Sporty — Good power as well as the looks I get from public. Nice to have option of the convertable on warm days. Small and economical. Brakes good and easy to maneuver in and out of parking spaces. Has real awesome rims.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast, looks nice for summer driving, fun to drive.

Cons: Minor repairs needed. Water pump leaks but works.

Good And Fun To Drive With Power — Powerful with Sporty appearance and fun to drive. Fit and finish above average for its time. MPG appr 25 highway and 20 city. One recall on the front end - causing shaking and wobble. Regular recommended maintenance is all has been required.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun in the sun with surprising acceleration.

Cons: Convertibles squeak

Blah. — I give this one some points considering that I've never owned a convertible. I got this car as a partial trade with cash for when I sold the BMW. It rattled like crazy, has a bunch of water leaks, and it was slow. I got this pic from the net, but mine was black.

Pros: Top down feels nice.

Cons: I really didn't want this car.

1996 Eclipse Gst Spyder — I've owned this for a while and had a lot of fun. Though the turbo is baby, it pushes the car pretty well. The interior is comfortable and well organized. Everything that you see on the car came with it when I bought it and I don't have the $$ to go out and do a complete 97-99 conversion with non-gangster wheels, so relax. It's actually been pretty reliable. I bent a few valves a while back but other than that it has really been pretty good to me.

Pros: It's the love of my life.  It will eat a Ferrari one day. It's about to get a 3kgt SL big brake upgrade.

Cons: The damn ABS light is always on.  The check engine light likes coming on for no reason as well.  The foose spank 5's are pretty gay.
