    The shop behind the beautiful convertible Dodge Challenger that stole the spotlight at last year's SEMA show is at it again. Drop Top Customs has announced that it will set about creating a topless version of the ever-sexy Cadillac CTS Coupe for this year's aftermarket shindig. We're not entirely sold on the thought of hacking the razor-sharp roof line from the coupe and replacing it with a folding soft top, but we'll reserve judgment until after we see the final product in the flesh, er, sheetmetal.

    DTC has been cranking out convertible versions of production hardtops for around 30 years, so the company knows what it's doing when it sets to taking the plasma cutter to an otherwise unsullied vehicle.

    As much as I like the CTS(s), the convertible doesn't do it for me. While ugly would be too harsh, it just looks like an overweight tub; the design lines are just not there.

    Agreed. It's not awful, but it's not... right.

    The proportions are too similar to a Saab 9-3
