I'd feel safer waiting for the factory version. I'll never forget how bad the cowl shake was on my 69 SS/RS ragtop. I don't feel any cowl shake on my GT500, although there is no way it can as rigid as the coupe and I have not hit any bad railroad tracks with it yet.
I'd love to see a black Camaro convertible with red stripes in my garage parked next to the red GT500 convertible with black stripes!
Almost had a 2SS/RS, IOM, orange accent interior, 6 speed manual, sunroof & polished wheels
