I think the Camaro was already looking pretty dated, but with this new convertible version, I have to say, it looks pretty dated.
Camaro's, like they always have since the 70's, just look cheaply built to me .. the paint quality always seems less glossy, the plastic parts stick out like a sore thumb ... the interior .. don't even get me started on it ...
