Hardtop has been out since may. They won't be coming out with a hardtop vert.

I need top down pics and production model pics of third brake light to make my decision and order. I'm 99% sure it'll move though. Anyone with a higher than stock spoiler will be blocking the third brake light and it will be useless.

I'm not a fan of convertables so I'm a little bias here, but the rear of the vehicle just doesnt look right. I've seen the Corvette convertables and they look really good, little difference to the coupe, but thats just not a Camaro to me. I'm reminded of the 4th gen Converts which had the same problem.

I might get flammed for this, but to me, a Camaro is a coupe and a Vette is a convertable.

But, if its going to be done, hide the antiena in the windshield pillar, and work the 3rd light into the spoiler. It would look alot better.

Sorry for the spelling errors.

I miss my 96 Z28 convertible. I figure I will just wait on this car now. Might as well buy it exactly how I want it so I have no regrets.

Why don't they just put the antennae in wind shield? Thats where it was on the '81.

Argh. Had higher hopes for it, aesthetically... Doesn't look bad, just doesn't look as good as it should.

Sunroof for me, please...

well the pics aren't the best quality nor the best angles to show off the car...not to mention the roof isn't down...the mustang vert looks ugly with the top up

not to mention the car is all dirty and not even complete with the right tires...i'm very optimistic of the final results

the main difference between the concept vert and the pre-production vert is that the concept seems to look longer and shorter

wile the pre production looks slightly more stubby but i think it will look killer in person

Tops are better now than then, and the top care products are better, My Sky was 2 years old and sat outside every day summer and winter, the top looked just as good as the day I brought it home...
