    They weren't made by Honda. A German company made a few cabriolet's of various generations and a few made it to Aus I believe, and they looked pretty horrible. The decent looking 3G convertibles getting around are all custom.

    yeah I have heard there were 2 companies that converted them into convertibles a German company and an American company known known as Solaire which is where Honda Prelelude Solaire came from Solaire was rumoured to have been asked by honda to make these. These companies were said to have only made 1st 2nd and 4th gen convertables. I am actually trying to find information on a 3rd gen prelude convertable I bought recently. I know american cars are left hand drive and I thought german cars were but am not entirely sure so am not sure if it was made there. all i know is it is made extremely well so I don't think the company made something like this as a one off it. It seems they are obviously experienced. It is RHD, looks like it was originally from Japan and I doubt it was modified in australia because the import plate and mod plate are from the same year and month.
