IMO, i think they should have put the white "ss" on the grill just like the '69, instead of the bowtie.

Love the car, but I really can't stand the full length stripes. Mabe they will grow on me, but I doubt it.

I don't like the little spec of strips at the top of the window. That's a major fail for me.
Other than that, I like it a lot.

It's not like the "full-length" stripes are going to be on the soft-top, so what's the big deal? I like it.

I'm trying to convince my dad to buy one so we can cruise around in our Camaro's. Now, if we could just get the CTS for my mom, all would be right in the world

I just saw this car in person. It is stunning. I would expect it to go for big money tomorrow. What a great way to benefit charity while giving all car guys something special to see.

Well done GM / Chevy - this is class all the way.

The shark fin is gone,replaced with the antenna in the spoiler.
With help from the ham radio group they moved the antenna
and from what I read this is where it's going to be from now on!
Too the people with shark antenna's don't paint them unless
your paint does not have metal flakes in the paint as this will
shorten the range of your antenna.

The antenna in the spoiler is ONLY for the AM/FM radio because the antenna for the AM/FM radio in the coupes is embedded in the back glass, which the convertible obviously won't have

The convertible still needs to have the shark fin for OnStar and XM Satellite Radio

Very nice! The fog lights are too white to be stock. I sure don't like the looks of the yellow stock lights glad they put LED's in this one cause it would have looked mismatched in the pic if not.

I put on an IOM painted antenna from Rodgers Chevy, no issues with reception and a perfect color/metallic match.

I had to sit through a boring B-J auction and watch people grossly overpay for cars just to hear something we all already knew about. Sure, its nice, but no news there. The announcement was made days ago, and its not even that different a paint job from last year. C'mon Chevy, don't promise a big announcement and then regurgitate old news.

I like it. Why not complete the look and swap the bowtie to the SS logo? Details, details...
