A vert can never be the best imo. I like the looks of a hard top over a cloth.

I'll give you credit for making that bold statement. I too have a 2014 vert. The best way to put this in my opinion is, the GEN5 is the best of the best in ANY configuration(that goes for V6's too, you know who I'm talkin too). One of my favorite threads are when forum members show pics of their Gen5s. There are some incredible works(and sounds) of art. I love my car the way it is as should you, that blue top and stripes look incredible. I love the verts but nothing wrong with a hardtop. This Camaro was designed perfectly out of the gate. The lines, the butt, the shoulders etc. Camaro Gen5

Bold statement.
I would say the Z/28 is the best 5th gen Camaro. There's too many reasons to list. The LS7, Spool Valve Multimatic suspension, and carbon ceramic brakes are enough reasons...

+1!!!.....HOWEVER, I will definitely agree with Joe's statement. When I'm out and about and a GEN 5 catches my eye I say to myself "damn, that's a good looking car". Doesn't matter what trim level it is.

That statement is your induvial choice and can cause a lot of heated discussions. In reality the 13 is the cream of the crop or top of the class of the 5th Gens all the upgrades of the 14 and 15 but with out the front and rear clip changes which are disliked by most enthusiast.
