Well its December and too cold to drive my car to work. The next best thing, Dust Devil's roadster calendar at my workstation. Clearly, Bill left the best picture for the last month!

On the way home there was a freak fog/drizzle and I actually used my wipers! The last time I used them was in 2004 :shock:

Thanks Alvin, these never get old, and are inspiration (kick in the @#$) to get out and get more miles on them.

Just remember that if you are insured by Hagerty classic insurance that you are not suppose to be driving to work in the roadster as it is for shows, club events, cruises and pleasure only and not daily use, errands or for work. Bummer.

That is correct. These insurance carriers actually employ young, social media savvy people to search forums, facebook, twitter, instagram, etc.. You would be amazed what these kids can find and use against the insured in the event of a loss. They can technically say you have voided the contract by driving to work as that is prohibited under the Hagerty policy as well as the Grundy policy. If you are involved in an accident, and there is police called, don't say you were on the way home from or to work. If you do have a classic car policy, be careful what you post on social media. I'm as guilty as the next guy.

BTW, that is why you only pay $200 - $300 for the policy as it does not take into account daily driving in the rating factor and they build stop gaps in the policy wording to protect their interests and try to deny coverage.
