I love driving her in the rain (pretty much just driving her period) although I don't like that I can't keep my windows open in the rain

I love driving in the rain, a good coat of wax and sealant should keep her dry! May I refer you to the detailing section and checkout CamaroDreams07 AKA CD07

It's a car, its purpose is to get you from A to B safe, dry and not smelly. So my car sees rain and extreme heat. I have nothing against those that refuse to put the car in the elements, but they don't live life to the fullest if you ask me.

Also, when I drive in the rain I spent good money on a set of wheels and tires that are specifically designed for none summer usage so they should perform better than summer tires in the rain and if we get any snow down here in Texas.

Eh, I'm in NM and we've also been part of the record rainfall with Colorado. SS is fine and actually purring a bit louder with the cooler air :-) Rain, snow, or heat, she's protected with Adam's machine super sealant.

She's my DD, I don't have a choice. Got caught in a hail storm about a month back. Got two good hits, I actually cried.

That's always my worst fear is getting caught in a hail storm since it hailed once here but luckily i didn't have my camaro during that time. Now everytime it rains I'm ready with the keys to find shelter just incase it hails.

I love taking it out in the rain actually. The cloudy/rainy weather appeals to me and the black looks like a work of art with the water glistening off it. A good wax keeps her gleaming afterwards.

She gets driven 4 days a week, no matter what the weather. I'm big on waxing and washing, so if she gets dirty, I get her clean in the next day or two. No big deal.
