Loads in East Yorkshire

Absolutely loads out today in the sun, 170's, 171's and 172's, I think I have seen the whole SLK range in a day!

Never fails to amaze me why people would buy a great convertible car like the SLk and then drive it with the roof up on a lovely summers day!!

I can sort of understand it on the motorway, especially if a long journey is planned, due to the road noise etc, but on a twisty country lane in the sunshine? Cummon!!

My B.I.L bought a Mazda MX5 ( mistake #1 ) 10 years ago. He laid out an extra 700 or so on the hard top.

He was round yesterday and I noticed that the rubber seals on the hardtop looked pretty rough.

He said the roof had not been off in over 9 years. He reckons he's done less than 200 of the 85000 on the car with the roof down!

Why? Why? Why?

It's funny because all the 170's and 171's I saw had the roof down, but nearly all the 172's had the roof up?
