The convertible was designed for the person who wants to soak in the sun and front for their friends. Drop-top buyers are usually middle–aged men compensating for their lack of girth hair, 16–year–old girls more interested in Twilight than proper parking procedures, and rappers who don't know what else to do with their money.

As a result, there's plenty of failures in the drop-top world. So we decided to compile a list to discourage all you summertime car shoppers. Think really hard before you decide to buy a topless cruiser. You don't want to end up on this list.
