On Monday, I laid in my dermatologists chair for three hours while he 
removed successive layers of a Basal cell carcinoma from the left side 
of my snotlocker.  As his assistant went back and forth to the lab to 
see if he had removed it all, we got to talking. 

When I told the skin doc  I had owned my Sprite for over 45 years, he 
exclaimed, "Ah, THAT is the reason."  He explained that the continued 
exposure to the sun while driving had probably led to the skin cancer.  
"You really should have been using a sun block all these years.  If you 
had, you probably would not be here."  I had to explain to him that for 
most of those years, sun block as we know it today did not exist.  
(Although I remember lifeguards smearing white stuff on there noses.)

Anyway, he asked that I caution everyone driving a convertible, 
expecially those of English and Northern European stock, to always wear 
a good sun block or face the same consequences in the years to come.
