4-5k is a killer deal. Bet and SS Vert from GM would cost more than that.

Only worry I would have is the integrity of the car cutting the roof off.

What kind of other chassis reinforcements were done? I saw rocker and rear structure reinforcements, but were SFCs added too? Interesting - but a little scary to have that much of the car chopped up. At least it looks like they're pretty knowledgable in this

MORE PICS'!

I don't think it will change but man I hope it does.

It is 4-5k plus labor so I think it may not be that great of a deal because of all the hours involved to do it.

I don't think it looks that great at all. Just my 2c.

After looking closely, you actually lose the rear quarter windows..

Nevermind.. I'll stick with the hardtop afterall. Spend the 4-5K on a used '00 -'03 Honda Nighthawk 750.

I'd feel safer waiting for the factory version. I'll never forget how bad the cowl shake was on my 69 SS/RS ragtop. I don't feel any cowl shake on my GT500, although there is no way it can as rigid as the coupe and I have not hit any bad railroad tracks with it yet.
I'd love to see a black Camaro convertible with red stripes in my garage parked next to the red GT500 convertible with black stripes!

I don't like it! I don't like that they took the quarter glass away, and that 3rd brake light is just a bolt on. It looks terrible. BTW the placement of the onstar antenna could have been better too! that just looks bad! I think I will just wait for GMs!

Too pricey 4-5k Plus labor and it takes 4-6 weeks. That ain't gonna cheap.

Also, it looks cheap with the 3rd brake light and antenna.

Also, raise your hand if you want to wait another 4-6 weeks to drive your car after we waited all this time.

Good thing I like the coupe.

No thanks.
