    Being unfamiliar with the members mentioned or the cars, I'd love for someone to dig up the shots for me. It sounds interesting.

    Quick search again, did drum up this link:

    nice, personally I think if you MUST have a hard top, gullwing style is the way to go. At least for inflexible people like me. I can't imagine anything on top of the seat when I have to get in
