Convertibles have never occupied a high position on Ray Hummel's wish list. However, he did own one years ago when he was in high school. He recalls that, “I told myself I would never own one again.
Over the years since then he has bought several cars and trucks to “fix up” and offer some of them for sale.
In 2003, he says, his sun-loving wife, Jennifer, mentioned to him that it sure would be nice if one day he bought a convertible car for her.
Always eager to please, Hummel put aside his disdain for convertible cars and began shopping for a suitable convertible.
