    That's my kind of little red wagon...:love:

    It's big, it has class, and looks like nothing else on the road. You can't lose that beast in a parking lot!:cool:

    I've had 2 convertibles. We called them "Soft top".
    The first was a 63 MG Midget in 72. The second was a 79 Triumph Spitfire in 93/94.

    Oh, pish-posh... The big ones, especially the old ones, are much easier to drive because you can see all four corners of the vehicle at all times. I had a 1969 Chrysler Newport (2-dr hardtop) at one time that was so easy to back into a parking spot. And plenty of fun to run that massive front bumper inches away from the car on the other corner when turning right (and scaring the bleep out of the driver - more than one went white as a sheet, you'd think they were about to be hit by a train... :ROFLMAO:).

    I've seen some people do several attempts at parking into a spot at the shopping center *front end first* before getting it right, then a guy comes along with a huge pickup truck and *backs it in* to a similar spot first try.o_O

    And don't forget - if you do hit something, it's that something that gets way more damaged. Your car will barely have a scratch (Newport 1, concrete underground garage pillar 0 :D ).
