    If nothing else, all three of these are good.

    1st Saturday of every month-
    Daytona Flea Market Cruise In 9AM-2PM

    Iíve had numerous convertibles over the years and there is nothing like a drop top, but I think Iíve had my last one. Itís just too hot. I get maybe two weeks a year of nice 72 degree weather. The other 50 weeks itís hot as hell or too cold and Iíve got to run the AC or heater. When I was younger the heat didnít seem to bother me. Back in the 70ís and early 80ís I had cars with no AC, now I wouldnít even think about it. Must be global warming, canít be Iím getting old. Lol.

    Re: Gotta Love Winter...

    Having recently spend a whole month in relatively mild winter (for twin cities) in MN I really feel for car guys trying to keep the cars clean in usa winters. It would be a nightmare. We drove Ford Explorer (black) and that thing would be cake on with salt and rd grime after each day. Where i live in sunny Brisbane, qld Australia (similar to Northern FL) the only things that i have to worry about are summer showers that turn car dust layers into visible water dust pools.

    Cheers

    Old pirate. My family and I have vacationed in Clearwater beach a couple times, the last being 12 or so years ago. We really enjoyed it

    Thanks to all you Florida Autopians for rubbing it in the face of all of us Northern hicks freezing our butts off!
    Too cold for you guys is not being able to put the top down on your convertible!!
    That`s OK. You can deal with your various insect pests all year round, like cockroaches and termites.

    Yes, it is finally below zero Fahrenheit in the shadows of the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. (No mosquitos or wood ticks! Don`t laugh, unless you`ve been outside in Wisconsin in late spring thru early fall.)

    And yes, my vehicle, a black 2006 Ford Freestyle, is now wearing its ermine winter white from all the road salt traffic film, along with the other winter-driven vehicles in Wisconsin. It`s bad and it will not be washed until it warms up above 25įF (which might be a while, according to the long range forecast of continuous Artic weather)

    And speaking of winter driving and winter tires, do any of you Autopians have some of the new All-Season Winter-Rated "hybrid" tires on your vehicles?
    We had a replacement window salesperson at our house endorse his Toyo Celsius tires on his Honda Accord as a great tire to run all year round without having to change over to a dedicated winter-rated tire. I know Goodyear is making one, as does Michelin.
