Default Mustang Hardtop Convertible: Hot or Not?

Looking at this, I think weight and cost... But it sure looks cool, and in theory, a convertible hardtop is pretty awesome. What do you think?

Hm...looks OK but kind of weird. Also, the rear seats look like the seat back was pushed towards the front of the car (maybe all the 'verts are like that). I'd imagine that would be uncomfortable to sit in.

Nah, I don't think it's necessary. But amazing that he built it from scratch

No. It loses the whole look of the mustang. The curves are just not there with the hard top. I'd keep my rag top over that any day.

The Europeans have been doing this for a while now...
Something that wouldn't disturb the flow of the body line would work fine IMO.
