Default The new C7 Cormaro

Talk about no imagination, they have been trying to get the rear end right for years, looks like they just gave up and put a Camaro rear end on it.

I'll buy a new one the year they get it right but I ain't holding my breath

I could say something here, but I'll just point to the quote under your avatar and leave it at that.

So if you haven't bought a Corvette since 1980, GM probably isn't worried you won't buy one anyway.

And that means he knows what he is talking about darlin. He needs a Corvette not a GM version of Speed Racers Mach 5

I suppose I might as well go guess how many LED lights make a headlight?

At least it is something different for a change

I think he means he doesn't like the concept of the new Vette that he's seen so far. What part about that statement is so hard for certain people to understand?

What part do you not understand?

Maybe someone who has been around this section for awhile can start a "complaint department" thread starting with a picture of a hand grenade next to a sign that says "pull pin and someone will be with you shortly".

I guess I am the only one that thinks the rear looks similar to the Camaro rear end.

Everyone understands. It is just that there have been endless threads on this. He was very rude to start a new one instead of one of the many others. Except of course, one of the threads that have been locked because there have been SO MANY threads on this topic.

No, just the last one to say so.

Ok...that made about as little sense as one could make.

Welcome to C7 discussion
Thanks you that was very nice, and I apologize if it's been brought up before, just can't understand why they can't come up with something unique.

I agree with you on that; there's been a bunch of those threads.
I'm not a fan of the C7 "renderings" myself either but it's seems that it's only ok to state approval as opposed to disapproval.
I will say that I'm holding off final judgment until the reveal but as the way it stands now, I'm not overly excited. The Camaro thing....I've asked non so called car guys/girls what they thought about the pics and I've heard "Camaro" 90% of the time.
