Overview

Convertibles by Dennis Adler

Convertibles (in the First Gear series) is a celebration of the classic drop-top, from the earliest of coach cars where convertible style was the norm, to the high-end sports cars of today. Today’s convertible is a metaphor for freedom on the open road. To drop the top and feel the wind and sun and to be able to cover up again in rain and cold represents the ultimate automotive luxury. From Ford’s Model T to sporty Jaguar roadsters, from classic Chevys to modern Miatas, the convertible is a body style that never goes out of style.

Convertibles profiles more than 60 cars in wonderful photographic detail. Each car profile includes its history, performance specs, trivia, and a color photo gallery. For the dedicated auto enthusiast or the casual or budding fan, this book is an entertaining survey of the greatest convertibles ever made.
