I like the way it looks, but I think they should have spent a little more time on the vent in the hood... one of the things Ford did well with the 2013/2014 Mustang is that they made the vents in the hood less distracting and kept them linear with the body and painted them..

Like the front end alot, the back end not so much, the tail lights give that retro kinda look, and with the more futuristic front end it makes it kinda ehhhhhh. Still like my 2011 the most!!

Louvers (hood) should be punched up, not recessed in. When they were done on metal they went up. I am glad I got the '13 because the back end of the '24 would have me shopping.

The front and wheels looks good. Hate the hood and rear. Wish they would have just gone with the SLP hood and standard. Also wish they would have improved the cheap plastic interior. I know people are saying "it'll grow on you" but I think Chevy did take two steps back. 2010-2013 body design was such a perfect mesh of retro/new...

I never though about this. What if someone does pour alcohol? or some other flammable/dangerous liquid? I've seen many threads where jealous people damage nice cars.

Price

So I suppose whenever the new camaro comes out the 2013 will drop in price? Do you think it will be a considerable drop or just a little?

The 1LE will be the one to have.

Also the nose on the 2014 ZL1 will stay like the 2013's which should interesting in the showrooms.

I don't get the chrome bar across the nose. It looks out of place.

Don't like the now much taller and more pronounced rear lower black valance. GM seems to be getting carried away with this styling trend. It's a weak spot on the C7 too.

Can't say the C7 tail lights look like the Camaro anymore. I like the new style. Z/28 looks better than RS SS though.

I'm still waiting to see the 1LE

Nope, as soon as I seen that thing, I was thinking pine needles, leaves, sticks, etc. A collection of a big soppy mess of things. I never thought about bar scene fluids, but, yep, I am sure they would get in there as well. I see it getting clogged up and a pain to clean out. If I were to buy an SS, I would put a V6 hood on it.

Yes a V-6 hood would solve the hole in the hood SS problem...good idea....but cost and paint matching etc...wish the extractor was an option...whale tail is to much flash too...
