            It would have made more sense to re-engineer the frame and make it a four door convertible (phaeton).

              Saggy seat springs seem to fix that problem for me.

                With the exception of a purpose built race car, I hate to see people do radical chops on an old car. That thing would be miserable for anything but slowly cruising around town. Of course, if you just want attention....that's another story. As with any custom, you better like it because most of the potential buyers won't.

                  Not to mention, but they flattened out the top instead of keeping the usual round profile.

                      That'd look just like a Von Dutch drawing... driver's head sticking out of the roof, and a 6-foot gearshift lever

                        Ummm, Von Dutch was a pinstriper - Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was the cartoonist you were thinking of.
