(adverb) Riding in a convertible car with the top down, but the windows up. Usually done in an effort to either: reduce the amount of air turbulence (and/or blow back), increase the seating compartment temperature or cut down on the amount of road noise.

Coined by poker author Mark "The Red" Harlan; a reference to John F. Kennedy often riding in his parade convertible with the top down and the windows up. (Ironically, the President was *not* riding Kennedy style on the day he was assassinated -- all the windows were rolled down that day.)

Sometimes shortened to just "Kennedy."
To fully enjoy the fine winter day, King Feddy buttoned up his jacket, turned the heater to full blast and drove his ragtop Studebaker Kennedy style.

Coined by poker author Mark "The Red" Harlan in the mid-60's in reference to John F. Kennedy often riding in his parade convertible with the top down and the windows up. (Ironically, the President was *not* riding Kennedy style on the day he was assassinated -- all the windows were rolled down.)
