Too early for top-down driving? Not here in Florida.

Some of you are still shoveling snow–but not our fellow Floridians.

We had clear skies and balmy conditions for this Monday’s Orlando Roadsters evening meet, so we headed over in our Garage Rescue Miata.

Why do we make these trips? To see friends, check out cool cars and enjoy an evening drive with the top down. Plus it’s a good setting for making some pictures.

And we know what you’re asking: How’d everyone react to our new Rays valve caps? As expected, they were a hit.

Enjoy the pics and hope to see you at an upcoming event–always the last Monday of the month at Ace Cafe Orlando.

As with any sport, it's all about appropriate clothing.

We had a low 70's day yesterday so I cruised home form work with the top down.

If it's not actively raining more than a drizzle, I regularly put the top down all the way down to freezing. Seat heater on max, foot heater vents selected on max, hot tub mode is the best.

It was overcast here but 62* so top was dropped for the ride home last night and tonight.

I raced my roofless Miata a couple of weeks ago in our Winter series.

Had the Miata out today with the top down. Right now, for about a week, it’s perfect convertible weather here in Central Florida.

My son was driving his ND Club with the top down last weekend in Pittsburgh. 60 degree and sunny.
