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?

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

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.

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.
