Oh, when I read that I thought he was using it as an expression to refer to absorbing information or something.

Sorry :p

Meh, looking at the sky could cost you. Looking away for one second at 60 mph
means you just traveled 90 feet, 3 seconds is 270. Just something to think about :P

@Spade: That is a good point, it could happen, but the chances of that; if you just take a quick glance, on a straight road, good weather conditions,

@Cliffy: Well, yeah. :p

If I remember correctly it is a 'Targa top'.


And DRFT-R, if you really want to know something similiar but not the same to the actual topic, then start a new thread asking what you want to know, saves the hassle of arguments

Yes. The name came from the first car to popularize that style of roof (though not the first to actually HAVE that form of roof), the '67 Porsche 911 Targa (named for the Targa Florio road race):

(this is a '68)



The early cars had a zip out plastic rear window. That was replaced by a fixed glass window in '69:
