The only non-girlie topless cars are cars that were designed from the ground up to be that way.

Examples:
Porsche Boxster/Boxster Spyder
BMW Z4
MBenz SLK
Shelby Cobra
Honda S2000
Toyota MR-S
& Dare I say it: Mazda Miata

Notice all of them are actually "roadsters," not "convertibles."

Girly:

The only vert I think that's not inherently girly is a RR Drophead.

The regular Boxter(S), Z4, SLK, and S2000 are actually convertibles.

So jealous. That car exudes presence. Polished aluminum hood?

07' CPO. Asking 55. Meaning they would take 50 shipped I would think. Here in D/FW at Park Place Bentley/Maserati/Porsche/MB. Heck, buy it because it looks like a steal. Not a handler like the others mentioned but it gives your want for a vert/luxury/power and only 55...throw the diff back into the market.
The AMG CLK vert is a terrible car, honestly. We had a CLK55 vert in the family for a couple years before we all decided it was just terrible at anything other than accelerating and braking; Horrible ride comfort, bad cowl shake, gooey but heavy steering, unimpressive transmission, cheap interior with easily scratchable surfaces and hard, unfomfortable seats (coming from a guy who thinks the seats in the C63 are perfectly comfortable).

CLK DTM Vert = Why wouldn't you get the CLK Coupe?! What's the point of getting a DTM and ruining the balance by cutting off it's roof.

Back to OP: Get what YOU want.

Lol, I have friends that people think pay for their own stuff but they really don't. You cant really vouch for the OP unless you live with him or have been his good friend for 10+ years.

I remember he said he made lots of money with stocks and investing but it's kinda hard to believe someone at his age is doing that well without a huge boost from his parents. Either way, good for him.

I know this - I meant to quote his other post too because his main gripe was about not having a roof over his head

Who cares, I mean really. If someone's got something, they've got it - it makes no difference to me how. Sounds like someone's just a hater (as much as I hate that term, it actually applies).

Thats my point. You want rigidity, balance lightness why would you get a convertible for? If I had a CLK DTM trust me I would rip the crap out of it. I like the E90 M3 E92 M3 but I hate the E93 even if it comes with a retractable top. Why would I buy a convertible Shelby?
If I ever get a convertible I would drive a slow convertible like an MG,Miata or something like that and enjoy the scenery.

Guess that splains the asking price from sticker. Cowl shake...no bueno.

I'm just adding onto what Jaykay and mcmuffin said. It's just annoying if someone says they buy the car when their parents do, why do they feel the need to lie. And i'm not saying the OP isn't paying for the car, i'm just talking about this type of situation in general.
