Time to Go Bold and Topless

By: Glady Reign

Winter's final blast is over and it is high time to think of the thrilling adventures of spring. Budding flowers on the garden, birds chirping on the trees, soft breeze brushing your hair, and the exciting ride offered by a convertible are few of the reasons to long for the spring to come. But spring is here so it is high time that you ready your extra energy to enjoy the season to the fullest extent.

It is high time to go bold and topless. No, not you. I mean the cars. The convertibles can do that to your satisfaction. They could offer you one-exciting spring ride. Wherever you are in the globe you can share the joys of convertibles. They come in different colors, shapes, styles, amenities and prices. This year's hottest convertibles include the Saturn Sky Redline, Volvo C70, and the Chevrolet Corvette.

The latest Saturn Sky has transformed from a monotonous coupe to a surprisingly stunning machine. To deviate from the usual, the Saturn Sky Redline is given an aggressive and sharp stance. It was also given a hearty performance boost coming from its turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The Sky is a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive roadster with a relatively huge front end and tiny rear deck, just like the Solstice. The Saturn Sky defines what a pure American vehicle could do. The 2007 Saturn Sky Redline is priced at $29,025 while the turbo version starts at $25,325.

Another gorgeous coupe is the 2007 Volvo C70. The enchantment is not on - it is on its drop top feature. The roof of the Volvo C70 is the center of attention. With the motorized whirring, harmonized separation and exactness of folding, viewers cannot help but be amazed.

The Volvo C70, a two-door coupe, is the kind of vehicle fit for aficionados who wanted the free-spirited ride offered by a convertible. With just a button-push away, the C70 could already offer the wonders of a convertible. The car is has a base MSRP of $38,710.

If you wanted visceral escapades, the 2007 Corvette Convertible could lead you there. Thinking of a romantic weekend getaway? Let Corvette show you the way and cruise under the blue-hued sky.

If you are a European car fanatic, you might find the Corvette overly forceful. However, according to an aficionado, "While I'm a fan of many European brands, I still enjoy whatever chance I get to drive the latest version of Chevrolet's iconic sports car. I actually didn't car much for the last iteration -- the '90s version in particular had a sheen of middle-age-crisis and Viagra-prescription desperation -- the new, shorter and more agile model is a visual treat." The 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has a base MSRP of $53,335.
