shark fin question

Does the fin stick up really high from the top of the car? It says on the gm website that the height of the camaro is 54.2 I need to know how much does the fin add. If anyone knows it would be appreciated.

I have an SS with sunroof...I laid a long level front-to-back on the sunroof since that is the highest point (yes, the level was level )...the top of my sharkfin was 1 1/16" above the bottom of the level. I then turned the level side-to-side and measured from the ground up to the bottom of the level and it looked to me to be 54", so that jives with the 54.2" high you say is on GM's website.

So, to be safe, if we take 54.2" and add 1.1" to that, the top of the sharkfin should be ~55.3", so I think you should have a good 1" to spare!


P.S. Not sure why anyone would want to delete or remove their Camaro's sharkfin...how will you be able to sniff out Mustangs??

I need my little shark Fin. I'm going to drill a hole in the top of it so I can instert my lightning Rod therefore I can direct 1.21 GIGAWATTS into the Flux capacitor which will activate my AFM and Save fuel for me down the road.

I came up with that idea while installing a medicine cabinent over my toilet , I fell and hit my head on the tub and thats how it all started.
