We’ve been waiting for a convertible version of the new Camaro for almost as long as we’ve been waiting for the Camaro itself, but Chevrolet has yet to deliver. In fact, the convertible was delayed by The General, so it could be more than a year before we ever see one at our local Bowtie showroom (although dealers are reportedly getting their first look at the 2011 model as we speak). That hasn’t stopped many from guessing just what a Camaro ragtop might look like.
The lucky folks attending this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, however, won’t have to rely on their imaginations to see what a Camaro convertible looks like. Drop Top Customs (founded in 1976 as Coachbulders Limited) will be showing off the car you see here, a genuine Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible, albeit one they had to build themselves. Drop Top did a similar cut job on the Camaro’s pony car title Challenger from Dodge for last year’s SEMA show with pretty spectacular results. The Camaro chop will cost owners about $18,000 at the firm’s Florida shop. If the Camaro isn’t your thing, Drop Top will also take a Sawzall to a Chrysler 300, Cadillac CTS or even a DTS if you’d prefer.
Check out the video clip of the folks at Drop Top Customs working their magic above.
