ok, now this may be one of the sickest challeys i have ever seen! i love the convertible on it i think it looks bad ass and pretty much as close to factory as you can get it.
i loved the 300's also but for some reason the vanilla one didn't seem to pop so much for me. maybe it was just too plain?
i just wonder what sort of structural enhancements they have to do to these cars? it sure seems that they have quite the business going on as there was a lot of hot rods there done up nicely!
love to see what they could do with a charger! i really hate how people have done it with that stupid arch in the middle!

I've never been a big fan of 4 door convertibles, with the exception of the old Lincolns.
Any company that could correctly engineer a drop top on a 4 door 300, could certainly build it as a proper convertible, with 2 doors...
A slightly shortened wheelbase would keep the proportions right... and make for a much sportier competitor for the Europeans, particularly should the builder choose an SRT as a base for the conversion.
I added a "body kit" by slightly extending the lower facia, the sill between thefenders and a small lip on the bottom of the rear bumper. I also re-contoured the rear bumper a bit... as it is, it's too bulky.
Just a thought or two...
... here's a concept with a hard cover for the top.

I do have to say it looks BADASS with her top down but when it's up it just ruins the 300's appearance. I do believe that the convertible fits the Challenger and new 300 platform the best but need to make a hard top version as well.

They would clearly need to do something different with the top secured point of the seat belt. Simply removing the point off the pillar causes the seat to loop over your shoulder. The occupant would most likely have a broken collar bone in any significant impact.
the new 300 is not right for the convert conversion! its like the saying "if it isn't broke dont try to fix it"
anybody tell me the make and model of the rims? Thanks

Not bad with the top down. Wish it had the hard convertible cover for it like the Corvette convertibles. Soft cover kind of reminds me of a horse and buggy.

I hate the look of the long fabric top as well. The back window area looks like crap.
There was a Chally rag at Mopars at the Strip this year, looked really fine with the top down, but something about it just didn't look quite right with the top up. The 300 looks pretty sweet though...
