John T. Reed, a real estate investing author, has compiled a list of important things to remember if you're going to own a convertible.  While the list probably isn't new, or short, I've posted some of my favorite reminders below:

- Do not use the windshield washer or headlight washer when the top is down.

- If you are in the habit of giving other drivers the finger, lose that habit when you have the top down on a hard-top convertible and completely if you have a rag top.

- Put the top up and close all the windows and trunk tight before your go through a car wash. (Does anyone really make this mistake?!  If so, I want to see it on YouTube.)

- Do not turn on the rear window defogger when the top is down and the rear window is in the trunk.
