You stay dry above 35 mph?  :-\ There was a Mythbuster's episode where they had to drive like at 90 mph to stay dry. But I guess it depends on the car. It can work with a roadster but mine has a back seat so I don't think it could stay dry at any (safe) speed.

Yes, mine's a roadster, and they somehow managed to keep the exchange of inside and outside air to a minimum when top's down and the windows are up.

That also makes it possible to drive comfortably with the top down in very cold weather with just the heater and the clothes needed to walk from the car to the final destination.

Nice to have aerodynamics on my side for a change!

Rain drop size play a role here.  The mass of the rain drop goes up by the cube of size.  The cross sectional area rises by the square.  So bigger drops are more difficult to bend over the windscreen.
Sadly for ta0 all things are bigger in Texas.
