Re: soft top bodt structure question - stupid!
>>But please never let me her of you wheeling around with all that fluff off or I'll drive up there and smack you. While it might not seem like much, it's all the protection you have.
I probably wouldnt do much wheeling with it off, but I sure as hell would drive on the street without it on!! I drove plenty of convertibles without rollcages when I was growing up, frequently at speeds well in excess of 100 mph. I remember a few times going down a highway at about 75 in my 68 dart gts340 with a friend driving next to me in a 1960 chevy panel truck. We were having fun with our friends diving out of the window of the panel truck into my open convertible. And yes, we were sober at the time.
So Im not going to be driving over any crazy angles offroad and risking rolling over with the thing all naked, but the street is another story, in my book. Perhaps thats insane to you, but I guess I'm something of a fatalist. Heck, if I could save money in a new car by deleting the airbags I would do it.
