Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    I'm amazed and the number of people that DON'T put their tops down. I have a Miata and have it down unless its below 50 or raining, but I can't believe the number of people I see in convertibles in absolutely perfect 75 degree weather with the tops up. I guess I understand if you have a mustang as maybe the convertible option was pretty cheap, but for a car like the Miata - its sole purpose in life is to be driving with the top down. Its a perfect car that way. With the top up, its just a tightly fitting small call.

    I think many of the people driving convertibles with the top up in perfect weather are probably kinda like the people who go out and buy a pet right after they see a movie starring that kind of animal. They make an impulsive emotional decision, then 3 days later realize they don't actually like the outside.

    I've got a different conundrum. I've got a Boxster S, but I've also got a CBR600RR. I like driving top-down, but if it's nice enough for that it's nice enough to take the bike. So I drive the Boxster top-down that rare sliver of times when it's nice out but I need trunk space.
