Ok mine is here. Looked at it when I parked it and one of the back road hat a bit of Cow dodo. Just a bit but I could not stand it. I went out at first break and cleaned it!
I will not do that route on the way home! Shocked

:auto: Well I drove her to work today. The first car I passed was a C4 (big wave). That was to only Vette I saw all the way into Grand Rapids. Rained just enough to spot her up.Angry

Well I drove it to work today, but forgot my camera. That's OK, got plenty of pictures from the last 4 years.

Didn't drive mine - weather liars said 40% chance of thunder storms. Of course, not a drop of rainAngry. But I did see a group of about 10 parked at the local Hooters as I drove by today.

I was going to drive mine but there was a 50 % chance of rain and thunderstorms, That NEVER HAPPENED!! so I decided on a late evening drive. Grabbed the keys for the vette and left the keys to the door.Censored So I had to brteak into my own house after a nice leizurly long drive!

Okay, so we took Blizz out for a spin and to dinner. When dinner was over I comae out to a torrential downpour. ( I got soaked to my skivies getting to the car.

Bright side is I don't have to wash the car now. I brought it home shammied it down and hung her red nylons up to dry.

Gave me a chance to Dry her off and put on the new red leather bra...

Always something positive in every negative..... Ah..... "Life Is Good..... !"

So that I would remember, I just wrote Vette on the calendar at work for Friday.  One of my employees was on vacation last week and came in in on Monday and asked what that meant.   I told her I was reminding myself to drive my car that day and that it was a national event.  She asked "what if you don't have one to drive?".  One of my other employees just said "then you are just a f****** loser".

[QUOTE=Aaron1976]They don't allow cameras at my work, but I should be able to drive my Vette to work that day. Has this gotten national attention on the news? I hope so.Thumbs%20Up[/QUOTE]
 
Well, after nearly 10 years I found out they don't allow cameras at my work either.  ConfusedEmbarrassed 
 
So I drive the Vette to work and get so busy I don't take a picture until I head home for the day.  So I figure hey, if I take the picture here it could be any parking lot right?  So I drive up and park under the company sign and logo, I get out and take a couple shots of the car.  As I get back in the car and start to leave here comes Mr. Rent-a-cop (I'm sorry, "Private Law Enforcement Officer") flagging me over.  My first thought was that I parked in a reserve spot and I was about to be lectured on why that was wrong.   To my surprise he informs me cameras are prohibited on the premises.  He took my name and I told him I would inform HR Monday to get permission to use the pictures.Embarrassed
 
The best way to learn all the rules is to break a few!!LOL
