convertibles... should a vic be one?

ok so mitsu did it chevy did it and a few more companies...
my questions to you guys are
do you think a 7th gen would look nice with a top down and would you buy it if honda made one that looked nice not a quick hackjob to draw in more customers
i love my dads 71 chevelle convertible and i just want a convertible so bad but at the same time i luv the vic

from the photo chops that i've seen on this website, i think that they would look good, if the top was hidden, and not sticking up like the vw bug's

tehy will never do it..


reason they made a non coupe Si=because people that want speed will buuy si but then .... 6thgen.. only people that wanted speed bought it... house moms bought regualr 6th gen.. but w/ a variation of style... house moms like look of Si so they buy it now... basically im confusing but they already have 2 style to flood the market and a third i.e. convert would be overkill and wouldnt have good sales ratios.

chopping top also=smlaller trunk and tp would look funky..

the chassis strength would decrease. and the car becomes heavier.

Chassis strength wouldn't decrese if they properly reinforced the chassis, as they do with all convertible cars.

Wow, so the weight goes up a 'bit. The civic doesn't weigh that much to begin with. Big whoop. Civics are already lightweight and slow. Being a little heavier, and a little slower ain't gonna kill anyone.

Heck, if they made a convertible 'Vic, I'd take a serious look at it. Whether or not I'd buy one, I dunno. But I'd definitely consider it.

BTW, those chop pics look incredible.

I don't know.... A convertible Vic would be cool. And probably affordable. I'd get it over a Miata, and I can't afford an S2000. I didn't buy my Vic to break the soundbarrier anyway, so speed is really not an issue.

Wonder what a conversion would cost.....

If it had a K20 or K24 and looked good, I know it would sell... I mean, the monroof on a coupe just doesn't cut it for some people...

some of you think maybe i was gonna get it done to my vic...no way in hell because it would look crappy unless i really poored alot of money into it. but those chops look amazing especailly the side view a few posts up. i love the way the body line in the doors and quarter panels would flow parallel to the chopped top. it would definately be the nicest compact convertible around.
