Soft top easier than a hard top? I don't think so. Getting that sucker back on when it's in the 50's is a pain as it is, with it being barely above zero I'm afraid it wouldn't come close to going back on. Windows would probably shatter, top wouldn't stretch enough to fasten. Not worth the risk for me. Would be funny to take a spin through town though.
Just bring the top and doors in the house for the day to stay warm while you are outside freeeeeezing.
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. G.I. Joe!
I'll probably be doing this anyways, but on the 2nd. Last two years now I've driven up to Punxsutawney for groundhog's day topless. At like 3 in the morning, it's a two hour drive. Gets pretty cold. I'll see if I can get some pictures this year.

i did a toples doorless wheeling trip after thanksgiving, it was 13 degrees when i left the house, had hour and a half drive to the location then wheeled all day then drove back home, left house at 6am, didnt get home till 1am
no top 10 pts
no doors 5 pts
1 pt for every * below 75 (we will judge this off of the high of the day from weather.com unless you can prove otherwise)
for each article of clothing missing 5 pts (standerd clothing includes shirt/jacket/pants/gloves/beany or hat/socks/shoes/underwear)(must have proof!!!)
the reason for the above is to try and make it fair for those who are in warm weather
to enter the point system a picture is required! i know itll be hard to prove that you drove around with just pictures but the better you can prove that you did drive around topless ill add an extra 5 pts to your score. an example would be a picture at your house then one at work or the store then back at your house.
as of right now there may or may not be a prize. if someone is willing to set up a prize please let me know
well if you want to take off the doors to your XJ GC or car you can and post up and we will let the JF decide on whether or not it should be entered. if it does pass and is entered then ill think of a fair point system to go along with it
well, since its a vinyl electric fold down top, id have to heat up the garage which my dad would hate, pull the car in to let the top warm up, put it down, take pics, drive around, take more pics and then put it back in the garage to warm up the top and put it back up.
yeah im talking about the sebring so...
last time i did this was in 15 degree weather in the fall
the average around here now is 2 degrees with a -20 degree windchill...i dont think it would be worth it
