My cover is in the garage attic and is typically only pulled out for car shows and/or cruises. Otherwise, it's top up & down as needed like you. And you're right... This isn't really a "parade cover" in practice because it will not support the weight of a person sitting on it. (BTW: Boot or not, it's a good idea to store the car with the top up between drives, because I've found that the top material will shrink/rebound a bit when down for an extended period making closing and then latching the thing a PITA.Side question... I always through that the "parade boot" was a term for a hard cover used on older convertibles so that in a parade someone could sit on the hard boot with their feet on the bottom of the back seat and be seen while doing the "parade wave" - (elbow, elbow, wrist, wrist...).
The only covers I've seen on an SN95 are the soft ones, which I've always heard referred to as simply a cover or a soft cover. If there was an option for a hard cover that would be potentially interesting, though I've never even tried to install the soft cover that came with mine even once, so yeah. I just drop the top and enjoy the drive (well, when ever I can with our weather around here...) and then the top goes right back up again when I park. If I had a garage to store it in, that would be different, but that's a topic for a different thread that mostly contains complaining about the sad state of the economy and my lack of $$$.
Mine does. The ends fold in, and fits in the trunk with no problem. I'd guess the '96 cover fits the same way (?).I have the "parade" cover for my '96 GT. PITA as it does not fit in the trunk.
