Naturally, the Corvette and Mustang are the top two coolest convertibles chosen. These American-made beauties have definitely stood the test of time and continue to be awed – and collected – by many. The 1953, ’57 Fuelie, 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1975 Corvette, and the 1964 ½, 1965, 1966 and 1967 Mustang were the absolute coolest models made, according to the poll.

The third most popular was the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado. With a few votes each: the 1955 and 1957 Chevy, 1964 Pontiac Catalina, ’58 Chevy Impala, late ’50s Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, 1958 Ford retractable hardtop, 1965 Pontiac GTO, 1959 Pontiac Bonneville, ’57 T-bird, Jaguar XKE, Ford Cobra, 1972 Olds Cutlass, 1970 Hemi ’Cuda and the 1970 Chevy Chevelle.

Single nominees include the ’59 Ford Fairlane retractable, Ferrari F430, 1948 Packard Victoria, 1964 Ford Falcon, 1965 Lincoln, 1995 Mistubishi 3000 GT Spyder, 1968 ½ Shelby GT500KR, 1955 T-bird, 1932 Dusenberg model J and the 1972 Mercury Cougar, 1939 Ford Deluxe, 1953 Oldsmobile Fiesta with a continental kit, Triumph TR6, 1967 VW Beetle and 1968 Spitfire, 1936 Auburn Boattail Speedster, Model T Touring Car and the 1969 Firebird.

    I have a 66 and a 03 Corvette, plus a 71 VW, all three ragtops. I feel that no matter what you drive, if its a convert, it's cool!
