So i was driving down the street when there it was... a ragtop gen3 camry. I couldnt believe my eyes. It was white with a tan-ish color top. Was this a limited time option or do you think the guy had it specially done. I mean there was nothing else noticable done to the car - looked very stock. Anyone here seen anything like that?

Some dealerships install these, they're called "sim-con" or simulated-convertible roofs. They're not really convertibles, they just look the part. Personally they make me want to :barf:

yeah i could tell it wasnt really a convertible. I didnt know dealers did that. Or that they were allowed to do that to cars. i know bmw throws a fit if dealers do anything to their cars. Personally i was attracted to it because I'd never seen that before, but I agree with you 87 Camry5Speed, its not very nice looking.

Yeah, I brought it up a while back.

They are a roof cover. It's really weird. But I have seen the same thing for older caprice's. It just slides over the roof and looks really dumb. That's about all it does.

that would be phat if they made a camry/solara drop top roadster...imagine rollbarring a family car.

Gen 3 droptop would look hella like an S2k from the back (personally I think Honda bit that style, but Honda usually takes a Toyota design and makes it LOOK better - ie Acura TSX)

The lady who parks next to me in my lot has a 2001 White LE with a beige ragtop.. Its badged as a desingers edition or something.... She bought it brand new. Her steering locked the other day because she shifted it and she was freaking out because she couldnt turn the key. She was having a heart-attack so I helped her which took just a shake of the wheel :rolleyes: In the process I couldnt help but notice she only had 4,609 miles on it and its a 2001 !!!
