The Britcar ragtop is the ultimate one-way valve -- water gets in and
never gets out.

I once got a pet from a '58 MGA coupe -- Ratso.

Since my car lives outside with the top usually off, the neighborhood
tomcats entertain their dates in it.  I guess it's safe, warm, and
romantic under the black tonneau.  The smell is overpowering.  Some
one wise in the ways of the world (Sasha, an 80 year old Ukranian woman)
told me to spray ammonia in the car and the cats would leave it alone.  
She was wrong.  I guess the tomcats thought that their territory was
being invaded by the ammonia cat.  Now, I'm happy if they don't get the 
driver's seat.  But at least I don't get mice.
