    Don't like the red, but I think my pearl white would look OK with a black hardtop. I would still prefer pearl white.

    Um, sorry, but that looks like a redneck from southern Ohio (or a yooper) who kept the pickup cap from his old red truck and put it on his new white truck.

    Nope. I think the previous comment sums it up!

    I saw that combo on Ebay. Not too attractive in my book. Obviously an after thought? Add-on?

    guys .. guys .. just go black on the hard top, it will look almost the same as the soft top, but shiny.

    I have a black hardtop on my 93 pearl white Allante. I like the color combination but the black does roast the interior if parked in the sun. I make sure to use a sunshade and keep the windows cracked to exhaust the hot air.

    unless it is raining, I always roll the glass down enough to fit a hand, about 4 inches. Keeps people from breaking or cutting things. When the alarms go off, no one ever sticks around.

    After 4 rag tops and one theft ( alarm was not working ), not a single incident of damage, including the theft car.

    besides, I rarely put the tops up, no matter where I go with the car. I try to always cover the dash and leather.

    Did you see the '92 FERRARI Yellow SPECIAL, sold on Oct 26, 2003 and looked like a taxi with a yellow hard top?

    she looks pretty cool with a BLACK HARD TOP.
    maybe I should dig that up .. a member of the Allante PininFarina Cyber Museum

    I would not want to dissapoint anyone with a picture of my ugly duckling. It is in need of a paint job since the car is now wearing 4 different colors. The bumper is silver, one fender is white, the top is black and the rest of the car is pearl white. I'm going to paint the car myself once I find some time. I'm planning to paint it with updated pearl white and cover the hard top with black canvas.

    I would think that only black tops would look good and only on certain colors.
