Horror stories Car Shows and rain

Allrighty I know we have all had this problem. Today at work we are having a car show/picnic etc. Weatherman all week said 10% chance of rain last night it said not until after 2PM. This morning I get up and it is raining all the way to work. I will have to wait until after the sun comes up to see how much recleaning I have to do. Glad it is a paved parking lot not a field. Any horror stories.

I don't have any horror stories yet but?

Isn't really a horror story, but on the last day of mustang week it literally poured for a good half hour and everyone was running and hiding and the ones that had car covers were rushing to get them covered. Most were soaked and the tents at the show were packed with people, I got stuck under the pro-dyno tent which wasn't so bad, until they figured out there was plenty of electrical components about to be drenched in water, so they unplugged everything and waited until the rain and water on the ground subsided before continuing to dyno any cars.

I thought this was going to be a story about SK's Christina or the books name From A Buick 8.

I remember seeing a Roush with a suede interior that left their windows down. It made me sad lol. I'm stoked for the Stampede though.
