Soft top....up or down?
As in the title, really.
In this current glorious weather , I have been pootling about in the spider with the top down. Mainly local stuff.....picking up bits and bobs, the weekly shop at Tesco.
If you have (had) a convertible, do you leave it with the top down (obviously nothing left inside) and a Crooklock on - or do you put the top up beforehand? BTW, my main town is Carmarthen, in Wales - not downtown Chicago or the likes. We have an extremely low crime rate around here. Again, just whilst shopping etc. Iím not suggesting leaving the car for hours on end......
Back in the 80s, I had a Lancia Beta Spyder as my daily. Unless it was chucking ti down, I never put the top up and never for one moment worried some ill may befall the car. Was that because:
a) I was young and naive
b) The world was, in fact, a better place
c) Stupidity ruled and I got away with it
d) I could still do it today and all would be fine.
I would be interested to hear other opinions......
