2011 Camaro Convertible video from San Diego!

Hey folks,

I was one of the lucky writers to be able to head to San Diego for the Camaro Convertible preview. I shot some video of the car and thought I'd post it here. Now, I am sure that many of you are truly Camaro experts and not in need of any of my opinions, but maybe the images may be of some worth to you.

Your more optimistic than I (or my dealer) are... with the same TPW, we both estimate 5-6 more weeks...

Camaro Convertible walkthrough video

I came across this video on youtube, and it shows the convertible in and out, including the top going up and down, from the inside. I am so excited to see the Convertible on the road! Enjoy!

I wonder what the maximum height off the ground the top is as it is going up or down?

I didn't realized that the litte rear windows also open until I saw the 4 window switches on the driver side door.

nice "reality style" video. Nice docu-style, simple and with many facts. Well done. It would have been great to follow up with a nice startup of that "bad-boy" SS and start cruising around a little to give us all a taste of the cruise in that sweet Camaro drop top! That ain't like cruising around in a Miata, now ain't it?!

Great video -- thanks for the post!

But am I the only one who *likes* the interior? It's clean, gets the job done, and isn't gimmicky. I don't need space age, that's not what the car is about. Keep it for the Cruze.

+1, simple and to the point.

Very similar to my old 75 Camaro, with long stretches of plastic and a nice, sporty guage cluster! I would like to see the interior simply covered in a this suede or soft touch surface, but this is something that can be done 3rd party as well. Regardless, nice like the concept!

Good video, but I really don't get why people bash on the interior, the design is amazing and why does it matter if the plastics are a bit harder then others, I don't know about you but I don't pet my dash every time I get in the car, it looks good, doesn't rattle or squeak, and I find it very easy to get at everything.

Excellent static review, and he did mention he experience driving the vehicle as well. Interesting that he didn't think the car was as stiff as the coupe considering that has been such a point of emphasis by GM. Still hate the look of the car with the top up, and with the top down, something just doesn't look right at the back of the car. I hope he's wrong about the interior. I love it the way it is and think less is more on a muscle car. I don't want "refinement" in a muscle car. I don't want NAV systems and touch screens. I like that On-Star is hidden and out of the way, keeping the dashboard clean and neat. All I want is a great driving experience, not a bunch of gadgets getting in the way. There's something wrong when someone wants the Camaro to be more like the Cruze.

Great review. I still don't understand the complaints about the interior (hard plastics comment is understandable, but the rest is pretty subjective). Overall - the review was pretty objective and I appreciate the points and comments.
