The solidity and confident ride of my car in the rain. I'm certainly not going to drive fast or do any fancy maneuvers while the streets are slick or while my visibility is poor from sheets of gray rain. But even at low speed the car rides well, like a cruise ship on a stormy sea.

Cruise ship? Sound insulting? Ah, but remember that the big famous cruise ships of the 1940s, the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary, started as troop ships, and were so astonishingly fast they could outrun the German U-Boats that lay in wait to torpedo slower ships.
