Actually, I can put two double bowling bags and two small suitcases, in my back area and still put my top down. I was surprised myself at how much space there is.

I never thought I'd have a convertible, or even wanted one. Now that I have one I love it! There's something very alluring about a warm summer night's cruise with the top down. I actually hate to drive it with the top up....well, maybe hate is too strong a word, but it's sure a lot more fun with the top gone. Besides, a coupe with the top off is much more windy and buffeting than a roadster with the top down. :yesnod:

I prefer the look of the coupes. I had a chance to buy a vertte but chose the coupe instead. Just my .02 :D

Vert, of course!!! And, I have ample room to carry a roll of Tums with me when I have the top down. :lol: Actually, though, I like the way the top looks when it's up, even tho mine stays down most of the time...

The roadster is the only way to travel (on warn nights and pleasant mornings) and with the top up the A/C makes it great on rainy days and nights. Therefore, it is dual-purpose fun transportation. I speak from experience, as mine is a daily driver (commuter convertible) that makes the 40-minute drive each way the best part of the day. 5 smiles

Have had my 92 roadster for about 4 1/2 years now and it's THE way to go. Unfortunately the great Washington weather doesn't always cooperate for top-down driving :( but the hardtop I just bought solves that! And the hardtop gets me in to track days now and the car really stiffens up on the autocross course :D

If the tail of the new vettes weren't so ugly i'd be driving a new convertible. I like my 1995 just as it is.

I thought a hard top was a convertable. :crazy:

Now, if your asking coupe or vert, well this has been done too much. And the conclusion is always coupe! :D For the C4s that is.

For the C2, it is very debatable. The split windows are pretty frikkin cool, but I must go with a vert.

For the C3, it is again very debateble, but I think the C3 also looks and is better in a coupe.
