I just happened on a site that sells "Astro Tops". Anyone familiar with these? :confused:

lady80,

I remember Astro Tops from back in the early '70s before glass tops were available from the factory. I think they were tinted plexiglas back then. I'm not sure if they are the same now or not.

Hi Tom, I think your right, from what I could gather they are acrylic (?) I figured at that $ they couldn't be glass.

lady80 ~ hmmmmm...as I look thru my April issue of Corvette Fever...I see where Thompson Astro Tops does make T-Tops for the 68-82's...Thought they only made the Astro I for the C3's. OOOOOps !!:eek:
Says $479 per set with rebuildable exchange...but it says acrylic lens.

Lady 80,
We have one of the astro tops on our 81. It is ok but I would not recommend it for a long trip. In heavy rains it does leak. Your t-tops are much better. Also, this astro top is harder to put in and out then the regular t-tops.
