I test drove other cars in the same class; Audi convertible, Lexus, Mercedes, etc. None, I say none of them felt as solid, had the same pick up, were as stylish, comfortable or as beautiful. What an great experience to drive this car, AND it isn't bad to have so many people take an extra look as you drive by. Everything is within very easy reach inside, even visibility is great. Although I prefer all wheel drive the C 70's front wheel drive works well. I have about 4,000 miles on it presently and I am getting an average of 20 mpg and I have a heavy foot. I am an "oldster" and it is a pleasure to get that "I love my car" feeling back. Top up or down draws a crowd.
