    Took the top off the Jimmy today. My first time driving a K5 topless. It was a blast! Drove to Sonic, took our food down to the local park and ate on the tailgate listening to some tunes.

    I think next weekend, weather permitting, we're going to the drive-in topless.

    I was threatening Heather that I was going to do that as well.

    We'll see how it goes. Supposed to be in the 30's at night here (when I'm at work) in a few days. I wish the weather would make up its mind and get warm.

    I need to ghetto-rig a bikini top for the back to keep some rain out, we'll see how that project goes.

    OK, I guess this might sound kinda "smart" and that is not my intention at all but I just don't see the purpose in taking the top off of a K5 that is not a full convert. I have a '90 K5 and have thought about taking the top off, but I will still be under a "top" even though the back seat will be open. Tell me what I'm missing b/c I may just have to take that freakin thing off :D . One advantage to mine is that I do have a sunroof I could take out. That would be like a 7/8ths convertable right?

    Visibility out the rear, sunlight in the cab, better airflow, more space for tailgating...

    Hey, those are some well-traveled trim rings :haha: ... I think I sent him a set or two last year.

    Glad they got used! :D

    Cool!

    I hope to do the same this summer! Take the top off and enjoy the sun and breeze.

    I can't wait to be topless again:eek1: . Or in my case nearly topless, but having red hair and light skin (And the fact I live in Arizona) I wouldn't have it any other way.:D

    Take it off and you will see the diff. I've had both full and 1/2 top and with the '73 I usually ran a bikini top anyway. You do loose a little of the "cool" factor but the usability of the 1/2 cab is higher, especially on a DD. Just my $.02 after doing it both ways.
