Chevrolet Camaro convertible
Here's General Motors' answer to the Ford Mustang convertible, unveiled at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show. The availability of a convertible has given Ford a major sales advantage over the Chevy Camaro, but no more.

The new Camaro convertible has a classic cloth top which, GM claims, can be dropped in just 20 seconds. GM also claims this car has a stiffer body than a BMW 3-series convertible. (That's an issue in convertibles because a hard roof helps keep the body from twisting, and twisting is bad for handling.)

Besides the top, the convertible will be available with the same engine, transmission and other features of the coupe. The Camaro convertible is expected to go on sale in February, just before the weather starts to warm up.
