Like this quote from WSJ

Talking about opinions he had wrong

"Sometimes, in the fullness of time, I actually start to like a car more. In the case of the Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible, I started liking it more the minute I got out of it. Driving this big, heavy V8-powered cruiser fast is like trying to play tennis with a wooden racket: Yes, it can be done, but it's demanding and hard on the wrists. And yet, whenever I see one of these cars on the road (or, here in North Carolina, in a ditch), I think, Wow, that is some massive styling. I don't care if it is a hunk. This car always looks like it just shot a 12-point buck or won the Bassmasters Classic. It's a special redneck kind of awesome."

To each his own (opinion).

The verts are a little bulky...especially compared with other convertibles. But they look so awesome...who gives a sh*t?

The new Camaro VERTS who cares if they weigh a bit more than the coupes
Each to their own..IMO If I ever get me vert, the first thing I'm looking to do,
is put me girl on a diet I bet the vert could be reduced in weight greatly /

Just one thing to think about when it comes to verts that I hadn't thought about. If you plan to track your car you cannot without a rollbar. It is the only thing I don't like about my 370Z. I live just a couple hours from Watkins Glen and cannot take it out on track days or to race schools.

Being kind of a redneck myself I liked the reference. The car is heavy but it does not bother me. I do fight that weight when racing and lose that battle sometimes. Lol

Yeah it has more weight but it def doesn't rattle like the 4th Gens! GM knocked it out of the park with the new Camaro.
