• Here's my round up of possibilities.

    This is normally the answer to a question that nobody asks. But it's pretty close to the question Stan asked. Nissan Murano convertible.

    The other SUV option: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

    As close as a convertible gets to boring but practical: Toyota Solara.

    Hardtop 'vert: Volvo C70.

  • Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner, but I just been busy
    You said your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she?
    Look, I'm really flattered you would call your daughter that
    And here's an autograph for your brother; I wrote it on a Starter cap

    and here is my strange pick for Stan – fo shizz … *that* Stan

  • How about a ~10-year old E90-whatever BMW 3 Series convertible? Fake edit: it's called an E93. Retractable hardtop, probably a decent amount of rear seat legroom, nice looks, inline six power.

    • I used to have an E36 convertible, and the back seat on that one wasn't any better when it came to room than a SN95 Mustang convertible. The top mechanism reduces a bit of the available rear seat size. I ended up having to sell mine to get something that could carry the whole family without shoving the front seats all the way forward. I'm not sure E93s would be any better.

  • Stan ( Not that Stan, the other Stan) ought to just replace his left leg. You guys are getting way too complicated.

    • …and here I thought Woodie Man referred to your erectile dysfunction. Silly me. All along, you were a guy with a new wooden leg.

      How cool is that! Glad you have wood to make up for your lost manhood.

      For me, I'll stick with meat and bones. Even if they don't work as well. I'ma gonna live my life to the fullest.

      With a slushbox. (…gasp…)

      -Stan (the one-legged, not gonna get another, Stan…)

  • Thanks to all!

    Surprised none of you recommended this (Hard top convertible, decent rear seat legroom, and the heaviest vehicle on the road short of a Mac truck…)

    Stan's New Ride?!?

    I am open to other ideas as well. It's a pity the new Ford F-150 and Porsche Panamera don't have factory drop-tops…

    -Stan (…yeah…*that* Stan….)

  • I thought I had it until you said it had to be new-ish. Picture this: 1976, 14 year-old wanna be hippy young man, walking to his first day of high school somewhere on Long Island, and up pulls one of these, stops, cute blond wanna be hippie girl asks if I am a freshman and do I want a ride. An auspicious start to a nearly disastrous high school career. True story, and one that means I will always think fondly of two-door Caddy convertibles from that era.
