The 70s Convertibles only lasted half way into the decade probably because they were more expensive and air conditioning became more economical to buy. It was easier to cool down the car with AC than put the top down and get roasted in the sun. We got spoiled! The 1976 Cadillac was officially "The Last Convertible" and a valuable classic today. Enjoy! Mario

I will take the 1970 Chevelle SS 454, hands down. Even though there are a lot of sweet ones here. Cheers.

Yes George the 70 Chevelle SS 454 is outrageous. So many others also and hard to pick. But since this is a tribute to the 70's Convertibles I would have to pick The Last Convertible, The 76 Cadillac. Cheers, Mario

My first car was a 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente Convertible. Dark blue with white convertible top, white interior, Uniroyal red stripe Tiger Paws. Oh how that car drew the eyes of the ladies until they saw the driver.

I was told I have the face that will turn a woman's head. I didn't realize they meant turn away.

But being in PA, I hated that convertible in winter time. My new girlfriend thought she would show me some love and after a snow and sleet storm went out with an ice scraper and went to work on my NEW plastic window putting more scratches on it than a winning lottery ticket. Now who really likes to have clear rear view vision?

I lost my love to own another convertible owning that car. And only owned one after that. A 2001 Corvette.

Those are some awesome pics and videos. And I agree George........that 70 SS454 is the right color and choice for me.

Hi Rob, you have some great stories and I love that you share them with us gear heads on my pages. I'm from NY and in winter I used to drive with my top down on my 59 Pontiac (white with red int) a beauty and turn the heat way up until it started to snow one day. I had to pull over and put the top back up. I was on a date at the time and she wasn't happy so I dumped her! But kept the car! That Comet sounds real classy. I always liked that color combo. Cheers, Mario

Of those in your tribute, I love the Cuda. If I were not a Pontiac guy, my dad is to blame for that, I would most certainly be a MOPAR guy. And the 71 Cuda convertible is the best!

By the way, 2003-2004 I was in an Army transportation unit serving under 1 MEF in Iraq and Kuwait. God bless the Marine Corps!

Semper Fi Warrior! God bless the Army also! In Vietnam we went on several Ops with Army Airborne and those guys were awesome! Thank you for your service to God and Country. Mario
