The sun is here at last! It’s just cracking 30 degrees outside today and you get to drive home with the top down. Here’s our top reasons choosing a convertible was the best idea you ever had!
You’re the most popular person in the office at lunch time
Back from the sales trip, you’re in the office again to catch up with the team and do some admin. Come lunchtime, you’re the most popular person there is, as the whole gang want to go down town with the top down. You’re the made man – the coolest person in the office.
You get to share your amazing music taste with everyone
The top’s down and you’re rocking the tunes. Mr Brightside comes on and it’s time for a sing song. Everybody at the lights knows you love the Killers and have clocked you as a music connoisseur. A subtle nod to the lady in the next lane and then back to the singing. She knows.
Oh god, the sun’s out. I’d forgotten what warm was. Now, the roof’s off the car at 6am and I’m talking it to the petrol station to get fuelled up and it doesn’t even need fuel. Sun, Car, Me – a holy trinity.
Tan (even in traffic)
Stuck on the M25. It should be rubbish but I’m tanning. It’s a mobile sun bed and I’m looking better by the second. You, in the SUV, yes, you. I am outside, but in a car. Tanning! Traffic is awesome and I’m getting more than just my right arm brown (think about it).
Who needs air-conditioning?
The car geeks in the office go on about aerodynamics and fuel economy, but I’m keeping cool with a breeze in my hair and some skilful driving. I laugh at your air-conditioning and the impact it makes on your precious fuel economy.
Increase your load volume capacity
Suddenly, Summer arrives and you can put everything that wouldn’t fit previously into your amazing convertible. Going camping – no problem, moving house – no problem, bought a giant antique clock – no problem, all the sales brochures at once – no problem.
Make new friends
You stop at the lights and of course all the pedestrians wanna talk to you, the hottie in the car next to you wants to talk to you and if you pull up in a pub car park? Well you’ve doubled you’re friend tally in an instant.
Impress your clients
No one wants to sit in a stuffy office on a Summer’s day. Mention the sleek, topless beast outside and suddenly you’ve got an outdoor meeting location!
Excitement factor at the safari park
This is a bit of a stretch but if you like living dangerously, there’s nothing like the monkey enclosure at the safari park to get the blood pumping and the adrenaline going. Who needs Tony Robbins to get you motivated? Alternatively, you could consider driving a client through and putting the pressure on in negotiations!!!
It’s bound to make a comeback soon, why don’t you jump on the retro wagon and bring it back? You plus one other of the sales team with their convertible, some brooms from the supply cupboard and there’s plenty of afternoon entertainment. PLEASE NOTE: don’t try this until the legal department gives it the once over.
