1957 Ford Fairlane 500 - "Crusin' with the top down"
1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner with a retractable hardtop, 292Cid V8, and automatic transmission that has 37k miles(believe to be actual but have no proof). The first owner had the car for 44 years, and when purchased in 2001 it had been sitting in a barn since 1981. The car had a complete frame on restoration in 2002. During the restoration the 292 V8 engine and automatic transmission was rebuilt (around 2,500 miles ago). New parts include brakes, master and wheel cylinders, and whitewall tires. The retractable hard top makes this car really sweet and a little different. For more info, please call 1-800-231-3616.

OK, letting the top down in the 2010 Ferrari California and I think it's one of the most amazing engineering feats on the car.
