2011 verts..yay or nay?

So im just curious to how everyone feels about the 2011 convertible...do you think the Vert suits the CAMARO or no?..
why or why not?

i personally think the camaro is too much muscle to be a Vert..it jus takes away from..CAMARO.

I personaly am into the horsepower and muscle of the Camaro but to me the convertible leans more towards a luxery/cruising type vehicle.

Awesome car, seems like 1969 again when the conv was offered on all Camaros except Z28.

I feel it suits it but not for me. I prefer the look of the coupe but the vert is sexy with the top down! Top up... eh, but hell, most verts (unless its a retractable HT) look crappy up.

I say YAY!

LOL, off topic but our avatars look very similar, like if you black and white yours, it would damn near be mine!

Nice car! I love the h/h stripes and I am glad they are rare.

I've never had a vert...but I want one now. To me, this is the perfect car to be cruising in, listening to some awesome music like:

"Life's been good" (Joel Walsh)
"Take it to the limit" (Eagles)
"Africa" (Toto)
"Horse with no name" (America)

On the road, that top down would be awesome with some music like:

"Margaritaville" (Buffet)
"Ventura Highway" (America)
"Highway to hell" (AC/DC)

You get the picture. To me, the vert just stands for a new kind of personal freedom...

I like the luxury look of the vert. I call it luxury with an edge.(bad side)
I ordered white to emphasize the luxury and orange interior to emphasize the bad side. 2SS

Convertibles have always been a part of the muscle car world, FYI if you look the verts have helped the coupes/muscle car from day one., I'm for one that believes that having a vert or coupe as a option is a choice we choose but I also believe no one should down grade a persons choice.

Sorry, but our solders, men & woman fight for our right to choose & the freedom of choice, so let the flaming start.

The all new Convertible !, Welcome to the Fleet !

I usually like convertibles, but it just doesn't look right on the Camaro.

I put no, because typically (even though they cut a lot of the car off), it will either be a heavier car, or handle crappy. Its usually heavier, because they need to add more to the bottom to make sure its just as stable.

I have my car for the handle, feel and speed, I will be taking it to the track soon, being able to take the top of the car off, just isnt worth it to me

I like the way it turned out it's just that one of the main features I like about my hardtop is the choptop roof lines.

Vert

Looks great with the top down. Top UP is another story... the top looks too long or something. Too bad they didn't offer a version that removes the back seat and has a retractable hard top!

Ordered yesterday ! Now my 69 Vert will have company. My 69 ss vert is definitely a muscle car and so is the gen 5. Now the waiting begins again just like last year !

If the weather was predictable in Oklahoma I would get a convertible. However it's either too hot or too cold. Not worth it IMO.
