Ure Bang on Gordy, it is ridiculous, the roof folds into a compartment at the rear where the parcel tray is usually in the smaller cars, ie the place where u fit ur speakers, dunno the tech word for it ( by the way, what IS this area called?) and it looks like a jalopy. all these thigs have been derived from vintage cars or the newer custom phantoms of say 60's and 70's. This was a fad in uk some years back and has died down. The roof in question (tadpatri) is a power assisted.
