    I would love it as long as it is only produced as a 2 door. Also needs some chassis bracing which would add some weight, but may equal the weight of the 5 door.

    First thing I thought of was a AUDI the it became a PT cruiser.. I would have to see one live before I said no but I am just not feeling it right ATM

    Does this come with a factory option for a Regier gravel suspension upgrade? :angel:

    I find it funny that this is a "x-tomi design" when all they did was badly Photoshop the roof off.

    Just when we thought we had seen the last of the hideous PT Cruiser convertibles...Very few cars that were not designed from the ground up to be convertibles, look good after the fact. Need a convertible that does not look like ass and that is affordable & handles, get a Miata

    I would add an integral rollbar with stock mounting height shoulder belt and a nice, padded covering on the bar. Probably could position the outer Finnish panel with some gasket material to provide a better seal against the Door glass. It worked really well on the Escort cabriolets that kharman did in the eighties.

    That's a no... I don't care for convertibles in general but some cars are best left with a top on them. If for some reason I got a Miata, I'd get a hard top for it and leave it on all the time.

    Yeah, the way these cars get driven it better have a roll bar.

    If this were actually done, it would need a different rear suspension design. No room to stack the top. Unless they just piled it up, like the old Golf cabrios did. That would be too fugly for most buyers. The OneFord plan has made these boutique models unneeded. The Mustang convertible can be exported to fill this role. The Escort cabrios in the eighties were never considered anything more than a college coeds car. They had RS bumpers and side skirts in many cases but most had automatic transaxles.

    Nope. It's like a pretty girl with an undercut hairdo.

    Hmnn. In the early 90's I dated a young woman who had decided that a clean shaven head was the kind of look that worked for her. That and a tat that went from her shoulder down around her left breast (how I know that is a story for the penthouse forum, not here!) Ending at her navel. She was ALOT of fun to be with. So, I don't get your point about her hairstyle being indicative of relative "funness" or a fiesta st convertibles relative "funness" if one were to exist at all.
