I'm with Ram. I'd rather see t-tops like my old 90 RS. Or maybe even a retractable hardtop. Guessing that could be cost prohibitive.

Its a convertible, its not suppose to look like, or handle like, a hard top.

It is like comparing a sport bike to cruiser. Different animal.

I am still first on the list at my dealer for the convertible. I am going to buy a Yamaha Roadliner next week to help keep the night sweats away while I am waiting.

not crazy about the convertible, and agree with others that the "fin" and third brake light really detract from the overall look

It is not working for me, looks odd on the back half especially with the windows up.

I've never been a fan of verts of any kind for 1 reason, they look so bad with the top up, unless its a hardtop vert. Just not my thing, but I'm glad to see gm rolling with it.

I do like that the soft top isn't sticking up out of the back. I hate that about some convertables.

Very nice even with windows up considering it had to be in the 50's here in Michigan.

The one thing I dont like about my Camaro is the "B" pillar.
When I met Scott (fbodfather) I asked if there was any chance for a true hard-top (no B pillar) Camaro now that the conv is coming out, since this new conv unibody is now totally reinforced. He said no, due to cost and weight issues. That makes no sense to me as most of the work is now done.
I would much rather have a true hardtop like the '69 Camaro and recent Camaro showcars instead of a convertable.

hard tops are for more luxurious cars. the camaro was and will never be that type of car. plus it would make the camaro way too heavy.

I don't know if its just me, but I don't like how the car looks in picture number 2. The car near the gills just looks weird...

I simply don't like the vert camaro...never have.

Give me T TOPs and I'm trading in my camaro for one...even Targa would be nicer.

I'd rather own an MUSTANG Vert over a Camaro Vert....and I LOVE CAMAROS.

picture is distorted because the cars are in motion. check out the wheel, it's not round.

I dont like the B pillar? (small pillar dividing the side window and the smal rear window) Hopefully you can get rid of it somehow cause it would look really stupid driving down the road with all the windows down but these two tiny black toothpicks stickin up ya know? Also im not a fan of the tail light mounted on the trunk, now if they incorporated it into the trunk lip like some of the 3rd gen Irocs then itd be nice but i dont like it just chillin on top of the hood like that

All that said though, fix those two issues and i think the car would look amazing with the top down, the sleek, muscular lines and bulged in the car just make it look awsome with the top removed

PS: Im a huge fan of T-tops but i agree with GM, they're not for this car, this is a much higher-class Camaro, trying to pull the world away from the "white trash" stigma, and as much as i love them T-tops just conjure up ideas of sickening Burt Reynolds satyres, 80s mullets, and flannel xD
