Hollis, I agree. I lean towards 'hardtops' too. That's why I'm interested...
...in that DM '57 pro-street / yellow 'conversion' that you're in the middle of.
That's another hardtop with potential.
I've got the red version and the blue / 'Breathless' version. But, the yellow version was too much 'yellow' for me inside and out. So, I'm curious to see how yours turns out.
