Bugly. Best thing they mentioned is " there’s zero intention to produce.”

Default two for the show

Ed Welburn is a big fan of retro and the historic landmark cars of GM. He particularly liked the original silver Bill Mitchell '59 Stingray racer, from day one on the job at GM. He was the one who directed that the car be restored. His own 1969 Camaro is only 10 years newer. Maybe Terry should donate a nice silver 1969 Corvette to Mr Welburn; it might help him focus more clearly. I would not write off the Corvette Centennial Concept entirely, just yet.
As for Mr Lutz and styling; well these days he spends more time arguing with politicians about fuel mileage standards than talking to Mr Welburn. Silver is also the classic Bill Mitchell show car color. Mr Welburn promises that the new Corvette, will amaze and obviously what excites him is retro-modern.

IMO The profile of the car is hot, but the rear clip The hood, the front clip needs redoing! They would need to design an invisible/hidden A pillar for that windshield design which would be cool.
