Do a web search for secondary timing chain tensioners and you'll read about what happened to my car at 58,000 miles. If I didn't have an extended warranty to pick up the tab for the month long rental car and ~$8000 worth of engine replacement work, this would've been a total nightmare instead of just a bad dream. Look elsewhere unless you want a car that will get you looks as well as get you stranded.
Foglights helped with vision because headlights are too dim. Leather boot helped protect the canvas convertible top from flapping with the top down.
Opening the driver door from within after the top gets wet resulted in water dripping from where the convertible top met the front windshield frame. This was how the car was designed and made for wet trousers/seats/floormats any time it rained. Also, the antenna looked like a flagpole.
