Following my big MX-5 restoration I have no qualms about using my car in all weathers. Heater up, roof down, even in the snow it’s great fun. I get some funny looks but perhaps that’s the pith helmet. Here’s a pic from a recent jaunt;

It seems I’m not the only old cabrio driver enjoying the snow. Here, not far from MotorPunk HQ, sits this beautiful Triumph TR6, used in all weathers and parked in the street. I snapped it (iPhone only, sorry) when passing in the MX-5. I wonder how good that roof is? I’m sure the straight six kicks out enough heat to thaw it all out pretty quickly. It’s wonderful to see classics like this being enjoyed in all weathers. Don’t you think?
