Me too, and not fondly. Some of them even went so far as to have a fiberglass shell between the regular roof metal and the vinyl. I inherited a POS Ford that had one on it. It was simple enough to take off the shell with the vinyl, but the adhesive they used was a HUGE hassle to remove.
F-U-G-L-Y doesn't even begin to 'cover' it.
