Top Up-Top Down

A Personalized Convertible

Driver wants the wind to caress his face, but passenger just got her hair done? Back seat got a baby in it, but mommy and daddy in the front seat still want to look cool? No problemo! A personalized convertible, custom made for your families needs.

A convertible car roof that is split in half, or quarters, and can be moved easily into position, depending on who is in the car.

Never again do you have to forgo your comfort, just to please those damn whiny kids. Everyone gets their top up, just the way they want it. Yay!

       I can't believe this isn't a thing. (+)   

       It came to me in a dream last night. But it was only divided in half lengthwise. So I took it to the next level, of course.

       Well, the buffeting would come in through any open sides anyway, unless you'd planned a completely closed compartment for each person. Convertibles with four seats already offer lot of air control, for example many have a screen that raises behind the front seats, as much of the buffeting "rolls" off the windscreen and comes in behind. I've never been in the back of a 4 seat convertible though, so I can' t comment on that. Sitting in the back of a 4 seat convertible does give one an image unfortunately reminiscent of Hitler.

       I used to drive a Nissan Pulsar T-Top which allowed separate roofing choices for the driver and passenger.

       You could achieve the same effect by having two separate cars... Or a car and a motorbike.

       Indeed. Martin-Baker would be your friend on this one.   

       Troublesome passenger ? BOOM ... one thousand, two thousand, three thousand, check canopy .... <thud>   

       And it's a standard fitment on a particular variant of the Aston-Martin DB5 ... doubleplusgood.
