At the upcoming 2009 SEMA Auto Show, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is expected to be the focal point of many tuning companies. At last year's show, the tuner's favorite was the Dodge Challenger. One reason for the Chevrolet Camaro's popularity is that a factory-built convertible is at least 18 months away since GM has put the program officially on hold.
For the SEMA Show, we know that Drop Top Customs by Convertible Builders is building a Camaro convertible.
Convertible Builders owner Jeff Moran shares that he doesn't believe it would be a "sound business move for GM to take on a project that has greater potential to lose money than to be profitable." However, the low-volume soft-top business has been good for Convertible Builders, a Florida-based conversion company established in 1976 as Coachbuilders Limited.
Aside from the 2010 Camaro package, Convertible Builders also offers conversions of the Challenger as well as the Cadillac CTS and the Chrysler 300C.
The car costs an additional $18,000 over the price of the stock hardtop. The company has started to take orders for the Camaro convertible. To view the car's development progress, you can check out Drop Top Customs' Facebook page or its Web site.
