he original boxy look of the 60’s was still there, but with a sportier look, including a rear spoiler and painted aluminum wheels.

Although a new Camaro can be purchased at a staring price of about $35,000, the 2SS model leads the pack as the most expensive. That is because of all the special features that make this Camaro a standout. The base MSRP on the test model Camaro 2SS convertible was $39,650. The accent black body stripe was added, as was an abundance of black accents on the interior console, seats, doors, and steering wheel. But this, some pin striping, upgraded headlamps and taillights all bumped the bottom sticker price to $42,995.

EPA mileage estimates are just 16-mpg city and 24-mpg highway, but this car would probably not be your everyday drive-to-work commuter car. With its powerful acceleration and extreme good looks, you will want to show it off and make your fellow motorists green with envy. This is the car that says, “Don’t you wish you had one of these to drive?”

If you are looking for a small sporty muscle car that is full of class and a lot of premium touches, then this new 2SS Camaro convertible deserves a look-over and test drive. It is the type vehicle that lets you sit back and relax while it meets your own expectations of a special driving experience. If you push the pedal down though, that V8 engine roars to life and you may have to sit back up to control the power and performance.
