Greetings

I thought I would start by introducing myself. I have owned 3rd and 4th generation Camaros but do not currently own any Camaros. My interest here is that I hope to offer some generalized feedback regarding the Camaro Convertible. I am an engineer, and I have been responsible for convertible engineering but not for Camaro. My current responsibilities do not relate to convertibles either. Beyond that, I'll tend to remain generally anonymous because I don't want to be mistaken for anyone with any authority to make any kind of statement on behalf of anyone with any particular responsibility.

I will say this: anyone who follows the automotive industry knows that with the economic downturn, and more specifically the downturn for the automotive industry, automotive companies tend to cut convertible programs. I think we all noticed that for a time the Camaro convertible was placed on hold. As such, the convertible top industry was really hit hard. I might be less aware of some non-domestic convertible suppliers, but before the downturn there were 4 or 5 suppliers of convertible tops. Now three of them have undergone mergers and there are basicly 2 convertible top suppliers.

Anyway, my interest will mostly be in the Camaro convertible sub-forum, and maybe if any convertible questions come up I might be able to offer some suggestions or insight into the nature of convertible tops.
