About 16 years I announced, to no-one in particular, that my next car would be a convertible and sure enough, when I emigrated to California 7 years later that’s exactly what I got. When that car died on me a couple of months ago I decided to do something very uncharacteristic – I chose a sensible car. That car just arrived over the weekend and I feel touched with a sadness that I was completely unprepared for.
On my inaugural drive to work this morning, each and every convertible that went by made my resolution stronger :
My next car will be a hybrid convertible
