I'm wanting a convertable in the worst way.

Been wanting one for years.


The new Camaros haven't made it any easier to resist.

Looked hard at this one today....I've got the green light from the wife....arghhhhhh.






It's just not practical in the least.


At least with a Jeep, I could use it to hunt from.......


A buddy swears to me that I need to look at the Miata. He maintains the 2011 models have more legroom and headroom....I dunno.

Might be time for another Mustang (this would make my 4th....none have been convertalbe, though).


What are some other convertables that I should look at?




Fever has me in a bad way.

Dub, convertable and practical do not co-exist.

If you are not actually four-wheeling with your vehicle that takes you to hunt camp and back you can install a Class I receiver hitch and use a lightweight trailer to hunt out of. Save the "trunk" for Bow, Gun and other expensive equipment. All else in plastic containers on the trailer.

Take a gander here: http://www.edmunds.com/convertible/

Use their filters to narrow things down. 60 to choose from.

X2, if you are gonna get a convertible get a muscle car, and drive it like it is ment to drive, I cant stand being behind a old man in a vette in the fast lane, and me riding his tail in a minivan.


Drive it like you stole it!!!!

Just got back from shopping around.

Went by the Mazda dealer and ruled out the Miata right from the getgo. No freakin' way I'm driving that.

Mustang or Camaro is what it's looking like at this time....if we add it as a 3rd vehicle.


If we decide to keep it to 2 cars then I may just trade my truck for a Jeep Wrangler and not have to worry about speeding tickets and such.:)
 
Some minor sheetmetal work and a little paint and she will be like new again! :bounce:

Hope your son was ok. Did he get injured? Drivers side looks like it held up ok.

Id vote for a g37 convertible. Still practical and fun to drive and will definatly turn heads more than a mstang or camaro there everywhere. I have the 37s baby brother and let me tell you.. for a v6 there NICE! BUT if you have to get a rustang or camaro get a v8 atleast. :cool:

Might be more than you wanted to spend but a SL55 AMG might be worth a look.

Always liked these. The older 350Z's are sweet and you can find them fairly cheap (15-18K), but these 370Z's are awesome.
Those cars are awesome. A friend of mine has the g37 vert basically the 370 with two back seats. The VQ engine is hard to beat..and the sound...OH MAN!:cool:
