Sometimes imitation is the highest form of flattery. I don't care, it was bound to happen. I think the raising and lowering of the hardtop on the SL is the coolist thing to see when you're stopped at a traffic light.

Here are some of the first other than the 57 Ford Skyliner:

1936 Peugeot 402L Eclipse and a 58 Corvette prototype that didn't make it into production.

Law-makers are supposed to regulate in the interest of the public as opposed to regulating in the interest of the regulated party.
If it says Pratt and Whitney on the outside it better say Martin Baker on the inside.
