Does anybody else not like the new tails?
1 Attachment(s)
Does anybody else agree that it looks too muhc like a vette? I know that this has been covered before but I hope they improve the rear. Now, using paint, i decided to come up with something better... wish they could make it into this shape....
I wish they would ahve gone more retro with the tails making it look towards the 69s... now mine arent in the shape necessarily of a 69 but i want something close but more modern and sophisticated... now if someone has phtoshop and could improve of what i did that would be awesome

Yours seem really nice, if we could see them in red color maybee that would be the clincher...

montez34 06-23-2006 10:37 PM

^^ Thanks bud.... I know I want to se it more realistically with those taillights iI just used paint to see an idea... if only I had photoshop it would be brilliant. But... that is a good idea for blackouts

Here is a little red rendition for ya, hope you like it. Quick job.

levoncmo 06-24-2006 04:51 PM

to tell you the truth that makes me think of the old impal. I dont think it would match the camaro

MarkLS2 06-24-2006 08:34 PM

What if they were straight across just like in the pshop job there but without the silver bars on top, those might be modern/retro at the same time and keep it looking different from the corvette.

fyrfyt 06-24-2006 10:03 PM

like this.. or different

MarkLS2 06-24-2006 10:36 PM

WOw very smooth job!! I have to say, this design speaks more of a "camaro" to me then the current concept car :D

fyrfyt 06-24-2006 10:57 PM

yea after doing the 2nd rendition. It grew on me.

montez34 06-25-2006 11:16 AM

THAT is what I was dreaming for! hopefully the rear doesnt come out like the concept version!

I do like the second rendering in this thread though! Nice work :D

The concept rear is the only thing that I am less than pleased with. I do hope they change the tail lights (not to Euro clears with red bulbs either). I want something like the '69 too.
I can't see the shopped pics above? Can anyone help out with that?

That does look good, although I love the concept's rear end as it is :)

I don't know, I kinda like to one's on the concept best. :)

BlacLac02 07-19-2006 07:16 AM

yeah the baack end looks like the vettes because the guy who designed the rear end is the same guy who designed the vettes rear end. i like how they look on the concept though.i love the short back end and how the fenders are so wide. the lights just fit right in it. it looks good

impressive work on those photo shop pix. first time i've seen them and now i'm torn between the two. both look pretty cool.

this artwork is beautiful.
this makes the car look even more like the original car.

(i used to have a 69 firebird so i am a fan of the 60's camaro)

KILLER74Z28 08-09-2006 03:24 PM

They both look good but I'll take the concept's rounded tail lights. Remember the 70 to 73 Camaros tail lights or the 71 to 73 Chevelles tail lights? I can see the Aftermarket industry exploding over the Camaro.

MarkLS2 08-10-2006 06:43 PM

Loved the pshop jobs that were done, but it seems like chevy is going to stay pure to the concept design, so the design is basicly set in stone at this point!

1BADZL1 08-20-2006 04:54 PM

since that deck lid is large and smooth, I am thinking a TALL fin like found on some vipers...anyone else?

Iwantmycamaronow 08-21-2006 07:56 AM

actually my favorite camaros were the ones with vette-like lights. 70-73. when i saw these on the concept i thought they looked great.

im just wondering whan the production car will do about back-up lamps. i hope they dont just slap them on the bumper as an afterthought.
