I'm a fan of both convertibles and T-top cars. After having a couple of Mustang Conv.s I never want to be without one. After we sold her last Mustang, we bought the Triumph, and now that the girls are big enough to run around with me, we've got a Wrangler.
At the same time as we had our 98 V6 Mustang conv, I also picked up a little 97 Cavalier Convertible. It was was also red with a black top. This may offend some, but in convertible guise, the Cavalier was a much nicer car to drive. I had more room, the chassis was equally as flimsy as the 'Stang and the seats were infinitely more comfortable. The back seat was also better too.
The Cavy, Sunbird, and Lebaron were are average cars made a lot more fun by lopping the roof off. I don't they are anything to be embarassed about it.
