      Not an excuse for a wiggly chassis. There were also reports that the top didn't block out sound very well at highway speeds, which is fairly important for a cruiser. Trust me, I have nothing wrong with a cruiser. The Chrysler 200 can use the same excuse- the interior is now acceptable, it has a folding hard top, and its affordable. Still not where it should be, which will hopefully fixed in the next-gen when Chrysler actually has money to work with.

      At the prices they were asking for them, it wasn't supposed to be a noodly piece of ****, either.

      Speaking of these, I saw a 1974 Eldorado convertible today, it was in line behind me at the car wash, same color scheme as this one:

      Whereas the helmet was meant to imply that the car was sporty enough to require racing gear, it could also be taken to mean that without the safety of a steel top, this new car must always be driven with head protection.

      My thoughts exactly.

      I really like the Reatta and the Allante Convertibles.
      I already have a Reatta, and when I move back to Calgary I would love to get an Allante as well.
