Who's Purchasing a Convertible Poll??

There seems to be a Love/Hate discussion anytime a thread with preproduction/production pictures of the 2012 convertible comes out; many times with discussions revolving around the antennas, brakes lights, key holes, top colors or whatever with regards to the convertible. Just curious as to how many persons are planning on ordering without worries of the above debates. Really don't want to get into the "why I don't like it", "it would be better with hardtop" or anyother discussions about what you think needs to be changed.

With just 3-4 months before "probable" ordering of the 2011/12 Camaro convertible, how many C5 members are Definitely purchasing and on waiting list, Definitely purchasing but NOT on waiting list, Considering purchasing as first Gen5 Camaro, Considering trading in coupe for convertible at some point, completely happy with my coupe and do not now or ever want a Convertible

Not me, I've never been into the verts. Had a Jeep Wrangler, couldn't stand all the noise. I'll keep my Coupe and hope to hell that I can afford a Z28..

I voted that I'm happy with my coupe but if I didn't already have it I might be considering a convertible. I'd really like to have t-tops but I doubt that will happen from the factory on the 5th gens.

I have already ruined three computers .

Every time I see a pic or thread about the convertible ,I drool all over the keyboard.

May not be posting for awhile; I think I just fried another one.

I live further north than you do (as the crow flys per se') so what's the problem

Seriously, the vert will be a somewhat DD for the Mrs. with it going to bed for Nov.-March-ish. Nice to have another "beater" for the bad months/weather.

Just seemes to me with all the postings of people cars getting keyed, and
vandalized, I think people would cut the rag top's? Also easier to get into to steal something? Just my 2 cents

First car I ever had was a convertible. 63 mercury comet, This car will be my retirement present, I gave camaroscotty 500.00 yesterday to get on the list.I am now just waiting for the final color combos before I order. If someone cuts my top it will give me a good excuse to get a custom color replacement coutesy of my insurance

I'm playing the waiting game. Not a first model year buyer because the car always gets better with age. Living here in montana, the camaro will not see any winters, and therefore won't be driven at least half the year given the way the weather has been lately. Which got me to thinking, why not consider the convertible?. I will definitely wait to see and drive one, and also wait to see how the 5th gen evolves. Anxious and waiting!!

I have owned 2 and did not like them. Only bought them because the price was right and i needed a car at those times. One was a 1963 Pontiac tempest the other a 1965 ford fairlane.

I want a Z28! If they make it in a convertible, that's what I'll buy. If they only make it in a coupe, then I'll buy the coupe.
