7 Ways to Take Your Top Off This Weekend

Not that many things in life are worth getting a farmer’s tan for. Farming? No way. Golf? Forget about it! Driving one of these incredible convertibles? Definitely. Just in time for summer, we’ve rounded up 7 of our topless favorites, from awesome vintage rides to modern cars with all the bells and whistles…

eldorado1

First up is a 1973 Cadillac El Dorado Convertible. This is a land yacht with some serious presence. This baby isn’t fast and it gets terrible gas mileage, but it’s super cool and as comfortable as your lazy boy recliner. I think this is around the same vintage as the Boss Hoss mobile from the Dukes of Hazzard also (minus the horns).

eclasscab1

Next up is the Mercedes-Benz E Class Cabriolet. This is definitely one of the nicest 4 seat convertibles on the market and you can’t go wrong with any vintage E Class. Every body style is stunning and turns heads everywhere. The fit and finish is terrific and the newer ones are loaded with gadgets.

bmw3series1

Next up is the BMW 3 Series Cabriolet. Like the Mercedes E Class above, you can purchase any year of this vehicle and be very happy with the product. I’m pretty sure the BMW 3 Series has been on Car and Driver’s Top 10 List for about 25 years in a row…so any year will do. Again, the newer ones can be stuffed with options and gadgets so they’re a little more user friendly.

mercedesslk1

Next up is the Mercedes-Benz SLK Roadster. This is a neat little 2 seater that’s probably one of the best looking roadsters on the market today. The 2012 and newer body style is available with a few different engines and a huge list of options, anything from panorama moonroofs to navigation to keyless go. Again, the fit and finish are exactly what you’d expect from Mercedes-Benz and the road manners are impeccable.

bmwz42

Next up is the BMW Z4. This is in direct competition with the Mercedes-Benz 2 Seat SLK. In comparison to the Mercedes, this BMW has a little less luxury styling and a more sporty appearance and also drives a bit stiffer and sportier.

lincoln3

Next up is another classic, this 1966 Lincoln Continental Convertible. This is the ultimate 4 seat classic convertible and one of only a few convertibles that actually has four doors. These babies were loaded, for 1966 of course, with power windows, full power top, a/c and more.

xke2

Our last pick for top down fun is the 1973 Jaguar XKE Convertible. This is arguably the prettiest vehicle ever built and will get you a front row parking spot at any respectable restaurant. The valets will not have the guts to ask you for the keys either !

Cheers to taking some tops off this weekend !
