Bob, absolutely not. I was on the phone with my bud I said "oh f@#k!!" dropped the phone got the towels threw the top up and went to work.

Now it's abck to watching the Wings Play Off hockey

I'll claim warranty.

I bet you will, until the mechanics notice the high amount of water damage. Of course, how high was the water in it? Unless the controls were just saturated and sitting in water, they should be fine. Also, don't turn it on until it has all dried out COMPLETELY. Just like a cell phone, it only gets fried when a charge is applied. May want to disconnect the battery. Little late for that, though. Really, you could be fine...though I'm assuming you didn't turn it on...RIGHT?

Just shut up Croc. Its not Hurricane season in Detroit so we dont have to worry about 4ft floods.

Lets make a pact. You dont post in my threads, I wont propose banning you.

Deal or no deal?

Bummer about the car, but if you didn't get too much standing water it should be okay if you let it dry completely. A couple of hot dry days with the top down should help- just don't leave it out in the heat with the top up- you could get mold.

Is there something I'm missing here, re you and Croc?

Woah.. let's all calm down here and stay on topic. Forum-feuds never help anyone. Weither you're serious about it or not.

That totally sucks about your solstice. If it were me, I would never leave the top down on that baby (clear or cloudy) I wouldn't want to risk anything when I have a car that looked that hot.

I guess it's another life lesson.

I think it's best not to get into it.

I would definitely take Croc's advice. It's genuinely helpful.

I have no idea, to be completely honest. I was just trying to be helpful.

Thank you for seeing it my way.

No deal. You do not have the power to ban me, you have no valid reason to propose banning me, and there is nothing in this thread to even provoke the kind of response you just gave. I think you are the one who needs to "just shut up."

Considering I can still ban you, it gives me the power to ban you. Unlike most people here, I don't feel the need to argue my points, especially when you are ruining my buzz.

I've left the top down on the Jeep about 5 times too many. . . most of the water would puddle up on the floor considering my luck would have it that it would rain in the middle of night but the best part of it all was that I only needed to pull the plugs and let it all drain out.

There isn't so much of a "season" for it. You can't really predict when an EQ is gonna occur, and they even occur in the midwest with the New Madrid fault.

In fact, the Mississippi River is the result of an old, failed rift zone (where continental crust breaks apart into separate plates).

I actually feel safer EQ-wise in SoCal than I do back in the midwest since California has some of the strictest building codes in the world as a result of having EQs...if the New Madrid fault were to become more active, I really question how well St. Louis would hold up. I know L.A. can withstand up to an 8.0 without much issue...and likely up to a 8.5. Anything above that? Who knows. But those are so rare.

so your not woried that Cal. will break off into the ocean and float away like the crazy theories out there.

Yeah i didnt now that about the mississippi river tho. a few years ago in michigan we had an earthquake. I was in a mine that day and these warnings started going off and people were running to these little rooms. but it was so weak you could hardly feel it.
