Who cares what others think?
If you like it, and the price is right for you, buy it.
Otherwise, don't

It's a "boat top", pre-cursor to the "boat tail".

I posted a pic of one here a few months back. It was a '47(?) coupe with a big block Ford in it, subframed with p/s and discs, and with an auto (C6 I guess). It was in a junkyard and priced at $100 over the value of the weight. No one seemed interested.
