    Over the last few months I have been noticing a trend; cabriolet owners love their hats. I have noticed that the choice of hat varies with the make and model of vehicle. For instance; Camaro cabriolet owners seem to really like their "Bud Light" and "NASCAR" hats. I have been seeing quite a few Mercedes Benz cabriolet owners sporting yarmulka. Just the other day I saw a Chrysler cabriolet owner wearing a cowboy hat.

    My question is, in your opinion, what would be the most pretentious hat that I could purchase to wear in my cabriolet. I am getting so many looks of jealousy and the status is intoxicating. I would like to have a hat that makes me look as rich as the cabriolet does. I have considered a crown, but that's a little over the top even by my standards.

    TIA

    How many looks of jealousy can you really get in a base model V6 with pizza cutters and hideous side trim?;)

    That said, don't be a douche.

    How about this mink hat and matching coat! This just screems...
    "Hey look at me in my outragous Cabriolet". The chicks will be lined up
    following your luxurious exotic machine just begging you to take
    them for a drive around downtown. Sure its expensive, but a guy like
    you is obviously rolling in cash.

    On a serious note though, don't call it a "cabriolet". It isn't a VW queermobile FFS.

    I can not talk to you as you drive two sordid coupes that were not produced in this century. I'm sure you will understand.

    What I can do is thank you for not posting them in your signature. I took a peek at your garage, and as you can imagine those rust buckets are quite hard on the eyes of a rich cabriolet owner. I will say I got quite a good laugh when I realized that it was probably the only garage those things had ever been in.

    Not my cup of tea, however you may want to post a link. I know a certain somebody with a 1990 Camaro who may be interested. If bums getting on a bus are laughing at your "car" they may as well laugh at your hat as well.

    Hmmm, now you've got me thinking. I never even considered a fur hat. That particular model hat may be a bit too "hip-hopy" for my liking. I could go with one of those Daniel Boone coon tail hats, though.

    Per dictionary.com:

    cab·ri·o·let   [kab-ree-uh-ley] Show IPA
    noun
    1.a light, two-wheeled, one-horse carriage with a folding top, capable of seating two persons.
    2.an automobile resembling a coupe but with a folding top.

    Cabriolet, truly is an elegant word. Love the way it rolls off the tongue; cabriolet.

    Interesting suggestion. Care to post a link? I could do that sans red feather. I'm thinking the feather from the tail of a bald eagle would look very nice against my sparkling graphite cabriolet.

    I'd much rather you ride in his SN95 as well. Then when I pull up and drop my silky cabriolet top I will kill two bums rather than one. Savvy?

    Not really. Is it over the top expensive? Is it laden with status?

    What do you guys think of this hat? You can tell by the smug look on it's owners face that it is dripping in status. At under $70 it has quite a nice status to dollar ratio as well.
