Here is the car that convinced me I want the vinyl back on. Mine is apart, and time and money are scarce. It will remain apart for some time. Just a 307 glide, nothing special.

I like the pic man. The black and the white look classy. Of corse the owner should do what makes him happy, but some colors lend themselves to the vinyl top more than others I think.

Here is mine as requested earlier. As I said, I am not sure about the top. It is suposed to have one but I really like the sail panels without it.

Design trends and exposure to influencers alter perception of value heavily. Different age groups are attracted to products due to trends that are not always prevalent to those in other groups. The debate will always be a personal one.
Beautiful car, and I would agree about the look.  You nailed it when it comes to design attitudes in passing generations.

Is that your 69's color combo Tom? If it is...very nice. Be proud of the 307. It's considered a mile stone SB IMO because it replaced the 327 in 69. I imagine a lot of them were modified so to have a survivor is very cool!

Yes that my color, trim tag shows a black vinyl top. Black & white interior as well. With the style trim I should also have black out on the rockers, and I plan to add the DX-1 stripe in black because I like it. I am fine with the 307, even though many consider it a boat anchor candidate. Not so sure about the powerglide, I'm thinking of a modern overdrive, with a locking converter. Good news is I'm working again! Not the money I used to get but still money. There is renewed hope for my plainish jane.

You could always shelf the original drivetrain, and put in something fun for now. May cost you a little more, but I figure you realize that if your thinking about switching transmissions.

Actually I've picked up a tpi setup from an 87 trans am that will bolt on my 307, and should perk it up enough for my enjoyment.

Yes, more pics... and more voting....

Several of the early pics and url postings no longer work, especially from Photobucket.  It would be great if the original poster cound check on those....

That's why I prefer to post the smaller images here.  They don't disappear if something happens to the linked photo site or account.

Good point!
And with hindsight I should have documented them myself.  Too late now, some of the early posters haven't been on the site since 2006.

I wish my car had a vinyl top! I especially like the look of the 69's; like they're floating.
