It looks better with the top on anyway... the lines are gorgeous.
But like I said, I get way too much sun on my motorcycle. When I'm in the car, I want that roof over my head...
My '06 Sol was not my first convertible, by the way. A '67 Mustang convertible carried me through five years of college, including two years in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The top was so raggedy that, if it snowed overnight, there would be a little pile of snow on the driver's seat... Once, I put the top down in 25 degree weather and the plastic back window exploded... Hey, we figured, people were riding snowmobiles, why not a convertible? (yeah, I was a dumb Southerner...)
But the whole time I was driving that car I lusted after a Trans Am... a coupe, of course. Finally got one after graduation. (no, I did not have a mullet...) Later I had a Firebird Formula for a decade. In my mind, my '09 Coupe is the spiritual successor to those old Firebirds.
Weird? Yes. But I'm happy.
