For me, the Camaro is first and foremost about performance. And to me, the coupe is about performance, while the convertible is about fun. And since my money is limited, I'll pay for performance before simple fun, especially since it's my daily driver.

On nice days that I would want to take the top down, I'd be more likely to ride my motorcycle.

Personally, i never liked any car that had more then two seats and was a convertable, it just dosnt look right to me, its "too open", 2 seater small sports cars are the only cars that look good as a 'vert (with exceptions of course, but generally)

That and im in Canada, and i dont think a convertable will play nice with the weather here

1) Can't wait that long.
2) Since I am folically challenged, I'd have to grease up the dome or wear a hat all the time. That would get old quick. Getting the dome fried would really suck.
3) Less security. Anybody with pocket knife could get in easy and ruin the rag top trying.
4) Lose too much room in the trunk and the back seat gets even smaller.
5) Would only use it for a fraction of the year. Top would be up 80 - 90% due to cold Winters and blazing hot/humid Summers.
6) Can't wait that long.
7) I'm sure it will be priced out of my range anyway.

I just prefers coupes. Couldn't use it much where I live anyways.

Also could convertible guys explain to me why you pay more for somethings that has less performance, safety and handling?

Vert or not to vert ?

I really really liked my 2000 SS T Top ! but it's not available... and the vert top is a constraint ... lol after 4 years wiht the sunroof in my Impala SS I hated it , broke down three times, noisy, more glass to clean, noisy, less ehad room........ I really like my 2SS/LS3/RS/AMB when it arrives

UGLY

Based on the pix by "Camaro Lives On" the whole look of the Camaro is awful with the top up.
With the top up it looks worse than Donald Trumps head!

It's costly to track a vert. I loved my two Corvette verts, but since I like to track my cars I will opt for a coupe everytime.
