    Back then a CONVERTIBLE COUPE was the default.
    Only if you had a family you'd get a HARDTOP SEDAN
    Now convertibles and coupes are uncommon

    Because it was easier to meet crash test standards, and no one was concerned about worse handling than in a coupe with a roof (escaping the roof reduces the stiffness of the car almost always)

      Did body stiffness really matter when the cars were body on frame?

    T levels were like 2-3X higher back then. This post applies to every single automotive trend

      Everything has declined since then. Sounds like you lack testosterone and project it onto what you see as negative. It was just a fact that cars weren't as important as they are today and it was more common for someone to have a surplus of money which let them buy a non necessity of a vehicle

    People weren't fat and conditioned into conformity by social media.
    Now most people would have panic attacks driving around with the top down.
    Miatachads are truly gods of this time.

    because boomers knew how to have fun. Now men have cucked themselves out of enjoying anything because it's "gay"

    Because the society was high trust, homogeneous and low crime there werent cameras everywhere or smartphones to share whatever malicious gossip. Today we like grey crossovers because we dont want anyone to notice us.

      100% the high trust bit. A ragtop is just asking for some feral Netflix to knife it for absolutely no reason at all.

      You just cannot have nice things around pours, and it goes double for diverse areas. (Asians withstanding)

    because nobody gave a shit about "crash test" standards (because they didn't exist at the time), and because they didn't have air conditioning widely available. Once people started thinking "gee, what the frick will happen to me if I get into a wreck with this thing", convertibles dropped off. AC becoming easier and easier to come by just made it quicker. Now they're all just toys.

    I love the look of that GM, but I'm wondering. Do you guys like the look of the OG Hondas? I mean they're sorta OK. Red line is something like 9k on them.

      Listen to the engine. It sounds like a motorcycle engine, and probably was a few smashed together.

    All this shit and nobody has said it's just because they were body on frame.
