Meadow Brook Convertibles - click above for high-res image gallery

The 2009 Meadow Brook Concours was home to over 250 of the rarest, most unique motor vehicles the world has ever known. When a vehicle is available in multiple configurations and one of those variants happens to be a drop top, it's usually built in lower production numbers than its fixed-roof sibling, making droptops more exclusive and generally more valuable. That's as good an explanation as any to understand why there were so many topless rides at this year's Meadow Brook, and we've got the pictures to prove it.

Click on the gallery below to peruse some of the more striking cabriolets at Meadow Brook. Among the many convertibles on display are a beautiful Mercedes SL 300, a stellar 1954 Jaguar XK roadster and some other rare, gorgeous Fifties and Sixties models straight from Motown. Enjoy!

      I seem to be having trouble opening up these pics. Any help ?

      Can you guys PLEASE start labeling the pictures on posts like these? I'd love to know what car is featured in picture 10... but it's not labeled, there are no badges shown in the picture, and I don't know enough about pre-war vehicles to even know where to BEGIN Googling to find out.

        That is a very good point.

        the red car in picture number 10, if I had to guess, maybe a Packard, or an Auburn, or something...

        It says Supercharged on the side of the hood, and has "8" logos on all the wheel caps...
