How about you try living in the northern U.S. before you comment.

I have! I grew up in the Northeast... there mr. Smarty. I visit family in the North on a regular basis. I have a really good idea of who buys converts in the North.

You may have grown up in the Northern part of the U.S., you may visit it on a regular basis, but I still live here.

ewww the CLK cabrio is more gurly than the new BMW 3series cabrio. what we need is an E-class Cabrio.

And yeah, i agree with the jumping around in price, a bentley azure, 2nd hand is not cheap!!!

What's a convertible used for? In my opinion its just to have fun.
You want something nice to drive, not too obnoxious, and above all, should make you feel good.
For me thats a 1970s Triumph TR6


if you want to seat 4 people, then get an old beemer, an old beemer has respect.


But hey! if you got money to burn, baby there is only 1 way to go... Drophead Phantom

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Being that we have so few months of "good" weather, people try to make the most of it. Seems like there is a decent amount of bike and convertibles in MI.

I wouldn't touch a Sebring with a ten-foot pole, much less a Sebring convertible!!
