Question Vinyl Top

I've searched through the forum and googled it, but I've yet to see it. My question is has a vinyl top, or anything of the sort, been done on the Gen 5. If so does anyone have photos?

Thanks in advance

Not a good look for a Gen5. Actually my 69 originally had a vinyl top, it looks so grandma that I took it off.

I don't say "gross" because I don't like vinyl tops, just not on 5th Gens. I have a '67 Firebird with a vinyl top that I love...

curiosity

I appreciate the interest and concern. but these answers hardly answer the question. The assumption that it would be gross" or "horrible" can't be proven unless someone tries it. I really don't see how much worse it could look than a convertible top. It's really just curiosity, and I'd personally like to see a 5th gen go really retro.

I am not a fan of the pebbled vinyl look on a modern car, but it appears that it was a nice quality install. Personally, I would stick to a vinyl wrap on the roof to give a similar but more modern look. Plus, it's easily reversible.
