probably just a viynal looking top. They arn't so popular anymore but used to be, esp in the 70'* and 80'* when they wanted to give off the perseption that it was a convertable but really isn't.
Did it look like this? This is what i'm talking about:

I still think these cars would look hot with a convertable model

I way to tell a convertable from a vynal top, is the convertable has the lines where the frame for the top sticks out. It is also not very smooth, while a vynal top is all smooth.

Well, anyway, I don't like those soft tops! Somehow they don't look that hot.

Imagine if someone accidentaly spilled coffee on it!

Lakeville: that'* what I said. Vynal tops are smooth, convertable tops aren't.
