Nice!!

Did you notice the inter-cooler hoses being wrapped, quite nicely in there? Seems to concur with what was found in the brochure.

I wonder if the convertible top will have the same problems the 2011 and 2012's do. If so, no thanks. Not interested. A shame really.

But it has MR and PTM! Those two things alone should overcome whatever shortcomings that have been experienced in other Camaro convertibles.

I kid, I kid! I fully suspect GM will have solved the few issues that were apparent in the initial convertible offering, especially given what you will be paying to get into one. The last thing GM would want is to have their flagship pony car have water in the rear floorboards or top rub issues.

The big difference in that quote is you drive the Camaro and you PUSH a Ford.

Vert or Coupe are both expensive. After you add an auto and the rest of the options plus tax you are looking at close to 60K for a car. I just don't see it in these days and times. Nice looking car though.

To be picky - still not a fan of the camaro engine cover. Think they would have tied it up nicer than just throwing a plastic cover on top.
