Aftermarket Convertibles?

Today I saw a car (not a Camaro) that was chopped and "convertiblized" with the canvas top neatly buttoned up in the rear. Is there anyone out there that converted their hardtop to a convertible? Pics please!

About the same way I felt when I saw my first Aztek.

I might be in the Minority, but I like the Murano convertible. Not for the money, but look wise

Saw one after work yesterday. Was so shocked by the appearance, I could not stop staring.

Check out this hack job. It doesn't even have quarter windows

I can't understand why anyone would do this when you could get a factory convertible for a lot less

Because there didn't used to be any 5th gen convertibles, just coupes.

Just for the first year, and GM trotted out the convertible concept right away. I guess if you just can't wait...

Here is one.

I wonder how they stiffen the frame. Without stiffening, I would figure that over time, the doors would be harder to close.
