The frigid grip of winter has all but subsided, and a hot, hot summer is staring you in the face. What do you do? Simple - drop the top and blast Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. That’s why this week, your challenge is to find the best convertible on eBay for less than a meager $10,000 budget. Just don’t get your hair done beforehand.

Here are the rules:

  • One entry per post.
  • Cars must have a realistic selling price under $10,000.
  • Cars must be operable/easily restored to running condition.
  • Completed and sold listings can be included.
  • You can add modifications, as long as it doesn’t go over the total budget.
  • Write a short reason why your car is the best convertible for less than $10,000.

Start here and find a car that can be the both the coolest and most uncomfortable way to drive around five people.
