    NEW POLL ~ Which is better. Verts or t-tops

    List your reasons why you think convertibles are better than coupes & tee-tops. Or, why you think they aren't. Personally I like the option of real privacy with the top up or letting it all hang out on a beautiful day or star & moon lit night with the top DOWN . Plus not having to worry about where to store those damn t-tops just in case it rains .

    I dont like the look of a rag top up or down personally. I like how ttops keep the shape of the car and you still feel like ur in a cockpit. Altho it can be a paint in the ass taking them off and on. Also, I could see how a vert might be more fun

    i find that t-tops create way more turbulence and noise compared to a convertible when both open.
    Also, posting this on a convertible section might provide a slightly biased response.

    well after driving both, i would have to say i just love the look of the ttop all the way to the spoiler, all though i do like the look of a vert with the top down i love driving a ttop. Although there are several things that can be done to a vert that would make it much better, maybe they can get it right if they bring it back.

    vert wins... we can open and close the top while driving... t-top owners can't.

    X2. I had a 96 Z28 vert prior to my 02 Z28 T-top car. I had the top down all the time. I've had the t-tops off twice in 2 years.

    Convertables for sure or full hardtop,,,,one or the other,,,,T-tops suck big time. Has nothing to do with looks for me,,,,
    I have a Vette with T-tops and absolutely cannot stand the damn things. You have to deal with taking them off,,,,no where to put them really, and if you have a trunk or rear hatch they just take up space,,,can't stop at the store and stack anything on top of them if you care at all,,,and if you leave them in the garage you have to be carefull not to scratch them, break them, and make sure you stick them in an area where family/friends won't be walking around. Then while your out driving you get caught in a pop up thunderstorm which is very common in Cincinnati
    I vowed to never buy another t-top car and from then on it's been nothin but convertables for me,,,or a solid roof car.
    Made it very hard for me to find an 02 SS convertable but I found one and parked it next to my 97 Z-28 convertable

    There is no way you can look at my SS vert and not say its beautiful with the top up or down. I'm not bragging, that's what I was thinking before I bought it. I used to see it your way but now that thought is long gone for me.
