I was expecting to see some snow. I see the icicles behind the front tire though. I guess no one can say that their car has never seen rain or snow, when they are all stored outside awaiting shipment.

Today's cars are built very well and utilize technology to be adaptable to all weather conditions. Any car built today can be driven in any condition without succumbing to it.

A well-cared for and clean car is a well-cared for and clean car.

While it's nice to boast that your car has "never seen rain", who can tell? When fully detailed, my car looks like it's never even been driven when in reality it's a daily driver that hauls ass through these Canadian winters.

It wouldn't bother me if it sat outside at times in the rain or snow. Its the actual driving in it that I would never do. Being anal, and working in a collision shop, I have seen my share of cars driven in the salt. I've seen the rust formation behind panels (places you can't get too unless you take the car apart) caused by moisture and dirt from driving in all conditions. I'm talking cars less than 4 years old. Thats why mine will never see it.

Glad mine was built in September. I haven't driven mine in the rain yet and will try not too(except maybe on the power tour if needed). It is just getting the engine bay and everything cleaned up afterwards that is a pain.

There they aren't having crushed lava rock gravels bouncing off the front and sides of the cars. Good pics though, I like that IOM 'vert w/ black stripes and black ragtop. I'll take it icicles and all.

Too bad Chuck Norris isn't in Oshawa, because if he was the water would be too scared to freeze.
