Cool Sales Of Convertibles Are Decelerating; Blame The (Fuel) Economy

NPR has a small story (and a gorgeous photo of a suicide sloop Lincoln Conty) on the decline of the convertible linking it to the loss of fuel economy of the model due to added weight and change of aerodynamics. While this postulate is interesting, I would think it's more due to the Pickup and CUV being the way to show you've made it or you're a MAN, over the drop-top. But there could be other reasons I'm not thinking of.
