      Very nice interior - good looking car.

        Thank you Jim and Gene. My wife never drove the T Bird, her choice, but has driven this a few times and really likes it.

            Interesting, very interesting. A retractable hardtop just like Ford did in the late 50's. Nothing new here. Nice looking car. Can we ask how much for this low mileage 08?

              Dan, Well, we can certainly ask but the gentleman has already said he will probably flip it in the spring so I'd bet against his telling the how much.

              We were at the dealership three weeks with our trade and cash for a 2012 Chrysler 200 retractable with 4500 miles when advised it just sold. Yes, I'm going to have one before I kick!

                You are a wise man Bill....... Actually I was looking for a 200 retractable when I stumbled across this one.
                Dan: I like the 57/59 Ford retractable HT's but I never thought they could get the back end to look just right, very boxy.

                  As a Chrysler fan I've always favored the look of the Sebring over the now discontinued 200.

                    Gene, I also like my 300C as well as any GM product that I ever owned. Gene the 200 received rave reviews for reliability as opposed to the Sebring. Ric, I've asked any Sebring retractable owner I could find about their cars and to a person they had nothing bad to say!

                      Bill and Ric - I agree that the old Fords did look boxy. I tried to word my question about "how much" so that it could mean how much did you pay OR how much when it is flipped. Let the readers decide which???

                        Dan, that's exactly how I read it, to mean either.

                          If the only fault you find with the 300 is that the top doesn't go down this might be good compromise:

                          I have been negotiating on a car with one of their conversions (not a Chrysler) going on a year now.

                          For all those who say "you get what you pay for", I imagine you get a lot.The cost of the conversion for the car I am considering was $30,000 plus coast to coast shipping twice.

                              Double dang! I guess money really can buy happiness.

                              And here I am driving a crappy Chevy rental because some moron hit my 300c in a parking lot. Took off without so much as leaving a note.
