....Wife wants me to buy a convertible but I'm heavily against that idea and am trying to find a decent coupe as a compromise!
a coupe is never a compromise for a cabriolet, only coupe owners think so
... the reasons not to buy a cabriolet can only be
a) you're shy
b) you're ugly
c) you don't have a hat to protect you from the sun
So listen to your wife, she's right!
I know she is always right!!
But I have some other reasons such as requiring a decent back seat for our daughter (3 years old) and a lack of storage for any extra bits like a hardtop. Also trying to keep the length of any car under 4.9m as that's a perfect fit for my garage next to our other, very impractical, car which I can't take my daughter out in as it's too loud and finding a narrow car seat for it hasn't happened yet.
I would also like to keep this purchase south of $20k. Which really seems to put any convertibles out of reach. I only want to put the vehicle on historic rego so anymore than that amount feels like a waste.
I'm open to any and all suggestions from people though. So a basic list of requirements are:
* Air condtioning
* Length up to 4.9m (could squeeze in 5m if it opens up a better range of cars)
* Sedan, coupe, wagon.
* Petrol only.
* Decent back seat for child in a booster seat soon.
I have no interest in anything fast. The other car has that area covered.
Sorry for not being model specific but I like so many of these early cars that I will be happy with pretty much anything that can meet our needs and wants!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
