I understand your requirements and agree with you but there are no cars out there that will meet this criteria unless you are going out of the Retro Muscle car category. Even in a sport sedan I can only think of a few and they are in a much higher price category.
I have a 69 camaro vert I got in 79 and am in the same age range (well slightly older). Good luck in your search I just don't think you are going to find a car like you are looking for without sacrificing something.

I was seriously ready to buy the new convertible if it met all of my critical requirements: independent rear suspension, rear wheel drive, tight chassis, glass rear window, soft top, hard tonneau cover, usable trunk, 4 seats.

It meets all of the above requirements except for the hard tonneau cover. It's a shame, I was really liking this car.

Note that I am not interested in any of the hard top convertibles, primarily because I drive with the top down 90% of the time and need a usable trunk.

I'm really impressed from what I've seen here, that's my color inside and out I will have to see it live and in person. I was hoping for a hard tonneau cover however i do see the cost and weight draw backs. So for me the stang and the camaro do not have it ("O" well) and I would not cross shop the bmw anyway. When it comes time to pull trigger I guess it could come down to price. I still think I would wait until (my) 2012 for updates to the interior etc, and to see if there are any problems with the top.

You would be amazed...............or maybe you wouldn't....................how hard it is to have the top up on a mid 70's Florida day. Just can't do it. LOL

Sadly, Cyn, I have too much experience in coming back to Michigan from a warm vacation at Thanksgiving. But a good thing about the Camaro is the big glovebox that can hold two hats and two pair of gloves. I always expect the cold.

Florida Members!!!

I was planning on meeting number 3 friday morning approx 0730 near tarpon springs as i will be in florida on family vacation that week...

the problem is i will be with my girlfriends family and i think i will have a hard time convincing her dad that its worth the drive from Ft. Myers that early.

does anyone want to go with me to see number 3?! :-) maybe pick me up?
i dont need a ride back only a ride there

Not looking like we will be in Orlando this trip. Sorry. Gulf coast is turning out to be quite relaxing and enjoyable.
