Chinese Jeep Fire Drill

So has anybody ever played Chinese Fire Drill in a car, or a table, movie theater?

For those of you who haven't, it's when you have a group of people together, and you randomly all get up and switch chairs. When I was in high school, it was something we all used to do at stop lights.

Anyways, today I was by myself driving home from work, and the weather was nice... and I thought to myself, heck, I should take half my doors off. So at a stop light I took care of it, while everybody watched, seemingly amused. Well, I had a jacket on, and it wasn't that cold, so at the next light... off came the doors!

Got me thinking, I'm probably not the first Jeep owner that's done this, if it was really nice, I would have taken the top off.

So who's taken their top (or doors) off at a random time, lets hear it?!

Hahaha, it actually doesn't take that long, I just throw them in my back seat, and if you hustle right as you hit a red light, you can generally get it done. I also don't have the nuts on my doors real tight, at least for the moment, so I can take them off by hand at any whim.

I work in an area called Tysons Corner right outside DC, our traffic is pretty horrible around here, so the lights are fairly long. It's only 5 miles from my place, but it takes me about 25 mins to get there.

Here's a traffic cam (in about an hour, good luck moving): TrafficLand.com -- Route 7 Tysons Corner

I dropped the top while waiting for a train at a RR crossing once. Plenty of time.

i live a couple minutes from there. the trick is to learn the back ways. they can still take some time, but its better then sitting on the main roads. and its also a lot of fun confusing your passengers. i can be going from my house to tysons, and have about 10 different routes to chose from.

Actually I have often put the roof up in random places. As when you get caught in a storm with the top down.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Every year around here there is a petting zoo that has a drive through christmas light show. i usually wait till the last minute to rip the windows out on the sides before going through. Near the halfway point you get to drive around with a lot of weir looking deer, ostrich, cows, etc. so it's more fun with the windows out. Usually when i do this there are a few hundred cars behind me.

also at cades cove park near gatlinburg tennessee for viewing/photographing wildlife.

You hit the backroads during rush hour any day of the week and they're just as bad as heading taking 66 for one exit. It's pretty horrible, I'm not looking forward to Christmas season right by the mall

My gf is from Strawberry Plains right outside Knoxville! It's round about that time for the petting zoo to open that one up, that's neat that you can take a mini "safari" with sides and doors off!

Ive rolled my rear window up, and took my doors off before people laugh lol.

The best look I ever got one time was on the way home from the badlands covered in mud with just the top on with no windows or doors, and a storm hits. And I passed this minivan with kids I was soakin wet and still truckin
