beautiful car.

I'm not a big vert fan, but this Camaro makes me change my mind... Best looking vert on the market IMO.

I don't know about best looking (actually I do . . . ) but it is certainly the most massive convertible this side of the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. What a giant brick!!

The JC Whitney 3rd brake light and shark fin antenna placement are a shame.

Laugh at your own peril but the Mustang of course looks way better. The BMW 3 series does to as well as the new Mercedes E Class and the old CLK, the Mazda Miata looks better. I think that the Infiniti G37 loos way better.

What looks worse? hmmm. . . . the Lexus IS, the Chrysler Sebring . . .

How high is that front end? Looks like it goes all the way to the waist of a 5'8" person. Its like a brick on wheels, I wonder what the aerodynamic coefficient is for this thing? The GM's wind tunnel broke?

Hahaha omg the mazda miata?...your hate has blinded you son.

And no, the Mustang Vert doesn't look better, the only thing on the Camaro that doesn't look good is the back atenna, GM tried to change it, but for some reason I can't rember why, they couldn't

I kinda like parts of it myself but speaking of big its 4168 lbs worth. Thats just massive. Camaro and Mustang need to get smaller.

I thought FP told us that the Vert wouldn't gain much if any weight, since the Zeta platform was so rigid to begin with.

Hmmmm..................... that must be more of his math "issues" coming out.

Yeppers, that is one fat car. However, on GMI, it is fabulous, because it is road hugging weight. LOL

who cares how much it weighs... Its a vert... 75% of the people who buy these things are 50 year ladies, spoiled teens and grandmas.. Well thats all I see in the Mustang verts anyways...

Enthusiasts care thats who. Visit some F body forums. When the Camaro vert is almost 500 lbs more than the Mustang vert there is a weight problem. That is a HUGE difference and it does matter. Im not using Fp's fuzzy math here either that he is so famous for. Its just the way it is.

First time you make any sense . . . I see no one else than 50 y/o ladies driving this dynamic mess of a heavy brick . . . and no even.

Any Car guy can appreciate a Camaro like this and still love the Mustang. I see no reason to be a Zealot on matters like these
