Shortly after getting the ’05 cabrio, Teri and I were driving top down on a perfect autumn day on the outskirts of Palm Springs. We exit the freeway and see a brand new convertible PT Cruiser, top down, at the light. Simultaneously we remark to each other what a hideous vehicle it is; I am stunned that the soft top made it look even worse. We pull alongside at the red light. The drivers are a friendly old couple, they wave and shout “great looking car you have there” and smile. Clearly they are waiting to get their compliment back. I look at the stop light, still red. Dammit, I turn and say “yeah, you too”. The light changes, and off we go.
