Forward into the past. The 70's louvered hatch back returns. Since I am from that time, there is a part of me that likes it. Need to think about it a little. Then again I might have forgotten to take my Meds this morning.

Since you asked, I think that's one of the most hideous things I've ever seen done to a C7.

If one was looking for a way to further reduce side/rear visibility that would be trick.

I guess it could be worse looking but I don't have the skill to draw it.

The market for this will be very very small, possibly even less so than C7 lambo door conversion kits.

I might have a nightmare about seeing that. Can't un-see something that horrible.

And round tail light conversion kits for the C7.

However, if you combined the fugly louvers, round tail lights and lambo doors together on a C7, along with lots of chrome, you might have something.
