Not so bad IMO, in fact put normal wheels on and it would be OK from the rear!! :-D

Hideous!

I think there is a contest among car designers to out-hideous one another.

Identical to my daughter's 'bananamobile' :)
Except for the wheels.

I have a bit of a liking for the SAAB convertible. Here's another example from a hot day in Helmsley. I think the back end could be improved, looks a bit heavy and in need of lengthening and squashing down a bit.

Looked on my backup drive but no pictures found. They are probably on one of the mountain of CDs and DVDs here.
Daughter with the yeller SAAB now has a topless Megane - tintop type :)

Her elder sister has an ancient Ford Escort cabriolet, almost as old as she is, and a newish MX5 daily driver.
Again, no pictures of any of them.

Here's another SAAB convertible, up for sale at Brightwells and with a little badge on the grill which makes it more than the average SAAB convertible

Apart from my daughter's Saab, Megane and Escort, the only other ragtops I have driven were
Triumph_Spitfire_MkIV_in_Morges_2012_-_2.jpg
and
+8.jpeg
Both great fun although the +8 was quite scary.

The landlord of our local hotel had a plus 8 it twisted in the middle when you jacked it up. :shock: I have a photo of the car here somewhere.
