Topless In Cold Weather

MotoringFile's Gabe took the MINI JCW Roadster out for open top days in the high 30's and low 40's.  He reports, in part:
I’ve snuck a few open top days in with the temps hovering in the high 30′s and low 40′s. The key is to do it in town and keep the highway time down to a minimum.
