I have a loan ready to go and am looking several times a day for a nice Mustang GT, maybe s Cobra. What are your thoughts on a convertible daily driver, even in the winter?

I had a daily driver fox vert in North Dakota growing up. It sucks.
DD Mustang isn't a bad thing, but those vert tops take a beating in the cold and you never really get the car warm on the inside.

Thanks for the input. I was afraid that's the feedback I would get. Now this is off topic, but other than 15hp, is there any reason to go New Edge Cobra vs SN95?

Other than the motor difference, the New Edge having the IRS and the '01 having the 'nice' seats, it's all about what you like to look at.
