Question: GT options for the Midget -  (Voting closed: January 19, 2010, 11:51:30 PM)
Yes, run with a roadster-style cage and a soft tonneau - you'll go faster. - 2 (9.5%)
No, go with the factory hardtop - you'll go faster. - 7 (33.3%)
Try it both ways - build the cage so you can still fit the top over it, but have your boat-buddy make you a tonneau, too. - 12 (57.1%)

When I was 16 I had a 63 Midget and got into a race with a VW. My tach was past redline in 4th gear and there was about 2" of daylight between the top of the windshield frame and the the soft top.
I thought the top was going come off, but the two little fasteners on the ends held.

I actually did lose my hardtop once when I failed to fix it on properly. eek


Well, that would certainly solve any fresh air venting problems. shocked

I'm thinking I'll need to treat this like one would T-tops or a moon roof - tabs or straps.   

Between what I've gathered here, what I've read over the last weekend, and my gut, I'm going with the top and will continue accordingly.

Thanks again, everyone, for your input and your encouragement. cheers
