In many ways, the convertible car is the ultimate expression of automotive indulgence. Some of the finest and most stylish marques are included in this book that spans many decades: the Ford Thunderbird that helped boost the appeal of the soft-top car, the unforgettable Austin-Healey 300 and the classic Porsche 356 Speedster. The cars here range from early roadsters to midcentury statements of wealth and extreme styling, through to iconic and retro examples, such as the Saab 900, Mazda MX5, Cadillac Coupé DeVille, Ford Escort XR3i, Mercedes Pagoda, Peugeot 304, 1959 Nash Metropolitan, Daimler Dart, Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider, Corvette Stingray, BMW 2002, Citroen DS, Bentley S3, Aston Martin db5, Jaguar XJS, Lotus Elan, Ford Thunderbird, Austin Healey and the VW Karmann Ghia.
