Hotter then Hell

To all my Brotheren,

For those of you who don't live in Texas your really missing out. It's been over 100 degrees everyday and plenty of sunshine. I like the warmer weather but this is getting to be like Hell. I guess I ought to get use to it since that's probably where I'm going if I don't change my ways.

Gotta cruise early or late in the day but gotta keep criusen.

See ya on the road.


Jim

I'm actually coming to the realization that maybe having the car in the shop right now isn't such a bad thing considering the ludicris temps here in houston. Consider yourself lucky, you don't have humidity to deal with too!

One more TX guy to the pile...I've quit driving my 64 to work, 25 miles of stop & go on 35 at 5pm with 103 temps is more than my car was ever designed for...no fun at all

I now know where Pennsylvania's summer is...... We have yet to get rid of March weather. Mid July temps are comfortable, evenings are in the high 50's to low 60's. Days are in the low to mid 80's, and the humidity so far has been very tolerable.

Living in MA (pre classic car) I had 4 months of downtime from my motorcycle due to winter weather. Summer seems that way here in TX.

Been a mild summer here in central CA, but this week got back to normal: 103-106 degrees daily, cooling down to 70 by 5am in the morning. The GTO's have been in the garage, and they're hot just sitting in there. Out here, evening is top-down time during the summer. You'll cook in the daytime. Low humidity, though. If you're out of the sun, and have a cold one in hand, it's tolerable. Ahhhhhh Fresno......

I only drove my trans am 3 times, I has been sitting in the shop the last few months because the heat here is so bad and it has no a/c.. In the mornings it's ok but in the afternoon it's horrible. I have to let my car run like 5 minutes for the ac to cool it down..
