I loved the concept car and what Hollywood did with it. However, I really think these lines are too rounded, hood is too short and the overall "Oh my god, look at that!" is missing from the production model.
I gotta disagree with you. I think the production car looks almost identical to the concept. If you took the 22 inch wheels that were on the concept and put them on the production car, I don't think you'd be able to tell them apart.

GM did a great job. Compare it to the concept Mustang a couple years ago for the current 05 Stang GT. The concept looked pretty good. The production version looked a lot different, and a lot cheaper. Chevy did a great job of not letting this happen with the Camaro.

I thought the same thing. It has to be the position of the camera and the perspective angle.

The Camaro does look much meaner than the 'Vette though.

That image is almost like a younger sibling trying to out do an older one in agressiveness (which the Camaro does do).

it should be noted that Scott isn't the only one that's pictured driving the SS... seems like a "little weasel" got himself into those pics somehow

Wasn't this exact same response in another thread? It certainly doesn't seem to pertain to this one all that much...

my only question is: is that car sporting 19"f, 20"r wheels and tires? because they sure do look like they're staggered.

Take a look at the last page of the salesperson reference guide. Take a good close look at the picture on the bottom of that last page. What exactly do you see there that makes you say there is such a dramatic difference between the production model and the concept model that would draw such a comment. Where are these rounded lines you refer to that did not exist on the concept. Keep in mind that what you are looking at in that picture is the production right next to the concept.

And you had to say it twice? Once is more than sufficient.

Is there any question why everyone gets tired of hearing how the few that don't like the SS bumper are against it?

I'll give them one thing, the squeaky wheel gets the grease (or however that goes). It's always the vocal minority that gets their way in most everything because they make the most noise. It's the same everywhere, especially politics... LOL

They need to save something special for those of us that are spending so much money to go.
