As Exciting As A Trip To The Post Office: 2004 Lexus SC430
If you want a handsome late-model 2+2 convertible I think the Lexus SC430 should be on your short list. It won’t handle as well as a 911 convertible, or do big manly burnouts like a Mustang ragtop, or make you look as sexy as a late model Saab ragtop, but for a car that performs the A-to-B and back again driving needs, you’ll probably not find anything better than a late model Lexus. Find this 2004 Lexus SC430 offered for $13,500 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.

from DTs blurb… you’ll probably not find anything better than a late model Lexus. Find this 2004 Lexus SC430… Is this to imply that “late model” is a term that applies to 17 year old cars?
This car having back seats is weird. No live human can fit back there.
I think it’s more about having a place to actually carry something…like a ladies purse, or a few groceries, or that package you’re dropping at the post office. Hardly possible in most 2-seat sporty cars.
I can see that, but it if that is the purpose why not make the space more useable if you’re doing that instead of faux seats with head rests. Giving it a closer look it’s the second set of head rests with the top down that make it weird.
