3. Below 60 on a cloudy day driving over 50 miles an hour to help keep warm air inside the car.

All other times windows are down whenever the top is down.
What he said plus my windows are tinted and I have a windscreen, so you can have conversation and a little privacy, especially at night.

I see a lot of top down windows up folks in town here in Phoenix. Even when it's not particularly hot or cold out. Probably more BMW's that any thing else. I guess they are talking on the phone, since so many people can't seem to do anything without talking on their phone these days. Or maybe they just don't want their hair mussed up.

The funniest looking ones are those with their top down, front windows down, and back windows up. Can't imagine why, unless the back ones are broken.

top down windows down. Why do it half ass. If you're going to do something do it right.

Besides it looks a little Anderson Cooper going down the road.

Nope. Bad habit of not driving her unless the weather's perfect. 200 miles this year. Like I said, bad habit. Obsessed with keeping her dirt-free. Gotta get over it, but the older I get the more anal retentive.

Look at it this way, the older you get the less time you have on this earth to enjoy your Camaro. Get out and drive it and enjoy it for what it was built for....

Hey I'll put the windows up with top down, but that's generally with the gf when it's a little chilly. I would rather just have the heat cranked a little and maybe the heated seats on. The heat in my car is great! Also, I'm a fan of turning on the AC with the top down if the sun is beating on me...

I never put my top down when temps are below 65-70 F. or when it feels chilly. When I do have the top down, however, I always have my windows DOWN as the turbulence isn't great at all in the Camaro.

With my old Saturn SKY Redline, on the other hand, you had to have your cap RIVETED to your head as the turbulence was incredible.
