I saw this one yesterday, and although Jay was taking it up, that enthusiasm that he has for other cars seemed missing.
I don't know if you picked up on it, but on another forum there has been a lot of heated (being nice) discussion on the C7, and I am not talking about the rear end. But some say that GM went over to the dark side and are trying to go European and there new target audience is the younger generation or what many call Generation X.
Well Ed Welburn comes out and says both, that they were looking to go European and that the are trying to attract the younger generation. Well I hope it works for them. Or they may be looking at a lot of unsold C7.

I'm still not into the whole rear. Looks too Camaro-ish to me.

LOVE the interior though! Gorgeous!

Weirdly, I think the end of this video sold me on the rear end. Looks amazing.

The nose looks like an 02 Camaro and the tail lights look like 2010 Camaro. I think it will grow on me. I'm not sure what the chrome emblems say on the fenders but it looks kinda south of the border. Interior looks nice. I like the hood and side profile. It certainly has a Ferrari feel in red. It will be interesting to see the Z06 and Zl1 versions.
