Spring Top Poll: Up Down Metal Cloth Headspace?

Several days of 70 F here in the northern hemisphere begs the question. What is over your head right now when you get into your 107?

Hardtop hasn't been on the car since I brought it home several years ago. I put the soft top up when the car is put away yearly for winter storage, but the first day out of storage, the soft top comes down and stays down throughout the spring, summer, fall driving season.

Another poll:
Is your Hard Top about as useless as "tits on a boar hog" (as they say in the South)?

Rag Top or No Top forever !!

Were Hard Tops not important for resell, I think I would somehow get rid of all 3 tops I have now. As far as I am concerned, I never use them and they take up a lot of space in the garage.

Hard top is on permanently as it has a nice crack in the glass. The second it comes off, it's probably going to complete it's spread and destroy the back windshield requiring a soft top replacement.

Not that that's a bad thing. I just had to buy a new laptop. Have to space out the big purchases!

I'm looking forward to scrapping the hardtop. The f***er weirdly has rust and leaks in weird places.

I am hoping for completion of vent pod work tonite and reassembly of lower heater box, center console, seat, instrument cluster, steering wheel, and etc. by end of the day Saturday. Then I can do some serious driving - maybe next week. Of course, with the top down - temp is >80 the last 2 days!
