What do you guys think of the convertible?

Pics of the Camaro Convertible:

I personally dont like where the reverse mohawk is placed and the rear break lights (would have preferred if the break lights were on the spoiler?)

what do you guys think

It's ok, not my cup of tea. I don't like the key for trunk, or the third brake light location. Also don't care for the ragtop when it's up. It looks more like a girlie mobile.

These photos don't show the whole car, but I like how they painted the windshield frame and the antenna. I'm would have preferred they hide the trunk's key hole behind a flip-up bowtie emblem. I will be looking forward to seeing more details of the top up & down.

Convertibles are no good here. I had a Z3 roadster and the top was down only 3 months of the year if I was lucky. I much prefer the look of the coupe. The spy shots of the convertible leave me flacid.

I was waiting for it. I saw the prototype and didn't like it as much as I thought I was going to. I picked up a coupe 2 months ago.

Verts are so impractical. Everyone I know that has one puts the heat on full blast in the winter and the air on full in the summer when the top is down.
I've seen tops slashed by thieves looking for valuables. Now that I think of it....there isn't a convertible I have ever seen that I liked with or without the top down!

I don't care for it. The 3rd brake light should be incorporated into the spoiler, the XM antenna should be hidden somewhere else or a flatter one should be used, and the key hole needs to be hidden better.

I wish someone would bring back t-tops!

I love convertibles for looks but for speed and less road noise, I will sick to a hard top without a moon/sun roof. Less and I like to keep it dark inside.

I am glad the 3rd break light isn't part of the spoiler. It defeats the purpose of the spoiler and makes it hard to change it to something else, if you wanted to. Granted most people won't but some people will.

there's just something about chopping off the roof that makes a car look more feminine..or makes it a more "girly" car (not that that's a bad thing..just not my cup of tea)
