I love it with the top down and think it looks fine with the top up.
+ Their was talk of doing a hardtop through GM, GM said nope !, so the rag-top works for me !

Excellent quality pics, just not sure I like the topless version. Curious to see the weight difference between the two and what kind of rigidity loss we're going see.

The girlfriends father has a 69 camaro on a bronco frame I believe. Looks something like that. Unforunately the body is so rotted away its (in my opinion) not worth salvaging.

I should go take some pics of it.





I do like the looks of the new convertable. Can't wait to see them on the road!

I believe you're right, it looks wider.

Looks sexy though.

If you don't like the car then its not meant for you. Yes I prefer my 2SS/RS hard top over this, but like I said its not meant for me. Mark my words 90% of these will be V6's. Chucks will love this car(and that's fine)!

It looks good just because it's a Camaro. I've always been a hard-top fan, personally.

Yeah, I'm just not feeling the whole rag top. It doesn't look horrible with the top down, but still not anywhere near as beautiful as a hardtop. Kinda sucks that's how this style is, not even T tops would look good.

Any convertible ruins the sweet lines of any car, especially the Camaro and Corvette. Top up; the car looks like a spinster caught in a sudden downpour with a casually arranged sack upon the 'head'. Top down; they seem to have something missing making your dome the bulls-eye for strategically-placed bird-launched refuse; i.e.; guano, for the uninitiated.

My considered opinion.

Everyone keeps giving their "honest opinions"; but maybe some of it is jealousy and/or fustrating they couldn't wait for one.

In a previous poll I had posted, almost 25% of pollers were definitly buying or considering buying.

It's really disheartening to those of us who have shared in the happiness and excitment of the coupe owners, to constantly get beaten down about the looks of this or that, or it should've been a hardtop, or it's a disgrace. It really is starting to take the fun and excitment out of my upcoming purchase by all the danny and debby downers out there

Go over to the Z28 thread for a while and pick on the price, looks, engine type or whatever and give us guys a break for a while.

Good call guys, to each his (or her) own. Not every opinion NEEDS to be expressed. If your new co-worker is ugly, fat, ginger, bespecaled, or whatever....do you feel compelled to give your opinion on them? I sure hope not.

One would think, I am having a mid life crises among many other problems I'm not in the market because of it's looks, at least the top. I for one just want to enjoy life with my wife with the top down.....

I like the vert OK it is a Camaro after all! I am just not a ragtop guy, verts and vettes are 'bout the same to me, chick cars or plastic surgeons or like goldchainer golfer types, not that any of that's bad, its fine. I am really happy about the vert and I'd ride around in one, just not buying it. However I did use it as a barganing chip towards a color I really like the wifes not so hot on, orange lol. If the coupe Z28 doesn't get some new awesome colors I may go for the orange By the way happy for all who love the vert and are getting one! GRATS! Hey my Dad's none of the stereotypes I kind of think of when I see a vert or a vette, but he LOVES convertables!

I've been waiting so long for this damn thing, I just bought my airplane tickets to go down to the LA Auto Show so I can see this thing for myself, up close and personal. If I'm putting money down to buy this thing, I want to see it with my own eyes first!! Anyone else making a trip to the show to see it?
