Unhappy I know we need the rain but.......

I picked up my car Friday afternoon between rain showers and it's been sitting in the garage ever since. Of course I got a ticket on the way home with it, just a small one (100 in a 60 )

So my point is I need the rain to stop so I can drive this thing. It's not a DD so it's not going to see rain if I can help it.

Come on sunny and 80 degree weather.

At least we know what the ticket is for no front license plate costs for Texas

and @ 162.00 to me its worth the the cost.
Looks like he was looking to write you up for everything.
Was it DPS?

Getting a license plate citation doesn't affect your insurance rates, does it?

Shouldn't; It's usually just moving violations that affect insurance.

I have driven in the rain and it doesn't hurt the car one bit. It just means you have to wash it to make it all pretty and clean once again, which I call bonding with my car. I don't really understand this. With all of the coatings and stuff they do to cars now days, there really isn't any concerns at least to me about it becoming a rust bucket.

I don't mind sitting on the side lot and sneeking in a brew or two. Let me know what works. It looks like this weekend may turn out to be alright afterall. Shoot me a PM when you get a moment. I think that we are free Saturday but have some plans Sunday afternoon.

Not worried about hurting the car. Just no need to track mud and crap inside the car. Three of my cars and my Harley don't see any rain anytime...that's just how I roll.

Will do. BTW I think I saw you today. Sweet looking combo.

I was out and about a few times today. We just got home from having dinner at Rockfish and took the ride. I just took a quick spin around Lantana with my son and got caught in a brief rain shower. Oh well, it was bound to happen sometime.

Let me know when Sonic sounds good and we will meet you up there for burgers and beer, er, Cherry Limeades.
