Bill, consider going out to a car rental place and take out a convertible for the week-end during the summer. I have had two in my lifetime, now on my third and I am sixty-seven. Mind you these are 'British' sports cars. My current one is a '1969 MGB Mark II' which I only drive during the week-end summer time (May to Late August). Convertibles are not meant to be the 'only' car you drive, but the 'fun' car of memories.
