Looking at getting a C70 convertible, definatly want the HPT model, but the only real difference I can see between the 03/04 models, and the 01/02 models is about 6hp, and the clear headlight lenses! and of course there is the obvious mileage, and price, but I am thinking maybe get an older model, with about 40-50k on it, and then I would have more money left over for mods! or get a newer one with factory warranty etc, and mod as I go! Ultimatly I guess it is price, and color, that would be a consideration tooo!! I just wanted to see what other opinions about these cars are out there! thanks for the help guys!!
