Convertible Toad?

Does anyone know of a toad that can be towed 4 down and is also a convertible other than a Jeep Wrangler?

The Miata makes a great toad... you never know its back there when towing, its a blast to drive and gets 35 MPG.

I have a Miata but it's automatic, I know how much fun they are Guess I should have added we have to have room for our furry companion.

What about a Fiat ? They come with a rag top but the kind that folds back but window frames still there. Weighs 2400 lbs. I am thinking of one as my first toe with a Phoenix cruiser

my smart has a sequential 5 speed tranny with an automatic clutch. there is no clutch pedal. it can shift itself or the gears can be manually selected.
there is some space behind the seats for 200# of critters and such.
