Toyota A-Bat and GMC Denali XT: Concept Twins Separated at Birth

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Mar 12th, 2008 9:39pm

Woman's Look: 2007 Saturn Sky Roadster

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Sep 5th, 2007 1:18pm

For the record, I'm a convertible fanatic. I've driven my fair share of them, and can tell you honestly that (IMHO) nothing compares to the feeling of a long cruise with the top down on a lovely summer day.
