Find a convertible car on Google Maps
If you're looking for a convertible car Stephan Sochoux has created a cool mashup called FindAConvertibleCar that will help you locate one for sale. The car search mashup combines two Google services; Google Base and Google Maps. He has used the API for both services and presents the data on a Google Map for you to browse. FindAConvertibleCar finds cars available on Google Base and lets you search them from the map by make model and year, presenting the results based on price using map markers. To narrow the search even further enter your zip code or search radius in miles. There is also a nifty little slideshow viewer which will show you all pictures for your search as you browse around on the map. (Another mashup utilizing Google Base is FareCompare).
