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.
