Family-sized convertibles for the end of summer

Motoring Research Logo By John Moroney of Motoring Research | Slide 1 of 14: Four door convertibles are a rarity these days and it’s usually blamed on a lack of structural rigidity. In the sixties, it was common to see four door convertibles wallowing and flopping along the highways and byways of America. Then those snowflake Millennials came along and ruined everything, what with their obsessions with “handling,” “ride,” and “not dying” because floppy cars are horrendous at things like “turning” and “stopping,” and “not running into stationary objects and then exploding.” Four seats, however, can be done quite handily, with style and performance to spare. Pick up one of these babies, and the whole family can enjoy the feeling of the wind and scenery galloping by, accompanied by the thrilling simfonia meccanica of a car that is one with the road. Or, perhaps just blast “Barney’s Greatest Hits” at every stoplight, unmuffled by windows or a roof, and watch the other parents laugh their rears off in loving camaraderie.
