Time now 9:50 New York time,just got back from driving the new Hardtop C70 Conv. This car rides and handles great, though I would have liked a little more low end power. Took a few pictures,but don`t know how to post them on here. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

I got to test drive the c70 last Friday. It's really a beautiful car but my initial impression wasn't that overwhelmingly positive. I thought there would be less cowl shake than their proved to be. I also thought that throttle tip-in was overly aggressive. It made the car snap for no reason when launching and left you thinking man this thing must be quick. However, once underway, you realize there just isn't a lot of engine under that hood. Overall, I could truly see driving a c70 everyday would be quite a pleasure. It could be a bit sharper handling sure but it honestly couldn't be more beautiful. I got stared at everywhere I went. All in all, I give it a thumbs up, I just don't think it's quite for me.
