Yes. 75mph is about 2500rpm.

And mpg readout would be cool.

My temp/compass mirror is pretty sweet. I might put one in the truck, too.

I can do that with my scanning software... Been a while since I've messed with that program though.

i like the convertible top idea, but we all know why that didnt come to fruition. i dont think a t-top would look good, or a targa on this car, but a power sun/moonroof would be nice... i might attempt it in a couple years. get a whole roof off of a cavy or sunfire, (or maybe g6 with the fancy one), and graft it in... a lot to look into.

Why not just get a power sunroof from a stock Z26 and use that? I know someone who has swapped roof's on two of his beretta's to get the power sunroof option.

there was a power sunroof stock? that must be very rare! i have only ever seen pop ups, and not even that many beretta's have those. 90-93 gtz's are mostly what you see with pop up's.

you can go to a major tint and custom shop, we have ziebart in town here, they did an aftermarket pop up sunroof on a friends beretta 10 years ago. it cost him around 1000 installed! they did have options for power as well he said.

I think there were stock power ones...
I'd have to ask John again if his are power, but I could have sworn they were.

If not then he simply took the roof since it had the drain channels and everything and was the factory type install, rather than having a trim piece around the sunroof thats glued down.

Are you cutting the hole though? LOL thats typically what people don't want to do, and outsource which ends up costing the most when doing a sunroof.

I actually have a SFC sunroof in my car which I think was originaly done by the dealer when the car was purchased, it was an after thought and not "ordered" from GM that way.

John's sunroof cars are not power, power sunroofs were not an option in these cars.
