beat. Last couple of weekends have been wonderful here in central Indiana and I have logged as many miles as I can....cause I know what is just around the corner.

My '29 just came back to me fully assembled and ready to drive a few days ago. I managed to get 200 miles on the clock, and hope to have a day here and there through the winter when it's dry enough to get it out (warm would be nice, too, but dry is all that's really necessary- I'll dress for the cold). Nothing more fun than the roadster.
