Today, my wife and I made our weekly pilgrimage to Costco. As we are walking into the store, a beautiful Jaguar pulls up, fairly new. OMG! It had a fake convertable top! AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH! Yes, I know that they are now partly Fords, but really, they are beautiful cars. The guy and his wife/mom/whoever should be locked up and tortured.

Jeez,

I didn't know Jag even offered them. Yikes. I saw a Chrysler 300 with one at O'Hare last week. White car with a blue fabric roof.

There is such a thing as cool ugly, but that isn't it.
It must have been a one-offTJeanloz

I'm relatively certain that Jaguar hasn't offered this as an option for at least the last 10 years- and I've certainly never seen one. If the description is accurate, I would have to guess that our fashion maven had his car custom retro-fitted, which is a horrible thought.
I'm sure you're right.look271

Probably spent big bucks for his fashion "upgrade".

If you're hell bent on pimpin' your Jag, then you need the fuzzy dice, a furry dash cover, curb feelers and offset rims on teensy-eensy wheels. While he's at it, he should make sure to dress in an ostritch skin jacket with butterfly collars, a large brimed hat lined with zebra colored fur, a medallion and platform shoes with lil' fish tanks built into the soles.

Viola....Fly Guy.
