Modified Vert thread

Many vert owners are performing upgrades and the good ones seem to get lost on coupes in the threads. So lets see some of your verts modified and looking hot and fast!
I know there are some |(like me) who have to wait until their camaro comes out of storage but I am sure we will have a good long and interesting thread to read.
Lets see your modified Camaro Convertible ...

Who has time to mod it when they are always at the dealer with top issues?

Yes you are lucky. I have noticed a trend here. Most all of us that have had issue occured within the first 2 months or 2 thousand miles. Wonder if they just had bad runs in the manufacturing process?

We dont need to kick that horse anymore. This thread is to give props to the guys who modified their convertibles and give the other vert owners ideas.
