First off, my hats off to GM for taking some styling risks and personally I don't mind the tail lights. But from what I have been reading, over and over and over............ It's no secret that a lot of Corvette fans think the C7's back end is Monkey butt ugly.
Could the non-round tail lights become a one year only C7?
As far as the split windowed '63, I think beside the public complaints, Zora had something to do with the change also. He made it real clear during the design phase that he did not like the split window.
Now as for the new tail lights, I don't foresee GM doing a redesign on the lights, as I am not sure how the round traditional lights will work with teh rear venting, but maybe the rear diffuser. I think that (at least for me) it needs some work and it maybe as easy as having it painted to match the body with just a small amount of the area in black.
