      +1; Did the same thing myself. A soft top and doors 2003; we pulled the sides and back, left the top up, and ran it like a 1920's touring car most of the time. It took a real heavy rain to do much...

      Smallest possible convertible, but as far as power goes, it can't be done. I don't like tickets (CDL), so I follow the speed limits pretty closely, but have found that driving 'old tech' quickly is a...

      IIRC, that was developed from Ricardo work, and was expressed as an optimal range from 440cc to 600cc per cylinder. VW used it on their first watercooled designs as to bore/stroke ratio, but kept on...

      If you're coming from that direction, cross over in Windsor, Ontario. Huge time savings over the south shore option/better roads.:thumbup:

      A few notes;

      Any summer drive out to the cape or along coastal Maine is a nightmare for traffic. Ferry out from Boston to P-town if the cape is a 'must do', then I-95 to at least Bangor (Bar...

      I'm hoping that the afterlife, at least, will have a rustproof BMW 2002 or its equivalent waiting there for me...:)

      1985 Honda CRX, and the 'additional dealer markup' all those $%#@$ hung on them. I haven't seriously considered another Honda product since. All the others have had 'more than one'.:)
