No one has done it that I know of. Going from a high tech all LED unit to bulbs seems to be a step backward, IMHO.

I guess there are still some that want the almost round look of previous generations.

lmgtfy didn't work for that. I'm guessing nobody makes any for the C7.

Well, I like retro. How about an 8-track player and one of those "floating" compasses that stick to the dash?

While I've gotten over it and really like the new tail lights, you guys are being cruel. Do you all forget the great debates in 2013 / 2014 about the camaro tail lights? I can see the appeal of continuing with tradition of (a modernized version of) the shape that has been around for 60 years.

I think the dual round tail lights started in 1961 or 1962, not 1953

Despite some replies here, I can empathize with your question. Personally, I like the look of some of the googled examples... a lot. So, go for it!

Btw, if spelling and such were indications of trolling we'd have some long-time, numerous post trolls.

I think after 6 MYs, the round taillight debate has lost its steam, however, it’ll be interesting to see if they make their triumphant return for the C8.

Edit: pic #2 ^^^ looks pretty good...

Anyone who's still complaining about this needs to realize that the C7's design departures from previous Corvettes helped it GAIN more buyers then it lost.
