im not a big convertable fan. i always thought that camaos and trans ams looked a little weird in a rag top. i think 2 seater cars look better as verts.

i would like a convertable with an retractable hardtop, the benefits of both a convertable and a coupe.
I dont have a garage, but then i would buy one of those for sure :P

Hey everyone, I'm new here. I've been cruising the forums for a couple months and figured I might as well register and post I'm here so often.

Just wanted to say "Thank Goodness!" after seeing the cover of that Autoweek magazine. After GM unveiled the Camaro Convertible, I couldn't help thinking "what the hell is up with the windshield surround? Why in god's name is it Silver? It doesn't match at all! I really wasn't digging it.

Now that I'm looking at some photos here though, it's nice to see that it's the body-colour. Looks alot better I think. It just seemed so out of place earlier.

I dug a little into that, and here's what I found in Autoweek...

Ford quashes AutoWeek’s ’Stang sedan report, announces Mustang-based sedan concept for Detroit
By BOB GRITZINGER

Ford officials have “categorically” denied plans to build a sedan or wagon version of the iconic Mustang, but at the same time confirmed that the Dearborn automaker will show a Mustang-based, rear-drive, four-door concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.

AutoWeek reported in its Dec. 18 issue and on autoweek.com that Ford product planners last fall met to discuss ways to take the Mustang mainstream and global, possibly by expanding the lineup to include sedan or wagon variants.

In a release issued Dec. 15, Ford said the company has no plans to expand the Mustang line. The release stated:

“Ford Motor Company today made clear that recent media speculation concerning an expanded Mustang line—including a sedan and wagon model to be sold in global markets—is not true. Mustang is an icon and will continue in its current form: a unique, two-door, rear-wheel drive, 2+2 performance car.

“At the 2007 North American International Auto Show, Ford will unveil a four-door, rear-wheel-drive concept car. The concept, known as ‘The Interceptor,’ is based on the Mustang’s rear-wheel-drive architecture but it is not a Mustang and no production plans have been announced. Additional information on the Ford rear-drive concept will be available Dec. 31, 2006.”

AutoWeek stands by its sources who say Ford is developing various models from the sixth-generation Mustang platform, due in 2011. Those sources suggest a four-door Mustang would be a strong option, especially in the global marketplace. Other options include a four-door Lincoln with independent rear suspension and a twin-turbo V6, which is rumored for a debut at the Detroit show along with the Interceptor.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
as I've said before, Ford Sells Cars GM MAKES them

god, its rediculous how ford just doesnt realize that not everyone wants a car called "mustang" you could make it look like the camaro, maybe then you'd sell more units, cus we all know thats all you give a damn about is makin profit off an underpowered, overrated pos, so you can offer craploads of diff versions... "ooooh, get the 'pony package', its got a spoiler, its still a v-6, but look now ur different from everyone...except those others that are sucked in the same way." "ooh, look, now we're offering a supercharger so you can spend $7k more for this car and only get 400 hp at the flywheel, so what if the new camaro is going to have that N/A? its not coming out for another year, so you should get a mustang now before its too late"

damn I hate ford...


sorry, just venting. no offense to you mustang owners here, i know the Camaro isnt perfect either, but fords marketing plan has just pushed me over the edge and it sucks cus w still have to wait for the new camaro.

In their, defense...and I'm running right into your sights, i realize...Ford is in Serious Trouble. it's not reported anymore, cause it's "old news", but as much as we might think Gm was in trouble, and is recovering...Ford is in deeper, and isn't recovering as fast...I should hope that they think about Profits (for a while).

Having said that, If I was a Ford follower, instead of a GM supporter...(see what I did there? ), I'd honor the Mustang as much as I could. cause it put Ford from the red, back into the yellow-green area...without the Mustang, I have strong feelings it would be a BIG 1.5 right now...

and look to happier places...spend the same 7k...maybe less, and you could get near 600hp easy at the Flywheel in the Camaro :eek:

Ford is in trouble. In all honesty, I hope they make a recovery. I like the Big American 3. We need some good competition.

Ford needs to bring over some of it's European and Australian lineup. Not the Fiesta or the Ka, but the Focus and Mondeo would sell well. I'm sure the Falcon is on its way, what with the G8 and Impala joining the Charger and 300C.

Well, the way I see it, is GM equals 1, Ford = 1, And Chrysler now equals .5 (what with their recent sale )

based on Americanship, of course...they'll have to prove otherwise, before I even consider buying from them agian.
