Default Great T-Tops looking 5th gen Camaro

Its been forever since I dont post here, but I just saw this and knew that I needed to share. I did a quick search and found no actual "finished product" pictures about a 5th gen T-tops camaro.

Here you go enjoy.

My opinion is that GM should defenetly have this as a option many ppl enjoy it.

Never really liked the 5th gens, but this makes them so much more appealing.

Mine rarely leaked. Just had to keep them in alignment. That, and the rubber needed to be in decent shape, mine was starting to go bad on me at the corners.

I could never visualize how a t-top setup would look on a 5th gen. Wasn't sure if it would match the body styling. Well, I like those. They just need to be tinted glass like the 3rd and 4th gens were!

Looks way better without glass up there IMO. So much more clean and it's one less thing to clean after you wash your car

I like it without the glass, much cleaner look. I always have my T-top shades on because it get's so damn hot in the car without them. I personally don't like the sunroof on the Camaro, just dosn't fit the car IMO, but T-tops look very good on it. Would like to see some side views of it though.

GM could defenetly offer with/out glass if they wanted. I think they decided not to go with T-tops cause they though nobody would wanted them. However I think T-tops would be a very nice counter marketing extrategy to the the mustang panoramic roof. A lot of people do LIKE them.

Mine dont leak either. I remember when there were the "Guessing" wars in this site about the 5th gen and many ppl were talking smack as to how ugly they would look on a 5th gen and how it couldnt be done ect. Well according to those pictures they look really danm good to me.

looks out of place IMO. the 5th gen is supposed to be modeled after the 1st gen, and i dont recall the 1st gen ever having t-tops...doesnt belong.

I knew someone would do it eventually. I actually like them as hard tops. For the time that I had my Formula running they leaked and burnt the top of my head from the sun. Regardless of how you take care of them they will eventually leak.

I didn't think there was any way you could make a 5th gen uglier but somehow they did.

I do like it, but how flimsy is it with the roof cut up, especially if this car wasn't designed to be roofless? yet...
