Would like clarification on a 'vert term

Recommended Posts

This has puzzled me since I was first aware of cars (circa 1905...).

When one says the top is down, does that mean it is in the stowed position and the passenger compartment is open to the air?  Or does it mean that it is down and latched to the windshield header?

When the top is up, does that mean it is latched to the windshield or in the stowed position?


Let me check your shorts!

Down is stowed....because when it rains at the drive-in, it's a scramble to put the top up!

Not that you have to worry about that anymore in Tuscon...not much anyway.
