Best Cars for Summer

Remember the scene in National Lampoon’s Vacation when Clark sees the blonde babe driving that sweet candy-apple red Ferrari while road tripping with his family? Yeah, that was a great scene!

Feel the Breeze: Why Convertibles Shine in Summer

Classic Beauties and Sporty Stars

When it comes to the perfect summer ride, one word comes to mind: convertibles. While Oregon may not be teeming with these open-top wonders, there’s no denying the joy they bring during the sunny months. Whether it’s the grandeur of a Pontiac or Cadillac classic or the sporty allure of a small sports car, convertibles have an irreplaceable charm.

The Pleasure of Going Topless

Driving a convertible is more than just transportation; it’s an experience. Picture this: the warm sun caressing your face, the soothing sounds of nature all around you, and the freshest breeze you’ll ever feel. It’s a throwback to a time when all cars were convertibles, designed for the sheer pleasure of the drive. However, evolving needs and advancements in engine power gradually shifted the automotive landscape.

A Brief History of Convertibles

In the 1950s and 1960s, affordable convertibles flooded the market, catering to those seeking an open-air adventure. But as highways grew, so did travel speeds, and sunroofs and air conditioning began to sway drivers. The popularity of convertibles waned, but they never lost their allure.

Modern Marvels

Fast forward to today, and convertibles have evolved into modern marvels. One-touch buttons effortlessly retract the top, while removable T-top panels offer the perfect compromise between open and closed. Hard tops provide extra protection, and advancements in materials ensure durability. These modern convertibles are quieter, more practical, and no longer limited to two-seaters.

Safety First: No Aunt Edna on the Roof

Another perk of convertibles is the absence of a top, making it impossible for Aunt Edna to hitch a ride on your luggage rack. Whether you’re cruising in a Rambler American, Packard Caribbean, Jeep Wrangler, or the ever-popular Mazda Miata, Sherwood Auto Repair is your trusted partner in keeping your convertible in pristine condition, ensuring it lasts a lifetime.
