The hot sun, beach fun and wild drop tops. That’s what this week’s “Topless in Miami” convertible competition is all about!
The event is organized by the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA). Officially titled “SAMA Topless in Miami presented by Haartz,” it’s sponsored by The Haartz Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of convertible topping.
The fun will take place May 31 at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne.
“There will be no shortage of convertibles at this event so we’re looking forward to seeing lots of softtops and going on plenty of open-air drives,” said Doug Haartz, international sales manager for Haartz.
The vehicles will be judged on a long list of criteria: styling, engagement, technology, top operation, ride and comfort. Awards are presented across a number of vehicle segments, ranging from small convertibles to exotics.
The top honor, “Topless Vehicle of the Year,” goes to the vehicle deemed best all around.
