Hey Allante enthusiasts:
After years of thinking about it, I've finally decided to buy an Allante. After doing some reading I'm partial to the Phase II models, 90 1/2 through 92. Problem is I'm having trouble finding a decent one with a hard top and I'd really like to have the hardtop if possible. Solution: Find a hardtop from an older model as they seem to be more plentiful (I see plenty of pre-90 cars with the hardtop for a reasonable price).
Question: Are the hardtops interchangeable between years? I've read that the latching mechanism changed in 1990, so I'm not sure if that changed the hardtop configuration.
Last question: Any suggestions for Allante hunting? AutoTrader and Carsoup just ain't doing the trick.
Thanks Bruce (aka Carmental)
