Does it have a retractable hardtop? I like those. It's the canvas covered things I don't like.

Obviously, from the pictures, it's a standard canvas (or vinyl) top.

They really lost out when they changed the original tail lights from round to square. That little detail just doesn't look quite right.....

They went with the retro 3 rectanglular lights, which were the originals, not round.

If I'm not mistaken, I saw an early prototype with rounds lenses for tail lights.

nope - even early prototypes had rectangular lights - it was always the plan to go retro classic with this and those tails were signature for that car..

They'll sell like hotcakes.

After a year or two....they'll be a dime a dozen.

Give me a mint condition fox body or older and I'm set!

I have an '84 GT (non convert) with 58K on it....Love it in the summer!

Ugh! That looks like a 1969 ricer with that retarded wing on the back and the chrome rims.

Mopower just doesn't like to muss his hair

Looks like someone tried to make their own Shelby... and it looks like a 67 to me. That front skirt looks like crap IMO.
