Thumbs up Drop Top Customs' Camaro Convertible ready for SEMA 2009

As featured on Homepage.

Here's a preview of Drop Top Customs' Camaro Convertible SS which will be showing at the SEMA show next month. For anyone interested, this custom conversion costs approximately $18,000. This is the second builder to produce a Camaro convertible. The other was custom built by NCE.

For now, these custom Camaro convertibles will have to do, at least until GM begins producing the 2011 / 2012 production Camaro convertible, which coincidentally, is being shown to dealers for the first time this week.

Have you all thought of something similar to what Mercedes did with a hardtop convertible option?

looks good, im just not understanding the reason to go through all the trouble, R&D and funding of this project to sell an $18,000 drop top when GM is realeasing one themselves in a year or so for prob a lot less.

Looks good, but dont like the exposed pop-rivet deals that hold the tonneau cover kill it for me. Plus, for $18K I'd want a hard cover.

I llllike it!
Why change the upholstery?
This is the first time I have seen the dash and door trim in yellow.
It looks good, but I believe its too much.

It looks great down, BUT... I do not like the look of a soft rag top on this car! It needs to be a hard top convertible or none at all for me!!

Ragtops only look good to me when there isn't much of a top, like on the Vettes. If they came out with a hard top that would make my day.

By the way, the car used looks sweet
