    Yep, I was kicking it home from my lake house in Kerr Lake, VA yesterday down I-40 in Big Orange. About ten minutes outside of Raleigh, NC, the bottom fell out. Here I am, doorless, no shirt on, no clean clothes left, and towing my jet-ski which isn't hooked up to the trailer lights. Well, good ol' mother nature decided it would be funny to let it rain until I was 5 miles away from my house. So that left me with 100 some odd miles of down pour, driving 65-70 MPH, and people looking at me like I'm crazy. Other than coming closer to hypothermia than I would rather be, I LOVED IT!

    Now, does anyone have any tips on how to dry out the ENTIRE interior of a K5? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    BTW, if I passed by you on the roads, I was the idiot in the orange K5 with no doors and the black hardtop.

    Park it under the sun crack all the windows and use a fan.

    That is, after you vacuum everything first!
