When I was a Resident Physician, I had a 1947 MG-TD exactly like this. The “wind-screen” folded down on the bonnet.
The rag top was nearly useless and it did not have windows. I loved that car!
I had a 356 B Porsche in Candy Apple Red
I had a 1961 Corvette “Sting-Ray” with a removable hard-top (intermediate model between these two models)
I had The soft top Convertable of this Pontiac Firebird (Smokey & the Bandit car) The soft top went up electrically with once simple push of a dashboard button; my previous convertible tops required getting our the car and getting help to put the top down, With this Firebird, I put the top down almost everytime. Loved that car!
This Jaguar XK 120 was my father’s mid-life consolation. (Fire Engine Red)
Now in my rocking chair, I doze and dream of “four-on-the-floor”, wind-the-hair, and bugs-in-the-teeth!
In the comments section, tell me about cars you have loved.
