And old mate used to have a Dodge Challenger or Charger convertible. It looked and felt ‘right’ with the roof down -long and low like it had been designed that way – and all wrong with the roof up, like an umbrella on a motorbike.
Lovely car rarely saw it with the roof upPosted 3 years agoAlexSubscriber
We had one of these:

The problem was it was only really suitable for people of less than 5ft6. With the roof on, I was basically guessing where the road was through ‘reading the runes of the roof lining’. It was a present for my wife tho and I found I loved the whole open top thing (more than she did ironically. Also fitting the roof during periods of ‘weather uncertainty’ was a bit fraught.
Now we have one of these. At 10 degrees, heater on, roof down and – the best bit – the poor citizens of Cheltenham get to listen to my rubbish 90s rock collection. Double win 🙂

Hardtop is great. When it rains, stick it up, just like being in a ‘normal car’. I’m a middle aged man and have long forgone any concept of ‘dignity’ so happy to drive around having fun.Posted 3 years agoTiRedMember
Had an Eos for four years and 85K miles. Heated seats and warm air on the legs and it was roof down when sunny an cold. It has a huge sun roof too, so always felt bigger inside.
I used to like commuting home up the M40 in the dark with the roof down. too. It was, however, pretty miserable and cold in the back seats. Convertibles should really be two seaters.Posted 3 years ago
