My convertible is a 1961 Porsche 356B Roadster. I have owned it for 23 years and put about a thousand miles on it every year. It's slow by modern standards but handles well and is a delight to drive.

this is my first mustang convertible, it is a 1965 Shelby GT 350 with a modified 289 engine, it only has 28,000 miles on it, I love cruising around town with the top down, I sure get a lot of people waving and beeping at me. Deborah Rugg Washington Pennsylvania
Friend had this car sitting in his garage for 20 years, not running and missing the floor boards. Got her up and running in 2016. I have had MGA's for over 30 years and enjoy driving them when ever possible. Finally install the top this year, still have not used it yet, open top motoring is the only way to go!
1959 Corvette Warners New York
My story starts when I was 13 years old and built a model of a 1959 Corvette. My dream was someday to own a Corvette. A tour of military duty in Viet Nam, college, marriage, a house and three boys kept pushing my dream car further an further away. Well 42 years after building that model the kids are gone and I am a proud owner of a 1959 Corvette. The "Corvette Barn" (owners Bob and Nancy) a local Corvette dealership is where it found me. I was hoping for a 1962 project Corvette and asked Bob if he had anything that might interest me. Taking me into the back building, sitting in the corner with parts piled all around it was a 1959 Dark green with a gold cove and red interior Corvette. A true project car just like the one I built from a plastic model when I was 13. My wife Jane encouraged me to go for it and I did. The car sat in a barn for 30 year, was off the frame and needed restoration. The car is still in progress and I drive it every chance I get. I have 905 hours into restoration and love driving it. I tell people when I take them for a drive that they are in for a "driving experience not just a drive."
A salesman at the Chevrolet dealership in Raleigh, NC bought this '69 RS Camaro convertible brand-new for his wife but she didn't like it because it doesn't have AC, so after just 2 years she was ready to sell it and get something else. It was the fall of 1971: My dad went to the Chevrolet dealership looking to buy a convertible sports car, met the salesman with this car for sale and bought it directly from him. Dad drove it for the next 15 years until 1986 when he gave it to me as my high school graduation gift, and I've had it ever since. Never raced, modified, or restored... just maintained "as-is".
We have owned our Black over Tan 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder since new. It has a well cared for 35,000 miles and spends it’s cold salty Iowa winters in a 62 degree heated garage. The car is a blast to drive and gets its exercise about once a week. We could have traded this car off many times for something with more power then the 138 we have, but you can’t get much better handling and Toyota reliability!
