    A convertible is gay when you blow a guy in one

    The guy who clued me into the fact that convertibles are for hairdressers and guys "light in the sneakers" was a boomer with a hate on for Miatas and MGs.

    He went on to purchase a drop-top Mustang and later a c5 targa-top Corvette.

    Corvettes are for the young or old as they aren't practical for married people. I owned mine when I was 20. The insurance is very high for a young driver which is why most get them when their children are out of their homes.

    Whenever I hear people talk about men owning convertibles, this show comes to mind immediately.

    Eh, modern convertibles are way safer than they used to be. They have collision-detected pop-up roll bars. My biggest gripe with old convertibles isn't even really safety. They just sacrifice rigidity, which ruins handling capabilities. That's not an issue with modern cars and adaptive suspensions.

    That said, I see plenty of guys driving convertibles.

    I've never heard of that stereotype before.

    And any man over the age of 18 who still cares about what other people think about him has failed.

    I have had a pickup truck F 150 for the past few years, but my wife had one of these a Saab 93 Turbo. Gotta say, I'd catch the attention of a lot of ladies in that car. Once I was driving and the wife was laying back in the seat and another Saab pulled up and the woman honked at me and said "nice car" then winked at me. Wife sat up just in time to catch the wink. After that she never wanted me driving her car without her.

    Every Friday night on my way to BJJ I see this old man in a red jaguar convertible heading to a restaurant right by the gym. Best part is that his wife is next to him and they have matching driving gloves and sun hats in this odd turquoise/aqua color. It's hilarious.

    I'd love a convertible Porsche but my wife wouldn't stop laughing at me in it, guaranteed.

    I like Verts... Here are my last 2 I have owned, 2000 Roush, and a 93 GT. I did a complete restoration on the 1993 Fox...

    I had an MGF and felt like an utter bellend driving it with the roof down without my wife in the passenger seat. But I’m a gentleman, not a vulgar attention seeker, hence my discomfort.
