Is 50 Degree's warm enough to go topless?

Is 50 Degree's warm enough to go topless? Just want to know if we're all the same type of crazy. My vote is YES! Then again, maybe it's not crazy.

Hope all you out there with vert's are enjoying the ride!

Just got back from the local store to pick up some milk. At 43 degrees outside I still had the top down ! Maybe in a few months 50 will be too cold but not now !

I am in Phoenix. It is 100 degF here today. I would say 110 degF is too hot to go topless.

Its all relative. In my area (S. Florida) 50 degrees is cold.

But If I had a Vert I'd rather drive with the top down in 50 degree weather than 95 degree weather. When its real hot, I want the windows up and the AC on blast. I hate to get too hot.

I think that depends on what you are doing. If you are going somewhere that you don't want to be a little on the sweaty side, then top up, but if it doesn't matter, like to the store, my top is staying down!

Been driving past 6 years with the tops down anything above 35. Heated seats, heater blowing and a good jacket. I don't buy convertibles to have the tops up.

Absolutely. I've driven top down in convertibles as low as the 30s. Run the heater with all the vents pointed at you, and you'll actually stay quite warm.

People ride motorbikes at those temps so why not. At least you can turn the heat on.

Not a problem. Did it for quite a while today without seat warmers or heaters. What I find helpful in the low 50's is a pair of light gloves to keep the back of the hands warm.

Absolultely. Plus the Camaro really doesn't have much buffeting so it's just the ambient temperature.

Enjoy it!!!!!

We're already getting too hot to go topless in the afternoon (95 and cloudless). I can't wait for the early morning or late evening to drop it and run!!!

If you've got the 2LT or 2SS with leather seats, I say top down at any temp. Turn on the heated seats and go for it.

50 degrees is perfect for the top down.

I didn't want leather interior this time around, so I went aftermarket. Works as good as the factory ones in my last 2 Solaras, which were excellent.

It was 49 today and had my top down. Heck I wouldn't care if it was 30 - just as long as it was dry! - Sick of snow and rain in Pittsburgh.

it was 42 degrees and I drove home with the top down.

Only bad times to have the top down is:
Raining
Migrating birds
Bee swarm
Dairy Farms
Driving through Norco, Ca.
Any others?
