AWESOME...........I just left work (I work at the Tech Center in Warren) and I passed this Camaro in the parking lot. I stopped and got out and took a closer look around it. I noticed it had a number 7 on the windshield. I get home and sat down to report what I saw and the headlines are talking about the very same Camaro. How cool is that.

saw them this weekend at LA auto show, dont want to get rid of mine but am thinking of buying a second. Love convertibles and have owed several. The fit and quality is very good. The hard tonue cover for the corners finishes it off nicely. Great capture of the roof operation, Im not sure why GM has been reluctant to give us more of this footage. A hard top would have been nice but never could do it with those lines.

Not bad,im sure just like when the coupe first came out and most of us only seen pictures of it on c5 sight,it looks better in person,im sure...i think i would still rather have my hard top though,..now if i had the funds i would have both,so i could have the vert to cruise the florida beach's during the summer.

It's not bad ,but I don't like how the top of the window frame seal sticks up. That looks very cheap with the top down.

I'm in SE MI and would also love to see this in person. The video is great, now how about the other direction and shots of the trunk open with top up and then top down. I have a nice DSLR and Tripod and can take them if the car were available to me...

Two easy things could have made the 'vert so much better.

First, the 3rd brake light should have been integrated into the wing and/or rear edge of the trunk. Looks cheap as it is.

Second that shark fin should have been reshapped to stay closer to the body. I saw many cars this weekend at the Arizona International Autoshow from other manufactures with satellite receivers that were better suited shapes than the current sharkfin. I don't even really care for it on my coupe.

However neither of these issues would stop me from buying one.

Wonder if a removable glass targa top (a la C6 vette) or T-tops will ever find their way onto the camaro... I'd be more in favor of either of those.

2nded!

Not impressed at all ... it looks very rinky-dinky. They could have spent a little more time on the finishing look with the top down. Not for me.

well honestly, I think it looks like crap, but then I'm not really a convertible kind of guy anyway. I think the coupe looks MUCH MORE aggressive. This looks like something you'd see rolling down the road in the macy's thanksgiving day parade with a miss america type contestant sitting on the top of the backseat giving her little princes wave. I really can't stand the shark fin mounted in the middle of the trunk...uhhhh. You could give me one of these and I'd sell it.

I like it. And one of my favorite things about it is that the rear quarter windows roll down and it appears that you can see out of them better than the hardtop when they're up. Really wish the hard top had better rear quarter windows.

I was waiting to see a video. When they come out with the keyless push start, I want to see a video of that too.



OP, Thanks for taking the time to share some cool pics and vids with us!!



Also, I don't see anything wrong with the fin, but then I'm not a vert guy!

I'm glad they are offering the convertible, I like convertibles, (owned a BMW 2.8 Z3 and a Mazda MX5) but I am not convinced by the Camaro convertible. Something about it just doesn't look right. I think it's the proportions.

Really quite glad now that I didn't wait for the convertible and that I got an '11 coupe instead!
