how sick would a t-top Z28 be? any chance?
 
I think if there were any chance of us seeing a factory t-top, a Z28 would be it.

Still no chance. In fact, there would be even less chance on the Z/28 vs the other versions. There are massive structural members right above the door. Remove them (for T-tops) and you compromise the strength of the car & need to reinforce things in order to keep the it safe in a crash, as well as maintaining a stiff chassis for better handling. Re-working the underlying structure would require a massive investment & result in a heavier car.

lol! this is what I'm talking about. NO FREAKING WAY!!!!

Not to mention they would impede on the area for the side curtain airbags which is said to be the reason we'll never see them.

Angrybird 12 03-29-2013 06:17 PM

Mullet not included....:facepalm:

Ha to all, agreed. track specific Z28 and Ttops don't even makes sense. TTops started being retarded back in the late 80's anyways IMO

I agree with them bit not belonging on the z28 but retarded? Really? I for one love my t-top 4th gen because it allows me to have a vert feel without the hassle of a drop top or having to be confined to a hard top on those nice weather days.:smoking:

Never going to happen. Federal regulations make it nearly impossible. Discussed at length over the past few years.

Sorry

Yes a track car needs less structural rigidity and more flex. The chance is zero and makes as much sense as putting skinnies up front to aid in handling.

This car is not for the mullet wearing T-Top crowd. Very few will be made and they will be owned by the likes of Rick Hendrick and Jay Leno. No beer swilling rednecks need apply - LOL !!!

gmen09 03-29-2013 07:52 PM

I wish but it can't happen

ToolFan66 03-29-2013 08:02 PM

T-Tops Suck!!

Where's Joe Dirt??

Someone needs to get that domain name and just put a big:bs: on it LOL. I just wonder how many people actually click on that link and expect something to come up...

toesuf94 03-29-2013 08:45 PM

Right after they make the Z/28 El Camino SS Extreme Z71 they will put t-tops in the Camaro again. Mark my word.

GearheadSS 03-29-2013 08:51 PM

Shouldn't this be in the "Post things that will never, ever happen" forum on Camaro5?
