not for me. Doesnt feel right. Can't picture a 1st gen camaro with Ttops. 5th gen is a retro of first gen. This incorporates 3rd gen into the mix. Not feeling it. But to each his own. I dont doubt there is a market out there.

I loved them on my '78 Z-28. They should give Dan on "The Good Guys" one of these and get rid of that warn out TransAm. He could really smoke some tires.

the piece that runs from front to back looks way too skinny....wish it could have been incorporated with the reverse mohawk in the existing roof

Not for me. I would love a targa top like the Vette though.

As a factory option, perhaps. Still feel the T-Top roofs are a bit too 80's for even my liking.

Would rather see a removable glass roof like those on the corvette, however, if that was the case .... I would've bought one instead of the Camaro.

Sunroof is just fine for me and a lot cheeper at only $1,195 Canadian.

Looks good though, but glass would show up better in pictures rather than the colour matched panels shown here.

I loved 'em in my '95 but I have to agree with the bulk of the folks here that it's about $3k too much, unclear about what the deal is with the roof panels/storage.

Interior pics wouldn't be a bad thing either. I'll stick with my upcoming 'vert....though hard top would be a bit nicer. If I were to spend the money, it'd have to be at least a Targa.

at the rate they've been going with the camaro and camaro convertible it would be about 5 years from now before we got a confirmation that they were working on this project, and another 3-4 after that before it's released, so look for another t-top camaro around 2020.....

seriously how long does it take to make a convertible, ford released the 2010 mustang and it's convertible counterpart at the same time, GM has had way more than enough time to make a convertible, i say quit stalling and release it already. they plan on releasing it in February when it's COLD and no one is going to think, hey maybe i should go buy a convertible so i can cruise with the top down..... oh well, it will probably be delayed again anyway....

at any rate, the conversion looks ok, but something about the painted panels seems wrong, it needs tinted glass or something.

Dead sexy, too bad GM will never release one like it. I could think of better ways to spend that kind of money though

T-Top were never offered on the 1st Gens (correct me if I'm wrong). So these do look out of place on our "retro-styled" Gen5s. Just think how awkward a '69 SS/RS would look if you hack in a set of T-Tops. Also, weren't all the original T-Tops glass?
