Here is a wierd poll
Wat would be your favorite body style of a Sportcar...

Well mine would be a convertible. You can put the windows up and close the roof when u want and if its a cloudy day with an amount of sunlight that wont irritate you.. just open the roof!!

I hate convertibles. Coupe is more my style..I just like being in that cockpit kinda feeling, .plus the handling is much tighter too!!

Non-removable hardtop for me. I'll feel more secure in it that the other two.

I go with Addy and GTO on this one. I prefer the Hardtop non-convertibles. They are definately a lot safer!

But....then, if Hyundai make a sports car....i prefer a convertible.......atleast i can jump out of the car before it crashes, it'll be safer than sitting inside the car!!

Hardtop for me, though Targa comes in a close second. Convertibles definitely not, sometimes they tend to be heavier than coupes, just trying to get the rigidity right.

Hard-top convertible. I enjoy the idea of driving in a convertible on an ideal day.

Regards...
