What points for a car without a top...

Post by Ken Jones » Sun Mar 01, 2009 12:32 am

What if....

A Boxster (or other cabriolet) decides to remove the convertible top and run around town with the detachable hardtop.... then, gets to an autocross and decides to remove the hardtop too?

All I can decipher from the points is in the "Glass" section for removal of glazing... 20pts - because the convertible top would have included the rear glass (or plastic) window. There are separate categories for removing the door glass and 'incomplete' interior.

I think such a car should have a points hit, but don't know if 20 pts is enough since the whole top would be removed too.... by the way, it's a hypothetical question, but we may see such a car someday.

If it were my call, I would say incomplete interior.

Incomplete interior and removed glazing would be my first blush...so both of those points hits.

that is probably one of those that may need to be added in the near future....I can hear your mind turning from here Ken :D

No Dan.... those are my knees and hips.

But that reminds me of a "MASH" episode when an excited Frank Burns responds to Hawkeye with.... "If I had half a mind, I'd....." and Hawkeye quickly interupts him exclaiming, "That's your problem Frank, you have half a mind!" ....

I don't know why I work overtime on this stuff. (still awaiting correct reply)
