Interesting 2011 1st gen throwback...

While perusing eBay, I came across this 2011 2SS, and since I hadn't seen it posted here before, I thought I'd share it. Sorry if it's a repost!
One pic:

Rear end:


The rest of the pictures can be found on the auction page.

Thoughts:
I'm on the fence about it. I like the idea, and the working headlight covers are definitely cool, but it still feels a little lackluster. The fascia seems off, and, IMO, the rest of the car feels a little ignored. Mostly the rear, really. I wouldn't have minded seeing tail lenses reminiscent of the '69 Camaro.

Those look like Walmart hub cap versions of rally wheels. the head lights are cool ,but that's where it ends for me. I would rather the the current car the way it is or a real 69.

Can someone tell what the two round things are on each side of the reverse lights. I've seen them on some of Gen 5's and others that don't have them.

The spoiler isn't any worse than a lot of the current aftermarket offerings. In fact, it's actually pretty nice. The front end, not so much. I do like the wheels, though.

I don't think it looks good to make a 5th Gen looking like a 1st Gen. The 1st Gen look was for that era, and that's how I would keep it. Love the 1st Gens!! I wish I could own one as well!
