That would require -actual- trunk space.

I mean, there are a lot of people who don't even have a sunroof on their Coupes for even better performance.
30 years ago, I owned a small sport coupe. No A/C, so I had an aftermarket sunroof put in. While it was nice to be able to just pop glass into a raised position at the back and then drop it back down to seal it, the really nice part was when I took it completely out.

The car was a hatchback and had straps in the back that were intended to secure cargo. They were perfectly positioned so that I could lay the roof in upside down, slip the strap through the handle attached the to glass, snap the clip pieces of the straps together, and that roof would not move while the car was in motion no matter how hard I drove it.

My 16 GT that got totalled was a vert and my SS ainít. Wasnít a big deal when I bought it as I wasnít in love with the lines of the Camaro vert.

I think I told myself that as the SS Idid buy came with a Procharger and was the excuse to pic it up.

I had my top down if it was sunny and more than 50 here in the NW. people looked at me crazy but they didnít get it.

A little FOMO setting in....

Finally got a bit above freezing yesterday here in central Texas and it will probably hit the low 50's today. We're done with freezes for a while. The top will be down "soon".

lol... I hear ya! Had the tractor out this morning to plow the driveway. Wasn't a lot of accumulation, but it was starting the melt a little and was on the heavier side. With the sun hitting it, the driveway is already basically bare.

Can't wait for it to just -end-.

I have just been cruising around about 80-90 mph with no top lately, as my snowmobile does not have a top, lol. I have to pass the time somehow while I wait. It is going to be at least another 2 months before cruising with the Camaro top down for me. Can't wait! I am definitely ready!

In the Adirondacks. I have never gone to Tug Hill yet, but might have to make the trip one of these days.

I was happy last week to have a nice enough day to take the cover off and run it in the driveway for half an hour... check everything out and reposition the tarp for the next storm.
Going near 50 next week but the roads are completely white with salt... so Im hoping for maybe 2nd or 3rd week of March...

This seems like long winter due to the snow that seems to come every other day. I sure am ready to drop the top and cruise but I am afraid it will have to wait at least another 6 weeks. There is so much snow to melt and puddle everywhere and the roads are covered with salt and sand.

Thanks for this forum my Camaro craving is somewhat alleviated. Reading about what all of you folks do and say about your cars is helping me get through winter.
