Roof Height What should we expect?

I know the low roof on the Camaro show car look mean and aggressive. I also know that as it sits today head room is limited, so how much can they lift the rood to make enough room with out losing the look of the car?

I know they can work to lower the seating possition to help, but the key is they need to make the entry to this car livable to about anyone who would even consider buying one Height and gender considered.

I now have a 04 Comp G GP that has a low roof. It is not a problem for me at

5'11" but could see anyone over 6' and up not being too comfortable.

I love the look of the low roof but how low can they go?

If you need a reference of roof height; look for the pictures of Rick Wagoner at Woodward driving the silver car.

I know he is tall but I feel when the production car hits the market I don't think the Camaro team wants Mr Wagoner to hit his head on the roof. If they can make him happy I think we will see the roof height they will settle on.

Any Ideas of how much we will see it raised?

Im guessing you're serious since theres no smiley.

Thats nothing, now if only we could get an open air roof that wasn't a vert.

I only hope it doesn't take away from the car's current look.

I was told ~19mm by Scott, which is about 3/4". Not much at all if that is accurate.

IMO, if the we're talking about an inch. I think it'll make the car look better.

While the smoothly curvaceous Challenger looked like it was simply reissued, though in a somewhat more modern size because of its Chrysler LX underpinnings, the Camaro concept had a more contemporary and angular appearance that looked cutting edge, and we mean that both literally and figuratively.
