So here I am reading Mr Agony's plan for his camaro and I get to thinking about possibly getting a 1SS and getting custom interior. After doing some quick math, having a 1SS comes out to $29,930.18, while the 2SS brings the price up to 32,448.45. That's a difference of $2,518.27.

These prices are for a 1SS with BA audio upgrade, and the RS package. The 2SS with RS package is the SS pricing figure.


With this 2500 dollars I can get get both doors and the center console wrapped in leather with DSV's prices...for a completely custom look, colors and all. Doing so means that I won't have the bluetooth/usb/4 pack gauges though. Originally, that's why I was getting the 2SS, but the more I think about it, the less I need bluetooth capability. I hardly ever talk on my phone in the car, and would be getting the convenience and connectivity package for USB port and ABL so I could listen to music. Does the 1SS have a way to plug my mp3 played into the stereo or no?

Also means I wouldn't be getting auto-dimming mirrors which I think is a cool feature.

Whatever you decide remember this...the longer you wait, the color you want may no longer be available.

After speaking with my mother and Fiancee, I will be going with the 2SS over the 1SS + interior.

My mother, father and stepfather have contacts at quite a few shops around the bay area. So I'm going to reach out to them when I get more money for the interior.

Well as of today, June 23rd (day before Transformers 2), I spoke with John (INDRpower) and it looks like I will be getting the 1SS convertible and grabbing some super sweet interior pieces (hopefully be able to afford full interior) from him when I take delivery.

I just saw the LED lighting thread from SummoneR so that fuels my custom ABL project as well. Now I just have to find a way around the bluetooth/USB package (maybe some sort of clip to store my mp3 player in.

I made these either yesterday or 2 days ago in a quick 2-4 mintues before my shift ended at work, but this is how I plan on lavishing up my interior. Top picture is original, bottom is my customer interior.

Great thread Mindz, good Idea, I constantly change my mind on what I want to do...
I like the concepts you have, very nice!

Thanks for the Honorable mention, about my LED thread.



Just my thoughts on the Vert. I think it would be very nice... but, not for me, I had an accident back in 1998, I rolled my truck 6 times after using a BMW as a launch ramp... (Accident of course) I feel very blessed to have had no broken bones, with only very minor road rash and a nasty scare on teh top of my head ((which is unnoticable unless you pull the hair back and look). It scares the crap out of me to think if I had a sun roof or a convertible...

you bring up a good point Summoner.

http://camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29766 now gives me an option to have a hard top z28 or a vert. Depending on pricing and all that.

The above post just solidifies my choice with the White with Orange stripes combination.

I will MOST DEFINITELY be installing the Baldwin Motion spoiler as it's bigger than the stock SS spoiler, but not so big that it's the blade spoiler. The BM spoiler also follows the curvature of the rear end, not straight across like nascar vehicles.

The rims look fantastic as well, but I don't know if I'll be able to afford them.

Either way, at the moment, my mods list for the vert look like this:
  • Glossy metallic orange stripes
  • NoWeeds diverter system
  • A turbo set up of some sort (not sure on single/twin or size)
  • Baldwin Motion spoiler (and possibly hood)
  • FULL leather interior from DSvettes
  • LED Lighting of some sort (nothing specific planned at the moment)
  • Convertible concept rims (white powdercoated spokes) or...
  • Baldwin Motion rendered rims (chrome deep dish with orange/cgm painted inserts)

Still getting a vert?

I'm a no stripes person. So far I'm the only no stripe voter. If you had vert, no stripes I'd say that.

White vert with orange stripes. Its the car you've wanted for about as long as I've known you on this site. I'd never buy such a car, because I don't like white, don't like vert's, and I don't like stripes. But this isn't my car, its your car.

The rumor mill is stirring with the cancellation of IBM topic. This might not bode well as if I decide on a hardtop, the color would be IBM. That means that I'd either have to make a decision before model year 2011 and buy a hardtop, or be 100% sure that a vert is what I want. I would hate myself if I waited for the vert and then decided I like the hardtop better only to have my color discontinued. Decisions decisions...


GM EITHER COME OUT WITH CONVERTIBLE PRE-PRODUCTION PICS OR KEEP IBM AROUND AT LEAST UNTIL THE VERT COMES OUT!!!

Thanks.

Not sure where you are from, but how often will you have the top down? Around here, lucky to get a couple months when it isn't raining, too hot, or too cold to put the top down. This doesn't matter to me but vert would have less room and weigh more. The vert looks great with the top down. Might just be me, but I think coupe looks a lot better than the vert top up.

More Convertible pictures have surfaced. They're testing pre-production cars in austrailia as I type this.
