"It looks like a Galapagoan tortoise mated with a handicapped-accessible bathtub. It shudders like Gallopin’ Gertie over any road imperfection larger than an aphid.

Although this bizarre four-seat, three-windshield, two-door, crossover convertible does absolutely nothing right, it does it extremely well, never failing to bring a smile to our faces."
