Mainer Drives a Topless Convertible in a Snowstorm and the Reactions Are Just as ‘Maine’
This is the type of stuff you really only ever see in Maine.
Shorts in the winter, no jackets in freezing rain, and apparently riding in your convertible with the top down in the middle of a wet snowstorm.
This was a story that was shared by Chief Bucknam from the Skowhegan Police Department last year in the winter of 2022 and we are so happy he did
This audacious adventurer bundled up in their heavy winter gear but didn’t put a top on…
What would be even funnier is taking that last sentence out of context and picturing someone driving around in a convertible with their shirt off, just saying.
Hey, I don’t blame the guy. I am a windows down, heat on type of driver in the winter because I looove fresh air, so I’d love to cruise around in something like this. I am also an OG Mainer so the cold doesn’t affect us like it does other folks.
What I would really love is to know the story behind it. He got pushed out of a snowbank and then went on his merry way, but to where? I wouldn’t let a snowstorm or lack of roof get in the way of a lot of things: bowling, Bailey’s, or a McDonald’s burger. I wonder what his vice is.
I also wonder if the same driver did anything similar this year. We just had snow dump on us last night and are about to get even more tonight, but I'm sure if this guy was out there driving around in the snow storm with the top off again, pictures would be flooding around.
The picture is iconic itself but the comments are just as ‘Maine’. Here are some of the reactions on Facebook:
