We Miata-types think we have snazzy retractable hardtops, with our PRHT NCs and RF NDs.  But, check this interesting contraption that Honda featured in 1995, on its del Sol SiR TransTop 🤑

Very cool Dave and thanks for sharing, I never saw that variation of the del Sol top before.  I think quarantine has gotten the better of you though, the del Sol was made by Honda. 😋

Just watched the video.  I don't know how long the NC top takes, but it has to be faster than that. By a lot. My 13 seconds on my RF feels like forever when it pours. At least I can operate mine while driving up to 25 mph. I don't think the Del Sol let's you move.

You're probably right about the quarantine getting to me, Jeff... I think the weight of my hair (longest since the '70s) is affecting my alleged brain 🙁 .

Can't wait to see those long flowing locks blowing in the wind!  🤣 

Guess I am lucky as I shave my head?

The NC is also about 13 seconds.
