Wouldn't call it rare per se, and once in awhile you'll see a hardtop for sale online. I just wouldn't call it common, nor does it tend to add value to the car. As the earlier post said, they can be a pain to store if you don't have the right garage/setup. Certainly a nice to have if you live in cold country.
