Looking at getting rid of the '10 Coupe 2SS and going with a '13 Vert 2SS.

Any issues to be aware of?
Also, where is the best place to buy the "Roll Bar" that makes the Vert look so much cooler? (What's its real name?)

Thanks in advance!

Roof rub marks and leaks, broken 5th bows. But a blast to drive with the top down!

The Camaro is my first convertible and won't be my last. It's fun being topless

Early verts had issues that were mostly resolved by the 2013 model. The Sport bar is the padded roll bar that you see on most verts. It's mostly for looks though with very little structural rigidity. The really cool ones have the led stoplight mounted in the bar.

I was originally going to get a coupe. But when my wife said this is going to be your last fun car, I decided to go with the convertible. I'm so glad I did, it's a blast to drive with the top down! If you like driving down the road with your hair blowing in the wind, you'll love the vert!

Love my 2013. No problems. The 2013 had a fabric, waterbag and mechanism redesign. I would not own a performance/sports car that wasn't a convertible. Too much fun.

Thanks everyone! Sport Bar! Yes, I knew it wasn't a functional roll bar, but I also new it had a "name". I got a really sweet deal on my '10 when I bought it, but deep down, I really wanted that Vert when I saw it.

Going to look at it tonight. I just hope they don't lowball me on my car.

Do it, you won't regret it. It is like taking all the stress out of your body when you put the top down and start driving away...
It's a totally different world that you can't see with a hard top.

Same here. Love the Vette but getting one is out of the question because it lacks back seats for nieces, cousins, in-laws, neighbors, etc. Everyone wants a ride! :-)

I was never a "Vette" guy. I always liked Camaro's, and I even bought myself a '69 for my 30th B-Day.

After seeing the new gen back in 08/09, I new I'd be into one of them. After getting my 2010 in 2012, in the back of my mind, I always wanted the Vert.

This was the time!

Try fitting a kid and wife in a corvette. I sold my Cadillac xlr because I put 3k miles on in four years due to only 2 seats.
