Changes on no changes- just Thank-you for bringing the Camaro back 4 years ago- it could have been gone forever- severely limiting the choices for performance cars. I think everyone just be greatful that Chevrolet brought it back! I know I am!

Great input Scott. I love how you took past concerns, addressed them, and showed how you met the customers requests/needs. Well done.

I was one of the 547 that voted Liked.

When I first joined C5 I was naive to think there was love for all Camaros. My first post stating thank you GM / Chevrolet for making a 300+ HP V6. Then people would call the v6 a girls car. If you the owner didn't like this and made a comment back it was somehow contorted into you have thin skin. I don't know to many people that would like comments that are not constructive. My family taught me if you don't have something constructive to say why state it at all. In our new world consequences for what one writes on the internet isn't there. So as far as the comments go please weed out the bad and listen to the constructive!

Thank you for the 2014 line up!!!!

Camaro2lt posted that the z/28 has a exposed carbon fiber extractor, I wonder if the one on the SS is painted CF and not cheap plastic like people have posted.

All I want to say is you can't/will never please everyone, no matter how hard you try. There will always be haters and pot-stirrers, but rest assured, the the efforts of "Team Camaro" and "Team Corvette" are greatly appreciated by thousands of automotive enthusiasts around the world. As the owner of both a Camaro and Vette, I personally love all that has been done to the '14 Camaro and C7 Stingray. Looking at the various coments on YouTube and other automotive sites and blogs, all I can do is laugh! If you don't have hatters, you're not doing something right! So Scott, keep your head up, know that your team is doing a banging job!!!

This looks a billion times better than how it initially looked in the blurry pics. At first it looked like plastic. I think this will look really good.

You certainly can't please everybody. But the decision to please Honda Prelude owners by bringing back their mid-90's rear end? There's simply no way to explain that away.

i think this is a great opportunity for the aftermarket to kick in. take those tail lights out and install a new assembly. obviously the overall shape wouldn't change, but that's not really the problem i don't think. the new lights could have some depth or character--sawtooth like a '69, or at least individual lights like the new stingray. there's a ton of room for improvement on those tail lights to add some depth and character, and bring it back to a muscular look.

Sad thing is, these are the same guys who only days ago wanted to lynch the tail light designers.

I still say that most of the changes are good but the tail lights ruin it. I don't know of anyone that had a problem with the other lights. That is one of the problems with designers they can never leave well enough alone.
OK - we'll start all over again and give you everything you want.....and as to the rest of the enthusiasts...well, to heck with them.

I don't mean to be brusque - but it appears that you really don't care what I say -- you evidently don't care about the explanation - and you don't seem to care what anyone else says. If YOU don't like what we've done, we're wrong....and if someone says they like it - well then, they're just "kissing butt" -- which, if I was one of the people who said "I like it!" - I'd be very much offended by your 'kissing butt" remark.

Perhaps you really need to look at the bigger picture and realize that AS I SAID SEVERAL TIMES over the past week - no matter what we do, we'll not make everyone happy.

I'm sorry you don't like the new car. Perhaps you will in 6 months. If you don't -- well - I don't know that there's anything we can do about it.
