Vinyl Roof?

I was just lookig at some first gen Camaros. I saw a pic of a car that was Le Mans Blue with a white vinyl roof and white rally stripes. I was wondering if anyone concidered going this route on the new Camaro?

I had a 69 camaro , Burgundy with black vinyl roof. It looked sharp for the day, but I agree, not many these days. Maybe two toned paint would be a better option as seen in the Dale Jr SEMA ride..

Seems pretty unlikely. Have you ever had a vinyl roof? I have on a few cars and from my experience they are very permanent and no way could they be ripped off from driving alone.

If ever someone does put a vinyl roof on a Camaro it better be a V6...vinyl roof's back the day were more for the touring models and not the performance model.

As long as the roof isn't like my old Saturn. That car was great, but the ceiling was slowly falling off. I thought it was just mine, but my college neighbor had the same problem in his Saturn. I hope GM does a really good job making sure that the basic cosmetics of the Camaro stand up to the test of time. It's a shame when the car looks good for years, and then the ceiling falls off or the window buttons detach.

Happened on my mothers 81 Olds 98 once. She bought it used from the dealer and they replaced the vinyl top before she bought it. I noticed the front edge of the vinyl was coming up near the center of the windshield and told her to go have it fixed ASAP. She didn't and loaned the car to my sister one day. Car came back with no vinyl top. She said she heard some flapping noises while cruising down the highway and suddenly the top peeled back and was hanging off the side of the car. She pulled over and ripped it off and threw it in the trunk. The dealer redid it, no charge, but it can happen.

I don`t know a vinyl roof may look pretty good on the car but it wouldn`t be something I would do to mine.

The Lincoln MKZ has a vinyl roof option and I saw one in person. I gotta admit, it's a sharp look... then again, it's a Lincoln.

Many GM muscle cars from the late 60's - early 70's had vinyl tops, especially the intermediate cars - Chevelle SS, GTO's, Buick GS... Looking at pics of those cars now, I don't like vinyl tops at all. The Camaro does not need one.
