I'll say up front that I fully realize that this might only turn out to be a speculation thread. That is, unless we get little birds whispering details in our collective ears, but here is the $70K+ question: Will the C-7 convertible have to suffer the same fate as its coupe siblings in repeating the dreaded Bowling Green / Nashville shuffle? I hear that the first produced convertibles are expected @ dealerships before Christmas. If that turns out to be true, does that really mean you can expect one in Jan. or later? To quote a Jack Nicholson line, "You want the truth, you can't handle the truth!" Be prepared...Nothing looks sadder than a new convertible covered in snow. Of course you lucky dogs that live in warmer climates don't have any worries about that particular issue.
