I took my new 78 40 out while it was snowing on Sunday. It felt like I had the top off...snow was coming right through my janky 1980's installed sun roof. Time to get out the silicon!

Bummer....I broke down and put the top and doors on because it will be cold tomorrow and snowing. So sad to see it all bundled up!

I cracked my window the other day cause the heated seat had my heiney too hot.

If I get a 40 next summer I'll give it a go for the winter and see how tough I am. My money is on "not very" though.
