How about both!
Pros and cons of the vert

Pros: fresh air, absorb smells of nature, just you the engine and your exhaust! Fun in the summer topless.

Cons: more needy, top has to be replaced eventually, not as quiet on the interstate, not fun when raining.

I'd love to have both to be honest. I think next Mustang for me is a coupe.

I'm going hardtop all the way. I mean don't get me wrong but I would love a vert but it's only good in summer and how often would I keep it down. Plus I'm not a fan of the look.

Do you think if somebody had a vert and got tired of it, you think you could switch it to a hard.?

Bodyshops make anything possible! But selling a hard top nd buying a vert is easier!

Soft top! If it rains you can pull over and put it up. The hard top you would leave at home.

You can have them put in but it would be pretty expensive id think. It would be awesome if they were an option on the mustangs from the factory

Re: Convertible or hardtop.?

Are you going to do any track stuff? If not, convertible....

I have 2 convertibles right now, probably going to sell the 99 and pick up
a boss 302 when the 13's come out. I'm looking to change only because
the newer cars have a lot more shoulder room than the sn95's do.
