Default Cloth Top

Has anybody ever seen a 2000+ model with a cloth top? I had never heard of this I thought that it was only in 97 for the 40th ann. I was looking around and I found a newer one with a cloth top. Not sure what year it was but I had never seen or heard of one. I'll try to get the link up soon!

Default and that reason is...

The top material is bad about holding moisture and causing premature rust beneath it. There is really no "up" side to this modification. I don't believe it adds to the aesthetic beauty of the car and would only hurt its resale value since it'* not factory installed.

Not then, either. That was never a factory option.

I like cloth tops for the two tone look, but they really are ugly. I wouldn't mind having one because it'* unique. I'd most likely even then think that it'* ugly.
