QOTD: What’s the limit for drop-top weather?

QOTD: What's the limit for drop-top weather?

My current test drive is a Lexus LC convertible. Or was, when it returned to its home on Press Fleet Island about an hour ago.

Anyway, around the time I got the car, Chicagoland was draped in cooler temperatures. So I didn’t drop the top as much as I would have liked.

Similarly, I tested a Mini convertible last winter, during freezing temperatures, and as a test of my cold tolerance – and that of the car – I dropped the roof on a frigid January day. Made it about five minutes before lifting it again.

So I ask you — what’s your line between top-down and top-up? Sixty degrees? Fifty? Putting it down, even if there are snowmen in people’s yard?

Sound off below.
