    The way I drive, you'd never know it The only way it matters is if you drag race all day. other wise, it can all come down to the driver

    but then you get into the whole roll bar deal, bla bla bla, defeats the purpose of a vert.

    so what did/are you getting?

    Meh a few of you are biased.

    I have the money for a vert, I jsut really really don't want one.


    I think they're ugly up and down, leave it to a roadster boys.

    The T-top still fills in the lines of the car and still gives you some air and sun. Also, you just look like a Badass driving a t-top.

    The vert camaro's also look like a seabring. Always bothered my girlfriend approached in her car, always thought she got a camaro haha.

    Also, I tie verts to be a feminen thing, and T-top/hardtop more masculin.

    I think mine weighs around 3800 or so...although I add quite a bit to the total weight myself. I am right at 300 and 6'5". Yet another thing I love about F Bodies....room for us big guys!! Anyway, they are definately heavier but I ran a 14.0 when mine was stock, before I learned to drive it. It has an A4. I was pretty proud of that. I know you used to hear all of those old stories about mid 13's stock but those guys were playing X Box. I can never see myself being without a convertable now. I had a 1969 Caddy Vert in HS before my first Firebird. Didn't know how much I missed it until I got my current baby. And for anyone who says verts slow you down...11.85 in the 1/4 at 117 with nothing but bolt-ons and a 100 shot...Stock suspension. I know there are tons of guys here faster than that but it is still pretty good and I am making a point. With a Vert, you can have the best of both worlds if you do a few things the right way.

    I used to feel like you about it being feminine and all with the vert, till my girl got one. she's got a stang gt and when the tops down and you hear those pipes roaring with less interference that's awesome. I decided my next camaro would be an ss vert 6spd, when the people brought the car out for me to see it, it took my breath away, my ss sits pretty low and those 17's look GOOD on it! There is something different about my car. I used to be stuck to the t-top look like you man but it changed, trust me its more fun to show off in a vert than with t-tops hahaha. fun both ways but more fun with the drop top. also I used to think the vert 4th gen camaros were ugly too, but hmmmmmm, mines really different! It's hard to put into words.

    with a vert you're more of a sleeper too I think, people don't usually associate a vert as being fast. I love making people look stupid when I leave'em standing.

    Convertible is the way to go if you want to cruise, and don't mind the road noise that comes with them (top up or down doesn't really change the amount of noise). If you want the performance with the top down feeling then t-tops is the obvious choice. Don't do the tannue cover and the bar though, just seems way to ricer to me!

    I have both, a 95 vert z28 and a 98 SS T-top. I prefer the T-tops based on look and overall feel of the car. Verts rattle alot and are impossible to see out the back with the top up. I'd go with t-tops so you have the best of both worlds.

    You must not be running SFC's on your Vert. Mine is quiet.

    Yup...BMR weld in SFC's and Tower Bar are the way to go. I can't tell you how much they help. No more door panel pop offs while at the strip. And as for you guys who don't think you can race if you have a vert are nuts. All you need to do is stiffen it up a bit and you are ready to go. I can't believe there are so many Vert Haters out there. Must be this new generation out there. Tell you what, you get the coups and I'll have my vert. I'll cruise with the top down to the strip and then you can read my plates when I'm walkin off from you.
