Z06 Convertible

How could Chevrolet do such a thing? The eight-speed automatic was one thing, but a Z06 convertible? How could they change the beloved, manual transmission only, fixed roof coupe into a slush-box drop-top?

Oh yeah: money. Chevrolet is in the business of selling cars. And if they can make a profit by selling a particular model, they should. Regardless of how pointless the car is.
