    IMO verts only look good if it's really a roadster like the Vette vert. Anything short of that with a drop top and more room than for two people screams mid-life crisis on a budget or it's a chick car.

    No hating just stating my opinion and observations. Some people like the big verts and that's fine. Just not my taste.

    Never had a vert and I think alot of them do look ugly I have a hardtop right now but I have had t-tops on my old camaro and I agree (Pain in the ASS)

    As far as the verts go If you get the right color combo they do look really nice.....Also it MUST be an SS cuz it looks much meaner as a vert.....Also I love the tanue covers for some reason and the roll bar Makes me wanna----->

    I like it exactly how you said it and wanted to do it myself but didn't come across one for the right price

    Overall........SS Vert roll bar and tanue covers are nice I say go for that!

    No mid life here. Shit I'm only 36. I make plenty and the wife has her own business. It was just a good deal that I made happen that's all. One owner in his 50's. A 99 M6 with 70k on it and talked him down $10,500? Tell me who wouldn't buy it? As for the owner, he might fit your stereo type for vert owners. He almost started to wimper when he handed me the keys. And ya you do kind of sound like a hater.

    Thanks, she ain't no virgin. Got a coupe scatches, scuffs, and chips, but the top seems like new. Runs and shifts great. I enjoy her.

    I voted T-Tops.

    They just seem much more practical to me. I'd say they offer about 80% of the fun of a convertible without all the drawbacks of a soft top, being insurance, security, looks, ect.

    I have seen several posts with this argument...T Tops v/s Convertable.
    Here's my 2 cents...Who cares about how much wind gets in the car with the top down? Are you really concerned about your hairdo? Convertables are the way to go. They look great and on a nice day, there is no substitute for them. Now comes the "Verts aren't as stiff or stable as a hardtop. That is true, and also easily fixed with some SFC's welded in. Mine did the trick. I think people who say Verts aren't as good as T Tops are crazy or couldn't find one when they bought their F Body, or couldn't afford one. And honestly, with a little looking, you can find them cheaper...I paid $15K for mine 3 years ago. I have been caught in the rain on several occasions. I live in Florida and rain storms come in fast. I simply pull over and raise the top. I have even done it in stop and go traffic on the interstate. My point is, it is easier to press a button and have a roof than running to your trunk. Convertables Rock!

    Wow very nice droptop. I have never seen a orange vert. I personally dont like droptops not because they look bad but /i dont like the feeling of being so open. I kinda like bein in a cockpit. makes me feel secure.

    What lowering kit do u have on it?
