Sorry I can't see spending the money on a convertible that will be out a short time from now that will be cheaper, with probably better structural rigidity, and a top that looks somewhat like the coupe top with rear quarter windows and a better tonneau cover. It still looks after market and cheap. JMO

Not only do u pay 16,000 on top of your car, but look at it this way too.
your car was sold as a coupe......if u bastardize it, it's gonna devalue the car because it wasn't titled as a convertible. I just think that THAT process is gonna get very few takers due to the cost and as well as cheapen the value of the car in the long run. IF u want a convertible i suggest u hang tight and get one when they come out. YES you may pay a lot but it's gonna be a true convertible and will easily maintain it's value in the long run.
I am not ripping this company but just suggesting that most people hold off on that one..

The real convertible sure won't cost THAT much!!! And it will be cleaner than that, but this one sure looks sweet! I miss the beautiful coupe roofline though.... that's the best part of the Camaro!

Not bad, looks good, the wheels are sweet, I agree with other posts the tonneau cover need to be tighter. Anybody that has a first gen vert knows what a bad design they were. Never should of changed from the snaps to the strap/buckle one, Maybe this one is velcro along with the snaps on the interior side. The snaps were kind of a eye sore but easy on and off and tight. Nice job guys, IMO 16K is a bit much.

I don't like it at all! The grille and rims are ugly and it looks like someone just cut the top off and put a tarp over it.

Targa? I'm a fan of T-tops, I love mine, but seems to only look right with the hatchback-style, sloping rear window...

i think the word you're looking for is 'targa top'... thats where the top comes off in one piece, but all pillars remain in tact...you'd see it on porsche's mostly..
but yea i second you i'm actually still a little pissed that we couldn't get ttops as an option.
