Well at least you got through the test drive without wetting your pants. Took delivery of my GT-500 convertible this week and it is a fantastic car, far away more fun to drive than the 2010 coupe we sold to buy this. As for dropping the top, it helps to actually have a brain and a bit of independent thought to unlatch the roof before putting the top down. This is not a lexus my friend and to whine about the car not informing you of the obvious is simply jaw dropping. Thanks for the great photos, though.
