Default Convertible Sub Section

Administrator savewave was kind enough to let us try a sub-section for Convertibles/Roadsters/Drop-tops or what ever you want to call them as a sticky for a month to see if their was enough traffic to justify it's existence.
My own experience has been frustrating trying to find info that applies to verts only and having to sift thru hundreds of posts trying to find a owner with a soft top car to chat with. Let's see if we can generate enough posts on here to make it permanent.
I've owned about twenty Vettes and only one was a coupe. When I was looking for my current '14 Z51 3LT M7 MRC roadster, I was flexible on the color but the manual roadster was the only car I considered.
Help me make this work!

I too would like this, not easy to find info unless the title has a "Vert" in it.

Owned 2 verts, 2001 C5 and now a 2014 triple black A6, 1LT.

thanks for taking the initiative.

I've had Corvettes since 1972 - all convertibles - so I welcome this group. Here's my current two:

Over the years I've had 15 Corvettes. All but one were soft tops. Here's my current 2014 3LT A6 VERT!:

I think it's a grert great idea I would definitely participate. I drive a 14 Z51 M7 3LT vert. Besides, for once, we could lose all the BS argument about which is better, a vert or a coupe.
