Gonna have to think about this one........too many to chose from. Weirdly, I just thought readily of some of the worst! Lexus SC430 sprang to mind!

In no particular order..........

Aston Martin DBS
Dodge Viper
Chevvy Camaro 1SS (Can't get the supercharged LS-1 in convertible)
Triumph Stag (V8)
Jaguar XJ-S V12

There's plenty more - although some 'verts look pretty awful with the top up (early 1-series, now 2-series for example!!)

As much as I adore interceptors, just can't get my head round the Vert Image

I'm not a big lover of convertibles
unless they've been designed from the ground up to be top less they normally end up a floppy noisey overweight version of the hard top it started out to be (and their more likely to leak water)
So that rules out most sports cars for me
So it would be a grand tourer or a toy

1) jag xjs ( late model full convertible opposed to the cabriolet) and only a V12
2) Porsche speedster 356
3) AC Cobra
4) some old roofless hot rod /classic American
5) jag e-type (3.8 series 1) but I would rather have the lightweight but that had a roof
Life's to short to be driving boring cars
It's all about the old school
