Baby car seat for convertible?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has a baby seat(5 months old daughter, 15 lbs) that fits the convertible without interfering with the front seat.

I would love to let my daughter enjoy the car without having my wife's knees on the dash.

Thanks!

I have a toddler seat in mine, forward facing works good, buyt if you're using a rear facing seat it will be tight.

Any good baby seat will fit. Yes the passenger seat will have to be forward for a rear facing seat.

Thanks for the answersI I bought a seat today that can be either forward facing or rear facing. It is however hard for my wife to sit so close to the dash, but it'll pass

The car has LATCH connectors for a reason.

Too bad he can't dabble his toes in the waterbag.

Here's my baby seat. In and out of the car in 8 seconds!

But like everyone else said you have to slide the front seat forward.

Hmm, from my experience, and the answers you are receiving, I would say the answer is no

Forward facing definitely gives you more room for the front passengers but as all have said, either works!! My daughter (16 months) loves the Camaro! : )

I love this picture. Congratulations to you guys on your new addition. My 2 y/o grandson loves my car....he calls it "G'Paw's Maro," but I can't imagine fitting his car seat in the back. You guys have given me inspiration to try...but only with the top down.

I took a friend and her two year old out for a drive. I'm not sure how the coupe guys could do it, but the only way I could get that seat inside was to lower the top. It wasn't going to happen at all with the top up.
