Custom Built T-Top Chevrolet Camaro for $6,500

You couldn’t get more American in the 70’s and 80’s than at the wheel of a Chevy Camaro with a T-Top and an eagle decal on the hood (maybe even a mullet). Since convertibles had a bad rep for not having the necessary structural rigidity and safety, the T-Top was the way to go.

Drop Top Customs, the aftermarket customizers known for making convertibles, have now decided to bring the T-Top back in the form of a kit for the current Chevrolet Camaro. While it's not a factory option, Drop Top tell us there will be no issues with structural rigidity, even for the most powerful 6.2-liter LSA supercharged versions.

As far as we're concerned, T-Tops look good and it’s time they came back (together with pop up headlamps). Let’s just hope it doesn’t leak, squeak and rattle like the old T-Top Camaros. The advantages with a T-Top are obvious: since it is cheap to convert from the coupe, development costs will be lower than a convertible and you can have no roof and still have a usable trunk.

GM should definitely offer this as a factory option. With their own convertible expected to enter production in early 2011, this is currently the only way to feel the wind in your hair at the wheel of a Camaro.

The kit will make it’s debut at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, and should be on sale by November. Drop Top Customs will charge you $6,500 for its kit, which you'll add to the base price of the 2010 car - between $29,775 for the LS model and $34,180 for the 2SS version. The overall quality of fit and finish looks really good... too bad it’s not glass panels, though.
