    Why, oh why, won't they build one with a targa top? Each one is built on a convertible ready frame, so it should be a no brainer.

      Good point, BUT it might actually add to their sales. Back in '10 i asked a ford engineer about this during press days. He said that these types of things were considered when they designed the Mustang. Targa or T Tops is something that none of the other domestics offer. You can go aftermarket with the Camaro, though.
