Making a mockery of the new Chevrolet Camaro "Convertible"

Autoblog reader Joe Lopez spied what looked to be a Chevrolet Camaro Convertible prototype out on the street. Jazzed about his sighting, he trailed the car as it pulled into a local Detroit-area Target store. Camera in hand, he moved in for pics. That's likely when the sheer horror of the situation before him struck with the force of a Toyota Prius driven by Jim Sikes.

This was no Camaro Convertible.

Someone had done the unthinkable (and yet, at the same time, inevitable): They had fitted a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro LS with a fabric mock top. Joe's no dummy. He took the photos anyway, and posted them on his blog, 5thGenCamaro. Then he emailed us, so here we are.

As we all know, tastes vary. That established, in our books, at least, mock tops are only moderately less revolting than the ill-advised landau roof. As you can see, this is one of the more super-classy installations, including false roof bows and a ring of tonneau snaps - because those really scream modernity. The shark fin roof antenna poking through the fabric is the proverbial cherry atop this turd sundae.

As you'll see in the gallery below, there's a real convertible – a Chrysler Sebring – parked to the Camaro's right. We believe we can confidently say that this is the only time a Chrysler Sebring actually looks better to us than a new Chevy Camaro. And that, friends, is frightening. If it were a Buick Lacrosse - even the new one - we probably wouldn't care. It'd almost... belong. But this? Who does this? Click on the gallery below, then avert your eyes. Thanks for the indigestion pics, Joe!

:-Bgrin That's hideously funny. I saw a new CTS with a landau top as well. Looked really out of place, but not terrible on the CTS.
