i suspect there was not the investment to do 2 models anyway, especially in the crossover from BL to Ford. I think if they introduced a full convertible in the earlier days it would have boosted sales enormously. As you say the cabriolet does suit our weather as different panels can be easily removed. When travelling to classic car shows I just remove the targa panels only, and then the rest when I get there. My seal for the targa panels is good, but I have placed an order with you for use in the future. You have to take the opportunity to get one if you hope to own the vehicle long term.
