#18, C70 and 900/9.3 were too expensive I guess ?

#19, Because he had his fourth midlife crisis. ... he had had convertibles when he was younger, and his T-top '81 Vette just wasn't "open air" enough for him.

...and the Cabrio is a tight, taut, clean little package, compared to the bloated New Beetle.
My grandfather drove my dad's Cabrio for a bit, and remarked that it was the first car since my dad's '70 240Z that he could sit comfortably in, without having to "modify" how far back the seat could go. (My grandfather is 6'5" with long legs... his Buick, Escort, and old diesel Mercedes all had the driver's seat ripped out, the track for the seat physically moved back, and the seat re-installed just so he would have enough legroom to drive comfortably)

The Cabrio really had a SURPRISING amount of front-seat room... the backseat? Nnnnot as much.

#20, The Sebring, I've heard, was never designed/meant to be a convertible. It's just that Chrysler had to fulfill some market at the time..

#21, Well, that, and my dad isn't a "Swedish car" type of person... sure he's had Japanese cars, British cars, lots of American cars, and a surprising number of French cars, but Swedish cars? Nope.

Speaking of slow convertibles, does a 1992 Mercury Capri count?

#25, An Australian 323-based pseudo-Sports Car that was supposed to have 4 seats but didn't? Yeah, I'd say that qualifies.

#22, I drove a MKIII Golf a couple of years ago and damn, I must admit that they are surprisingly roomy. Pleasant drivers also + nice build quality. It just lacked electrical reliability, like most every VW's.

One bad thing about the VW Cabrio... this was 2001, and it still didn't have an available in-dash CD player... mainly because it was still using the MkIII dashboard (obviously), and the space for the radio wasn't large enough for any kind of CD player, only VW's crappy little factory tapedeck.

[edit] Another interesting thing... my father remarked how the valvetrain sound of the Cabrio reminded him SO MUCH of how a [original] Beetle engine sounded (he and his father would buy junked Beetles, repair them, and resell them over the summers when my dad was in high school)

Eh, I'd just like to state for the record that I love my '07 Corolla, the dealer was excellent, and I didn't get screwed on the trade-in. The dealership and their service department never gave me any shit (aside from the issue i had with my 2000's engine), and I'd much rather have the corolla over the civic.

#30, Same here. Plus they're not as popular with ricer asshats.
