I think my coldest was 50-60 but that's because that's tree coldest here in az. As for top down I did it during fall and right now in winter but with a nice jacket. I barely got the car in April so I'll try out spring soon. I rarely put the top down in the summer because 120 degrees and leather are not a nice mix

I have driven with my top back in the winter here in about 38-40 degrees with a overcast and some light rain, I dropped my son off in Montgomery,AL and drove it back top off back to Atlanta,GA which is about a three hour drive, I was cold I cut the heater on and coat and beanie. But I was mad his mom pissed me off hating on my car.... Stupid B*** so I peeled out and me and the Go Fast were on the highway!... I've done it twice more since but it cold to cold now for that.

A little different, but I used to love taking my t-tops off in high school whenever the sun was out. If there were no clouds, the temperature didn't matter. Sun in the face, wind in the hair, perfection. I swear I was a dog in a former life.

Perfect weather is 60-70. As long as it's not raining my top is down. Coldest was low 30's high 20's. Was a decent snow on the ground and I did a 3 hr road trip.
Hottest is 105 or so. Baking at that point.

Best weather? 75 - 80 with no humidity. My top is down all summer unless it's raining. For me, it can never be too hot to have the top down. We wait too long for warm weather in Wisconsin. In Spring and Fall, anything in the 60s is probably good enough. Have thrown on a windbreaker and heat on mornings when it was still in the 50s. Coldest was upper 30s in a rental in Arizona going through the mountains on the way to Prescott last February. It was about a week before they got hit with that snowstorm.

I have never and will never drive with the top down and windows up, just don't like the look. I know others do it and that is fine, just not for me.

Although my convertibles are parked for the Winter, I still wouldn't try putting the top down in the 40s or below because everything is so stiff.

Not as stiff as you think. My Cobra has the cloth material though which makes it better. The vinyl top on the 90 can get interesting in cold weather. I spent more for the verts so the top is always down.

As for top down windows up I just laugh. Looks retarded.

Yes. It is not cloth but it is a synthetic cloth like material. Much more forgiving than vinyl.

Best weather? Night time. Cool evenings, no clouds, all the stars out. Bonus points for being able to see the milky Way. I love it.
Coldest was driving through the Colorado Rockies. Started out warm enough for some top down sight seeing, and ended up snowing on us. Not sure what the temp was but the snow started coming down pretty good. Eventually had to put the top up. Good times!
As long as it's not blistering HOT, the top is down on my car.

The best vert weather to me is 60 or warmer! The coldest I've ever gone is 50. I practically leave it down 24/7 in the spring!
