They do look nice, but I'm just not a big fan of rag top convertibles.

Did they make those from the factory or are they custom?

they're custom. there'* a guy on the monte forum now who does that kind of stuff.
i think they look okay when the top is down but they kinda look "old personish" (no offense) when the tops up but idk

Yeah the rag top does look a bit weird, not bad looking with it down tho. People have also made some convertible Grand Prix'*. Never saw a pic with the tops up, but they look good with the tops down too.

I like the Grand Prix, not the Monte Carlo.


Now, these are amazing...and never made EVER! GM wanted to sell them since the Beretta used to pace the Indy 500 was a vert. They never passed rear impact testing though, so GM gave the unfinished prototypes to car schools. Why is that awesome? MY STEP DADS SCHOOL HAS ONE!

I need to figure out a way to steal and/or buy it.
