    I had that option when I had my moonroof cut in, but it was like $200 more so I didn't do it. I'm happy I didn't, I like the moonroof idea much better now...

    i dont think it would be safe cutting a targa top into the car.. mostly b/c this is a subframe car and cutting into the roof structure would weaken the car. which would require much more reinforcements to the floor pan area.

    Yeah targa tops are ok for cars that come with them because their styled around that. but I think the mustang lines make that look like shizz!

    I think it looks pretty good. He better have 4"x4" sub connectors though.
     
  11. Targa looks very good on mustang...

    And if you think that targa is rice? Then you're retarded... Do you really think the corvette is rice?

    i like targa tops, but they take too much away from the structure of the car, i wouldn't do it to my own.

    Yes, IMHO i actually think the corvette looks rice. But thats a corvette that came with a targa , just like mentioned before, when a car "Comes" with a targa then the car is centered around it. I must be freaken retarded then b/c the targa is rice and will always be rice, might as well put fat can mufflers on it and a big ugly wing.......almost forgot , it does have a big ugly wing.
     
  14. yeah?

    well I can piss further then you anyday!

    lol... you can do a targa conversion... Its not a big deal and sure as heck aint very hard to stiffen the chassis...

    how is a targa that comes stock rice, when the true definition of a ricer is someone who puts a fart can, body kit, huge wing, etc. on their car??

    oh and... :behind: :khobra: :hitit:

    All you would have to do is use the bracing found undet the 'verts and subframes
    to solve the flex issue. It may not be as stiff as a coupe, but it would compare to
    a vert.
