That is beautiful for a 'vert. Usually cars look horrible with the top up (i.e. 350Z 'vert), but this has a very smooth top, and it looks very impressive. The front looks very mean, esp. with the halos. Im not a big fan of the sharkfin being in the middle of the trunk, but ill get over it. It really needs a bath tho, but other than that, I love it, just as much as i love the coupe (if not more )

VERY nice. Even the Bumper. (gotta counter the mood in here)
The top is phenominal...a big on that point.3

And I do like that nose, honestly. It's much more aggressive...much more "meaty". Fits the SS nicely.

EDIT: Threads merged.

Honestly I don't even notice the lower grill. Looks bomb either way, to me at least.

If it looked good you'd notice it looking good. The bland lower grille is invisible to you.

Mindz...you see that?!?! a vert SS...

You going to hold out for it?


I must say.....this is probably one of the first vert's I've ever seen that I actually thought looked so good that I'd consider it. They did an EXCELLENT job w/ that top!

I also am pleased with the SS bumper, but I'll have to reserve harsh judgment until I see it in person.

Something many of you could try out.

I may be holding out for the convertible now (since I can't get t-tops...no, I'm not starting that conversation again...lol).

But, do they really have to screw up the looks of the car with the shark fin mounted on the decklid? I mean damn, how bad does something have to look before they fix it?

PLEASE, GM, if you're listening, don't put that there....find some other way, almost any other way, to mount the OnStar antenna.

I can see that the bumper and lower grill look different from the SS to the V6's. The single biggest difference is the fake scoop. Some people hate the idea of anything non-functional on their Camaro. Thats fine and understandable. But beyond that the differences are minimal (yet existent) and I cannot understand how so many people have such strong negative opinions of it.

However, that is getting this thread a little bit side tracked soooo . . . I think that is one of the better looking 'verts out there. Maybe its because I don't like 'wedge' convertibles, I'm not sure. Oh, and I really like the Camaro in black

why do people get offended if you don't say the rosiest thing about the car...

this is a site dedicated to camaros...not pink volkswagon beetles we don't all have to be so nice and uptight all the time ....

This is america why is everybody worried about being so politicaly correct why can't we have an opinion and thats that

I'm not advocating someone shouldn't have an opinion, but the tools that have been posting since release day all the 10000 reasons they are going to buy a Challenger or GT500 instead of Camaro are what gets us a little sick of hearing it.

So you think the bumper is not great...on your computer screen....and that makes you want to buy a Mustang instead. Who effing cares, go write a blog to MM&FF or whatever it's called, this is a Camaro forum where we have great reputation of being pretty positive (about the car that is). That's all I'm saying.

Now that being said, I do agree with some opinions that the decklid is looking pretty cluttered, but I don't see any way around that with the industry standards on the taillight and the obvious crux on the XM that we have in today's society. It doesn't mean I want a Mustang now, it just means, "well that's a cluttered trunk, and it takes away from the rear end a little".

See the difference?

then whats the point of writing anything since like you say nobody cares...its a forum to discuss opinions...

and who said i was going to buy a mustang??

just because some people have a certain taste doesn't make them tools...

this thing still looks like an iver and we really haven't seen a completely done ss...that front bumper makes the ss look incomplete...i can gaurantee reviewers will question why they changed the front bumper and that its less attractive

hmmm I think they said the same thing about the CTS when it came out. too unique/ugly. but I believe it's one of their best selling cars.

not talking about the new cts. . .I'm talking about when they debuted the CTS back around when matrix reloaded came out. . .all the car mags and everyone said it was polarizing and ugly/unique. . .now it's one of the best selling caddies out there.

most people feel the changes were for the better. my biggest concern isn't the bumper. it's the interior. . .but that was perfected in my book.
