    Ya

    They sold those, and some guy in florida sold something similiar with a soft top called a riptide. Guy named kevin drives around my area in one, he had no idea what it was called either.

    That's the first time I have ever seen one of those. I didn't realize that chevy even made them.

    Chevy didn't make them. They were an aftermarket conversion. Tom Selleck sometimes drove a gold GMC S-Jimmy with that conversion on the show Magnum PI. (The Ferrari couldn't drive onto the beach...) ;)

    Magnum drove a real Ferrari. The folks at Ferrari were so happy at the spike in sales that resulted when Magnum PI came on the air that they GAVE a brand new one to Tom Selleck. :eek1:

    Sorry to hijack!

    The fake Ferrari you are thinking of is the Ferrari Spyder on the early years of Miami Vice.

    Ah yes!

    I think your right!

    Thanks

    Sorry for the hijack!

    To fix it:

    The vehicle's are very rare, it was typically an aftermarket setup done at the dealership. And i've never heard of a good one. They always leak. THen again, there 15-20 years old

    If they were to be a removable back on the blazers of today it would be neat also. I have never seen a S Blazer with a removable top before. :)
