    Sometimes people comment to me about how impractical my roadster is, but I disagree, especially as compared to many other sports cars. Recently, I came across the below review of the iconic Lamborghini Countach, which is pretty funny, and certainly makes our Roadsters extremely practical by comparison. I especially liked that Lamborghini recommends opening the door and leaning out while backing up in order to see better.

    I've never doubted the Roadster's practicality. Now I know why.

    Any thoughts on what the Roadster's Doug Score would be? I'm thinking somewhere around 65...

    Doug did a roadster review here...

    But it was done before he started the Doug Score thing:(

    Impractical? I agree with you in your comparison, especially with the Lamborghini! I would have to know what these people who are making this assessment are basing their opinions of what is "practical" and what is "impractical." I'll just bet they are thinking of the price tag as most people do....What works for you and what works for someone else can be two totally different things. I say you're the best judge of what's practical to YOU! Nice choice and to me, it's VERY practical. Love it!
