Wife drove a new Camaro, fell in love, and now she cannot wait for Convertible..

Wife drove a new Camaro, fell in love, and now she cannot wait...


We went to a local cruise-in last night and my wife, who some may recall from this thread, drove one! http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...nvertible+deal She has patiently been waiting for the Convertible Camaros to become available - well, she's all restless now, couldn't hardly sleep, and wants a Camaro, BADLY!!!


She did criticize the blind spots and said you really have to check the mirrors to get around them... Smart girl, also said that on her convertible, it won't be a problem - the top will always be down!!!


So... Now I have a wife who is completely in love with this new car... I thought it was bad before, wow...


...time to find something to distract her until October when the cars are "orderable" - that is, IF she keeps up her end of the bet...

Believe me she will love the Convertible They are another work of art and a second homerun for Team Camaro and the Oshawa Build Team.

Best Regards from Canada

Work of art, for sure!

Wonder what the cost will be over a comparable coupe?

So when your wife's vert comes in are you going to take it to your shop
and give it that special Callaway treatment.
Stiffer suspension, 600 plus hp, ect.?

My wife was driving one of the test cars and fell in love with the power. She liked the suspension, too - both would be options on the table...

It wouldn't surprise me if her delivery was delayed for a bit while "in the shop"
