    My car isn't an SC (so I wont do the poll), but I have a sunroof and an opinion on them. My 91 XR7 has the sunroof and I almost never use it. I don't like the hot sun on me, so don't want it open on a sunny day. Don't want it open on a cold day. The ONLY time I like it open is on a hot night. It's pretty nice then, but I think the inside of a car stays cleaner (from dust) if you keep all the windows closed, so even on hot nights, I prefer A/C over an open moonroof. I guess in my case, "moonroof" is a better name since I only like it at night. I've had the car since 1993 and have used the roof maybe 5 times.
    Kids love the roof! I'm single and had a divorced lady (that I liked) and her kid and niece in the car. They wanted it open. So in that case, the roof was cool to have.
    I've had wind noise in the car for a long time now from the bad weatherstrip. I replaced it but it still makes noise. I have to adjust it, AGAIN. I think sunroofs are sort of cool. but at the same time, a very overrated option. The people with the 68-70 Cougars that have them really like em, especially the G cars. I guess because they are relatively very rare compared to our cars.
    I'm a little surprised that they make the car less stable for racing. How fast are you making those turns?? But if it adds weight, that's bad. Like someone at mercurycougar dot net said "if it doesn't make it go faster, it makes it go slower". I guess a hole in the roof could be less safe in a bad accident.

    Don't like any type of holes in my roof. They will eventually leak!

    I have had SCs with sunroofs in the past. My current 92 doesnt have one. It's nice in the fall but as stated before they eventually leak and I hate the wind noise at high speeds.

    Love the look and the options it presents.

    We have 2 mths of heat and the rest is in a state of flux. Nothing like running the heat full with the roof open.

    Cover up does everything it should to protect interior.

    Smoking in the car is a viable option.

    You get to beat the groundhog in the spring.

    Interesting option with a date.

    Car is in motion, water runs down hill. Drill the back of the rocker, repaint the hole and enjoy.

    My 1991 has a sunroof, it leaks on the drivers side.

    I'm not a huge fan of convertibles, T-Tops, or sunroofs (I don't like weak points on a car) Since mine came with a sunroof, I might as well try to enjoy it. Once it doesn't leak I'll probably like it more.

    Why not fix it? Bill E at SC Performance sold me a new sun roof gasket a few months ago.

    With my A/C not working (and my passenger window not able to roll down) the sunroof is a real life saver in the summer. Between the driver window, roof and decent cruising speeds, there's enough breeze to keep fairly comfortable below 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Gonna get my window and A/C fixed up before next summer, it was a bit difficult to stay cool at 90 degrees in stop and go traffic

    I have an 89 SC without and just picked up another 89 SC with. At 6'2" I prefer the headroom over having the sunroof...as a matter of a fact I may weld a piece of metal over the hole since I have to paint the newest acquisition. It needs a headliner too so.........
    I don't think I have ever owned a car that was finished---unless it was totaled.

    I guess the sunroof is a good and a bad for me. I'm also 6'2", so the roof is a little low for me when driving (I have to lean forward or hunch down a bit and tilt my head to keep from hitting the ceiling) I wonder if there's a way to adjust the seats to be a little lower...like just half an inch or so.

    Moonroof definitely. Can live without it but it's a nice luxury to have

    Hi
    I have it in my car and I'm really happy with that especially in summer. In winter you can't see the difference, its still cold anyway, but its up to you. It's not really expensive as well.
