    If there is no precipitation, my top is down!! It might be 30 degrees out, if it is clear my top is down.
    Is there other freaks out there? See ya!!

    It can even be cloudy out. I have had to dry my interior with a towel at least 2 times, so far.

    I let my top down @ 55F and up. I may be the only with my top down @ 54F, but damn my mustang sounds great. I just came back from a unnessicary drive with the top down @ 73F outside. Fucking crazy i tell you. You people with hard tops need to experience the sound of your cars exhaust with no back window blocking the sound.

    I do it all the time 45 degrees top is down. what really ticks me off is the people who have convertibles and drop the top and leave all of the windows up

    My top is down most of the time. The only time I dont put it down if I am extremely late somewhere and just need to jump in my car and go....Or its raining outside lol.

    Besides my top is so raggedy that having it down makes the car look 100x better.

    Ok, its an old fashion necropost. We can either let it die again, or keep posting...

    ...anyway, my top is down over 9 months out of the year and that included while parked. 65F is the limit, mostly because 65 is freaking cold here. Only time I ever avoided this rule was when my old top had shrunk and wouldnt close

    My top hasn't been down yet this summer. Probably because i haven't started my car since March. I'm ready to play with it but its been to hot and muggy here.
