I'm going to take a risk based on the (canadian $) price and assume that he is talking about a '95-900 SET convertible. I would suggest *not* buying a that car. It was the first year of the 900 convertible and there are some known issues... in particular the top (tonneau) motor. There is also a water pump issue on the early NG900's as well as a few other things that they tuned out over the first couple of years. I'd highly recommend that you buy a '97 or later if you are looking at a convertible. There are a few known issues with the later models too but nothing that will break your wallet. Don't buy any NG900 that has an exceedingly stiff clutch. Stiffer that Japanese is expected as it is manual (no hydraulics to help) but if it is overly stiff, look for another car ($1000 USD to do the clutch). That said, I have and NG900 SE turbo convertible and it is a wonderful car. With the top down it just adds to the pleasure. I look for reasons to go drive it. Bob
