Cars and Concepts made the T-Tops for the GM Camaro/Firebird, Fiero and Ford Mustang in the 1980s.

Previous to that 1976 to 1981 GM made their own T-tops and Hurst Made the "Hurst Hatch" which was featured on Smokey and the Bandit. Neither was involved with Cars and Concepts.

Maybe Roger Garrison can chime in here. (Hes a Auto Body Pro)

There was another aftermarket refit kit in the late 70s that may have been C and C but I havent seen many of these. On this model of kit, the T roofs actually look like later model t top roofs.

There were two different T-tops on Camaros Firebirds. C&C did aftermarket conversions and GM did their own and are referred to as Fisher. The Fisher design is much cleaner and seals better. C&C went out of business in the early 1990s.

I think all the other t-tops are larger than the Fieros and certainly none of the weatherstrips are the same. C&C t-tops were offered through Pontiac as an option in 1988. These CJB t-tops have different weartherstrips than the others. C&C t-tops were installed at the C&C factory, by C&C authorized dealers, and by people who were able to get the install kits. The quality of the installation varied a lot. I friend of mine has an Enterra (Fiero rebodied in Canada, about 35 made). His Enterra has t-tops and they are different than the C&C...the panels are opaque fiberglass and not glass.
