    OK, I know this has been done before, but with highs now in the high 80s an open car is a bit more comfy. Triple didgits bake you pretty quick.
    Been driving the T pretty much daily and snapped this pic with a customers deuce.
    Who else has pics at work?

  2. I drove my old beater yesterday but don't have any photographic proof!

    I could probably get a signed affidavit from the boss!:D HRP

    I live in Illinois, but I'm in Michigan for work this week. Drove my 37 here on Sunday, so it's my only driver around town while I'm here. Two cruise nights attended so far, heading for #3 tonight, then home in the morning.

    Work is a relative term for me. Uncle Sammy sends me my SS check every moth but I also get to show up at Harolds Hot Rods and build cool cars. Pretty much can set my own schedule but still seem to get in 40 hrs a week. I guess the only thing making it work is the paycheck at the end of the week.

  15. I build cars at home, so my commute is about a 50 foot walk, but I drive my 25 T truck rain or shine, everywhere I go.

    Didn't drive my 32 to work but took it to visit Henry at Steadfast Mfg. Nice little 2 hr drive.

    Took the Merc out yesterday. Not to work, but had to go to the machine shop. The riding lawnmower spit the valve seat out of the head, and hung the intake valve open. No actual pics from yesterday, but this is downtown, about 2 blocks from the machine shop.

    being able to drive a Cool ride to work, etc is dependent on company insured with and restrictions in policy. sometimes just gotta go for it but, one mistake can be costly. I usually am heading for a show or hot rod shop, etc. to be on the safe side.

    not me... :-( once it's done I will as long as I can keep the dbags at work from sitting on the fenders... I'm guessing the last one who was leaning on my OT SS Nova might have spread the word once he figured out why his head was ringing... One good hit was all it took, gave him a quick lesson in respect. ;-)

    So far so good for me...I do however lock the doors and I think these days unfortunately a necessary evil. I read another thread and someone came back to their car with someone playing in it. I also am quite vigilant in poking my nose out to just keep an eye. Sorry your colleagues aren't more respecting of others property.
