Ive just found out recently, GM made the tops different in 2017, the top pulls the back off of the back window area to allow the hard tonue cover to pull out, electrically.. as the top starts its stage of folding it self into the trunk area, once the top is fully set into its home the tonue cover locks it self into the area the old vinyl ones would cover (behind the back seats), making the hole process simple an much less of a hassle & loosing the tonue cover on the freeway/highways, Im sure the hole process is just as quick on older models, from videos I've seen, you can still drive a max of 30mph to set the top, up/down, I wouldnt recommend it, as the air pulls on the stiching /seals & im sure youll still want to not opererate the top in 60deg or lower temps, as it was recommended in older models as well, I believe it was for the hydraulics/oil in the cylinders.. Theres a lot done to the the sixth gen Camaros, like the heated stearing-wheel, air cooled seats & digital gauges, along w/color changing ambient-lighting, wished they would of done thicker strips to be brighter as they seam kind of gone in the daytime, also two or three colored HUD display would of been awesome as well & possably done the startup button (area) like the Lambos...lol
