No way you can call that identical. The 69 does not wrap around the corner. The look more like the late 70's lights with lenses to match the color scheme of the 69. But no way are they identical.

They may not be 100% identical because they wrap around the corner, but the general shape looks very similar and as the OP said - even the reverse light is in the same spot. Thanks for sharing the pic and pointing it out, OP!

The OP has a better better eye then you if you see Honda when you look at the back of the new camaro. I thinks he's spot on with his line of thinking.

I see inspiration from the 1st and 2nd gen. Growing on me each time I look at it, wish I had seen it in person.

No, i think you missed my point, I now associate the two, because of all the prelude references on this site...
