    Would I regret not having t-tops?

    So i've been trying to find another f-body ever since i had to sell mine awhile ago and i finally found one that is pretty much what i want for a great price, just a plain jane 02 z28 with a six speed. the only problem is it is a hardtop and i'm not sure just how much i would miss not having t-tops as that was one of my favorite things about my old car. What do you guys think will i regret it?

    thats what i'm afraid of, but i've been used to driving my truck for the last two years so maybe i wouldn't notice.......
    I'm defiantly going to drive it before i even think about buying it obviously

    If you're gonna miss not having t-tops, wait out until you find one. I personally prefer t-top cars.

    I have been driving my subaru for almost 2 years and i still want them every nice day. But like i said its up to you whether or not you will feel like its not as fun without them.

    I would probably miss them but with that being said I might take mine out 3-4 times a year.

    Personally, i kinda wanted t-tops but i really like the hardtop. Its a lot cooler on hot summer days and it's almost guaranteed not to leak. Plus as far as autocrossing is concerned they are pretty much the same, Only thing about a hardtop car is it has a thin sheet of metal that covers up the cutout for the t-top. Nothing that's going to stiffen up the car. For that you'll need subframe connectors. If i were you i would jump on it, car looks pretty clean.

    If it was me, I wouldn't settle for anything but what I wanted. I searched for several months to find my Z-28, black on black leather, t-top, 6-speed. And drove 4hrs one way to pick it up! If you settle for the next best car, you won't be happy with it.
    98 Z: 6 speed, Comp cam, ported and polished heads, double valve springs, long tube headers.x-pipe with Bullets, Granatelli M.A.F.sensor/ lid.,and wires, 3:73's, Nitto 555R, tuned by Tennessee Motorsport. More in the future!!!

    i dont know about the black rims seems to be alot of white camaros w/that, probably just get some silver ten spokes and a drop and call it good. maybe a cowl hood and grill down the road

    Think 10 spokes are the best factory wheel you can get from a camaro

    i meant that car specifically because it is a hardtop.
    picture looks great btw. that would be hard to pass up.

    no no no. they only made just so many of them. if you don't like it sell it to somebody looking for one and go buy a t-top car.
