Thats just nasty, but not surprising: I've seen those added to Pontiac Grand Prix's, late model Caddy's, and Lexus'. I guess beauty, and value, are in the [nearly blind] eye of the beholder.

Are you speaking of those God-awful vinyl tops with the Paisley (?) print? I had the "pleasure" of seeing those when I was stationed on the "left" coast from '68 to '71.

Austin Powers would have LOVED one of those, baby. Yeah!

Do you think that Chrysler learned its lesson?

Nah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOOOOO! Keep the carriage top on the horse-driven buggy, please!

Factory landau tops were of much better quality, but they don't work on the present-day designs.

Piney, you never fail to amaze me with your discoveries. Where do you find these examples of bad taste?

I have a special talent for finding crud like this. Found this one the other day on I-95 in Indian River County, Florida.

You have seen A55 RGY, right? If you haven't, do a Google Image Search for the best randomly assigned plate ever.

At first I was like "What's he getting at?" Then I googled it.

Absolutely perfect. Whoever thought of that deserves an award for letting it sneak through the DMV

How do you fake this one? Photoshop? Maybe.

But I can't get to accept the picture and it is only 45Kb

If that Aura actually existed it would be fantastic. That thing is insanely attractive looking... I love the QC-like door.

I don't know, Someone had to redo the images behind the roof line, add SAB looking headrests, side panels and even the exhaust tips are different. Maybe? But if so it was very professionally done.
If I could afford another car, this convert would sure be near the top of the list. It is awesome looking, and it ought to be built ASAP
