Top down and windows up is for old real estate agents driving their BMW convertibles!

I don't have the vert, but my first car was a Lebaron GTC convertible (I was in highschool/college, bear with me haha!)

One of my biggest pet peeves is people with the top down and windows up. I generally try really really hard to see other peoples' points of view but this is one where I don't even want to listen after "Well, but SOMETIMES you just..." No! Its a convertible, use it for the air!!!!

It should be automatic that when you lower the top, the windows go down (like they do now) and the window controls get disabled.

Top down, windows down.
Period.

Only tourists are allowed to have the windows up. Even then I'm going to downshift on you...

Pet peeve of mine. Why the hell would you buy a convertible to drive with the windows up? Proud convertible owner since 1988 when I got my 69 SS 350 Convertible Camaro. I can honestly say I have never had the windows up when the top is down. Unless the wife put up her passenger window which is rare cause she never rides with me. If it is above 45 the top is down. Top down season in Minnesota is to short to have the top up.

They only go up if the wife gets cold or briefly if I take a Bluetooth call while driving as I can't carry on any phone conversation when they are down. Yesterday I saw a worse sin in a convertible all the windows down top up when it was 75 and sunny.

I always have the windows down with the top when by myself, sometimes put windows up when my daughters are in the backseat!! They do get a lot of wind back there!

Almost exactly the same for me! And she will probably have her seat warmer on too.

Windows up for two specific reasons:

1. With the 6 speed I take all my calls via hands free. Need the windows up to hear and to be heard.

2. When my 6 year old is in the back seat it keeps her hair relatively tangle free.

Otherwise, I'm with you!

3 reasons I may drive with the top down and windows up.
1. Driving on the interstate and receive a phone call, cannot hear because of wind and trucks.
2. 95+ degrees out in city traffic on a sunny day. Helps keep cool with the AC blowing in my face.
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.

Question...

Which do you think the Service Techs prefer when they're out joy riding... er...I mean, test driving customers' Camaro convertibles?
