Convertibles is a celebration of the classic drop-top, from the earliest of coach cars where convertible style was the norm, to the high-end sports cars of today. This pictorial journey begins in 1886 with the Benz Patent Motorwagen and races forward through 125 years of automotive development, design innovation, and technology to give every reader a latest convertibles on the market and their historic heritages dating back to a time when every new idea was an innovation, if not a revelation, in modern personal transportation.
Today's convertible is a metaphor for freedom on the open road. To drop the top and feel the wind and sun and to be able to cover up again in rain and cold represents the ultimate automotive luxury. From Ford's Model T to sporty Jaguar roadsters, from classic Chevys to modern Miatas, the convertible is a body style that never goes out of style.
Convertiblesprofiles more than 60 cars in lovely photographic detail with car profiles for each car that include its history, performance specs, trivia, and a color photo gallery. For the dedicated auto enthusiast or the casual or budding fan, this book is an entertaining survey of the greatest convertibles ever made.
