Convertible Camaro

Interested in how many people would buy a convertible?

Please do not turn this into a "what a real man would do".

I am a Male and they are nice looking cars and I have nothing negative to say about them. I just can not see my self driving one.

The photos of he prototypes look awesome. But, I have had a Convertible, loved it and now, I have cast my lot with a coupe. Love this car too much and will be pried out of my cold hands when I kick the bucket!

I'm with poormanscamaro on the hardtop convertible. But the sunroof is enough for me.

Convertibles are cool.

But I would rather have the coupe.

I dont think a ragtop would look good on the camaro so I have to say no I wouldn't get a convertible. However, if it was a hard top then I would seriously consider it

IMHO the ragtop on the earlier Camaro's did not look right either.

from the photo's i've seen of the promo cars/test cars, it seems to have more head room with the ragtop, could be optical illusion though.. Depending on the quality of the conversion once offered, I'd probably really like one..

First car I ever owned was a convertible back in 1971. It was a 1963 mercury comet convertible. That car was fun plus it was a stick.On a nice weekend all my buddies wanted to borrow it, always drew attention from the ladies......... I just gave Camaro Scotty 500.00 dep to be one of the first on the road hopefully by spring

T-tops are cool, convertibles are cool.

The real question is, who wants the Camaro sedan?

I voted that I would buy one....

Having said that, my first preference would be t-tops....since they aren't (yet...fingers crossed) available, I would consider a convertible.

Having said that, I would much prefer a hardtop convertible.....since they aren't available (and won't be)....I would consider a convertible.

However, being a practical person and living here in Nebraska....I'll probably get a hard top with a sunroof.

Having said that, I would still consider getting a convertible...

love the look of the convert, but hard top with sunroof is good for me. Too many issues down the road with convertables in general. Noise, damage etc. If I feel the need to cruise in the open sun, I will take my buggy.
