Last Tuesday night it snowed in Raleigh, NC. On Wednesday and Thursday, it didn't get out of the 30's and the nighttime lows were in the teens. Finally on Friday it warmed up into the low 50's. Yesterday (Saturday) it was in the upper 60's. I put the top back on my rally red/silver cabrio to go to the grocery store. Didn't bother to take the roof rails off.

Today, it got into the lower 70's. My husband and I took the rails off and just spent 2 hours riding around town. Wow, I'm ready for spring!!!!! We got lots of great smiles from passengers in other cars and from people out walking and biking. What a great ride.

We are looking forward to spring when we can take a nice two-hour trip to the beach with the top down.

55° is warm enough for me! I'm enjoying mine before it gets too hot to put the roof back. It seems a bit odd to run the A/C with the roof back, but I have to admit to having done it a few times last Summer.

Enjoy the ride!

Aileen: You won't believe how different Rosie will look when you take the rails off. I'm like you, the top is coming down quite often if it's 50 degrees or above!

Hi Becky- I have been joyriding in Rosie with the top down- have not taken rails off yet. Anything over 50 degrees and it's convertible time! Aileen
