I currently own my third Corvette. I had a 1971 LT1, a 1985, and now, a
1993 40th Anniversary. They have all been used when I got them, and they
have all been coupes.
I'm looking forward to getting my first new Corvette in 2010, for my
60th birthday. I'm really tempted to buy a roadster. I live in Tucson,
so much of the year is very nice weather. Obviously, the summer is far
too hot for an open vehicle, but even today in early December, it is in
The thing that holds me back is that I see roadsters (Corvette, and
other sports cars), and the roof is closed almost all of the time. What
do roadster owners think? Would you do it again? How is the car to drive
regularly with the top down? Why do so many people put their top up? How
is the car to drive with the top up?
Thanks for your input.
