convertibles
#1
While I'm not a convertible guy myself, If I ever was going to buy a convertible of any make or year, it would have to be a 71-73 Mustang. For some reason they just look so bad ass. "Our" body style just lends itself so well to the convertible look. Most convertible cars seem to say chic car but not the 71-73 Mustangs. You vert guys are lucky to have them.

71 Mustang fastback

If I we're to get one, it would have to be a 73 with a 351 and a Top Loader! Black with a black top would be cool!

I originally had a 69 convertible. I got this car was not because I liked it better than the 69 but because it had more interior room. I could not get comfortable driving the 69 (6'2" 250 lbs). I also liked the fact that I could get a 351C in this body style. My 69 had a built 302, but it was now where near as powerful as my 408 is now. I have had friends say the the 69 convertible looked like a girls car while this one is definitely not a girls car.

No other mustang convertible looks as good as the 71-73s do top up or down.
