Sorry but I am having the biggest problem warming up to the C5. It looks...well, sooo Japanese! It has an RX-7 nose and a Mitsubishi Eclipse butt. Could you bring back the 68-73 Kamm effect rear end with bigger flares? How about a more unique nose?
In the power department, there are a number of cars that can run with, or beat a Corvette. Yet, there is no high performance option. There's no "Stingray"!
Why not build a limited big block run? Go ahead and charge a premium. If you make it, they will come...C5 fans are foaming at the mouth because they don't have the performance of the big block Viper. Why?
Is GM willing to take a back seat in performance with the C5? How come they make less expensive riceburners that are faster?

I like the Stingray idea. Did you see the posts about a retro version? That could be a cool car.

You're right about the C-5 styling. I end up waving to more *** cars! Let's see something fresh like the Mustang's sucessful retro look - so old, it was new!
