I've seen those tops on the Sable before. I also think they're aftermarket because they are SO UGLY that Ford would not want to encourage their use!! That type of top definately doesn't belong on such a curved body style...

This is exactly why you can't make the Taurus a convertable.

I don't know about Gen III , but they did them on Gen II. It may have been a dealer thing but they were delivered to the original buyer that way. A guy that I work with had me look at his dads car that had one.

Alright don't be hating on the landau, I have one, a 99 SE with 25th anniversary badges on it. (Midnight blue paint, gray top).

Everyone loves the car - distinctive look. Easy to find in the parking lot.

If you want to hate on the thing, hate how it was built by the 3 stooges. Brakes, rotors, resovoir tank, heater hose, brown antifreeze...what a piece of s***.

The Gen 4 would make for a wicked convertable.

What's the thing bolted on top of the engine? I'm pretty sure I don't have anything like that on my duratec.

Says who?


Yes, leather tops look attrotious on such a bubbly car... but to avoid that with a convertable... Get a hard top!
