Daihatsu’s Charade looks like a boring econo-box city car. Let us assure you, it isn’t.
Most car makers offer at least one open-topped model in their range, usually built in-house. But it's not that long since independent coachbuilders were relied upon to create convertible versions of mainstream cars. Like these for example...
Before he went bust in a bid to create his own open-topped sportscar, Walter Treser used to chop, stretch and stick bodykits onto anything with an Audi badge. Where the Quattro was concerned, he sliced 39 of them open and added his own bodykit. Well, this was the eighties...

That seems like an extreme reaction to some convertibles...
I don't think there's a political agenda in an article entitled "Unique convertibles that shouldn't exist"
Granted, on a political subject many papers and magazines do have political agendas but they aren't on this article or many of MSN's articles. Many of which are only a few paragraphs long anyway!
this is the truth, no gives a dam about all this crap about, what should exist or not. Its not down to reporters to make such an article. Reporters always blind you anyway, as they work closely with the goverment anyway, there is always a political gain in story,s don,t let them blind you.
I say stop going on the figures, if you prefer a certain car and you know it feels right to you, it does,nt matter what others think, and you should not buy a car just because most people buy that car.
MAKE UP YOUR MINDS, THAT IS SOME THING THE ENGLISH DON,T DO ANYMORE. DO THINGS YOUR WAY, IF YOU KEEP LISTENING TO THESE TWERPS YOU NEVER LIVE YOUR LIFE, BUT TO FIND YOU LIVED ON THERE TERMS AND NOT YOUR OWN, THAT IS REAL LIFE.
Looking at the wolseley hornet was a step back in time for me and reminded me that crayford and tickford also styled and sometimes even chopped the ford capri
The chopped scoda used to be the butt end of everyone's jokes and was likened to a skip.
Now all I am reaally seeing at the moment is negative comments regarding the Fiat Punto Convertible - personally I think it is a good looking car, especially compared to the original hatchback!!
They look so much better when they have been modified!!!
This is an awful article, all these cars are classics in their own way.
My wife had a Punto Cabriolet for a number of years, it was a great little car, superb in the sunshine, and also with the hood up - a great little car.
Added to which, what wouldn't you do to own that Citroen now
Very lazy article
