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!

I hate seeing windows up and top down myself. You'll never see me like that!

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?

I'm sure they are rapidly putting them up and down the whole time while flooring it to ensure they are secured.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible owner's manual recommends:
"not raising or lowering the top at speeds in excess of 30 mph."

I look forward to that caveat being included in the 6th Generation Camaro owner's manual.
