Summertime and the cruisin' is great.

Post by Southernboy » Fri 23 Nov, 2012 08:46

Just been out for a 120km run to the capital - Pretoria and back...roof down, sunshine, blue skies, and that distinctive purr of an inline six.... Highway driving all the way with only the salesmen and mamas on the roads.....what it is to have a Zed in :sunny South Africa !!!
For all you wet wet wet fans in the UK.... I did think of you...but only briefly. :D

isn't there a chance of being eaten by a large cat with the top down on the zed or aren't they as fast running as they appear on the tv?

The sentiments expressed here are touching.....as far as fast cats go, I have a Bengal as a pet. He sleeps on my couch. Keeps the sh**ing baboons etc away... :D :D
Yes the weather is terrific...35C. today, after some late night sub-tropical rain, complete with electrical activity, huge thunder etc... very African.... I expect it'll rain during the night again tonight..well that's what the weathermen say...I don't mind that, as long as the days are sunny for top down driving...without flying jackets, Russian hats and or raincoats, sweaters etc etc ... :sunny

.....some people on this forum are likely to derive some sadistic pleasure from the fact that it started raining around midnight last night, and.....yes, it's 7.30am and still coming down... :cry:
On the positive side, a good day to be doing the re-fitting etc of the Zed's interior... :D

I must admit a crisp Autumn/Winter day is the best time for top down action. I tend not to open the top when it's really hot / sunny, I'm allergic being a Brit'. :D

Agreed - I did exactly the same, a great trip out on 'A' and 'B' roads. :)

I love these guys that aren't daunted by weather...Must say, it is a pleasure to take a drive - appropriately dressed - in the winter here too. I would really like to see a pic of PCSAM with flying jacket and Russian hat in his Z3... :shock:
