Would you be driving your rag top into work with the roof off?


Scratchn has his Caterfield in work again today, with some randon sheet thrown over the top in case it rains. I used to drive the TVR on lovely crisp clear blue sky autumn days, but days like today NOPE.

Would you drive your caterfield to work today?

I dream of having a Caterham as my only car. Won't be too long.

Not for 30 miles each way, no but for a quick trip across town, yes :thumb:

when I had my 7 it was the only car I had for 18 months, and it only had a tonneau cover.. so I had no choice, rain, wind, snow... I had to bail out the footwells most mornings.... oh youth :rolleyes:

Nope! Mine has a thermal lock and won't free up until April at the earliest.

Bren,

I have to bail out my 106 at the moment after overnight rainfall. The door seal doesn't fit properly.

If I had my BM down here I'd have the roof down, although my 'do' would get messy. :whistle:

What was the weather like for you ? Cold and clear ?

If so, yes, I do :thumb: However, at 5:30am, it was cold and dark, so the roof stayed up :lol:

Late night / early hours of the morning, MX5 with the roof down, mid winter, Jap spec plastic tyres... Great fun.

A warm jacket, a beanie and the heater vents directed at the steering wheel and roof down every time. I did have to stop to put the roof up on the way home from the Ring at one point because spray from the trucks was covering the inside of the windscreen.

My S2000 and MR2 Roadster had their tops down quite a lot. Basically if it wasn't raining and if I wasn't going on a long journey then the roof was down.

:lol: I drove my new MX5 home at 9:30pm at night in really cold weather the other night with the roof down, just because i could and ive never had a convertible before and its never going to see a public road again :thumb:

I felt like a big homo, but actually quite enjoyed it :loser: :lol:
