I know what you’re thinking. You’re a fool, creaky leaky targa tops are old news, no longer relevant. Of a bygone era.

But how come...all the sweet new convertibles are modelled off the same style? That slick as hell side profile with the full rollover bar, keeping the lines of a fixed roof coupe? Rather than the dumpy flat deck you get with a traditional folding soft top?

Hrm.

You ever see one o’ them Mercedes cabriolets with the wind deflector up? As if they’re desperately trying to graft on the benefits of a targa to an inferior design. Silly.
