    Yes, back when it was a real car. Now the top has to be dropped manually, the rims got sold (now has steelies), the A/C is broke bad, and the exhaust caught the back seat afire.

    Re: With the price of gas going up, do you still joy-ride?

    The Price of Gas rising has never stopped me from enjoying a nice cruice a joy ride or a trip
    when i first got my license gas was 78 cents a gallon and i drove 40k a year
    and now gas is 3.99 a gallon and i still drive 40k a year

    Joy ride heck yeah
    whats more fun not much then getting out on a open road in the summer windows down radio blasting dog in the back seat girlfirend next to me
    best friend and his girl crammed in the back seat with the beagle and a picnic basket to go for a 100 mile trip out to the ledges for the day and back

    id hate to say it but when gas reaches 10 a gallon ill still be driving on those trips

    Top down motoring IS a stress reliever especially in a classic.
