Top up or down for car show
The factory I work at is going to have a family fun day later this year. It includes an employee car show. (No prizes or judging).

I am going to bring the convertible. What do you guys think, assuming it's not raining... do I show it with the top up or down? The top was just replaced so it is in great condition. These look so good with the top up but it's a convertible, the whole idea is fun in the sun!

What do you guys think?

Mustang Club of America requires the top to be up for judging, but I always go to the shows with the top down. That's what the converts are all about!

I always like the topless look Blush
Tough call. They do look good with the top up. I would have to say for showing top down.
I say it is up to You. If it was mine the top would be down.
It isn't an MCA show so I'd have the top down and the boot on and have the the windows down. Just an opinion. Chuck
I like the top down look but don't always do that at shows and cruises. But only because black comfort-weave seats absorb a lot of sun and as C9zx pointed out, "boot cover on" is better. My boot is pretty beat up and doesn't fit right.

Show up with it up and put it down and boot it at the appropriate time during the get together. Those without convertibles love to see how they actually work!

Just cruising along minding our own business when BAM!!! The LAWS show up.
It usually depends on my mood. I´ve got no preference. Sometimes I like to show that it is a convertible, sometimes I don´t as they look really good with the top up.
