I'll probably get banned for saying this; but I like the refresh better than the current version. I think the cars in the pic below look really clean and more athletic looking. I really like the vented hood with the flat black stripes. At first, I didn't like the tail lights; but now I see they wrap around, I like them. There, I said it.

ANOTHER reason to join us at Camaro5Fest!
Scott, Sorry we missed going to the Fbodgathering and seeing you but our daughter was in town from California and we had not seen her for awhile. Since we are talking about your opinions, what are your feelings between the Recaro ZL1 seats and the standard ZL1 seats? I know the stock ZL1 seats are really good for an all day drive but not sure if the Recaros are more of a competition, short term seat?

Also, will you be bringing any 2014 Corvettes to Camaro Fest, my wife is looking for a new car? Take care.

They are over 2K for the pair to add plus they're heated and power adjusting just like a 2SS. They feel like a great big hug as I got to sit in the drivers seat of a '14 2SS 1LE today in Milford.

Those asses look good to me.

The white pops with the refreshed back end...and I think the AGM will look equally nice.

Is that the new Red Hot then? I would assume so since there should be only one red non-metallic.

Is it me or does the truck opening appear even smaller?

As mentioned prior, its hard to believe the amount of craziness over a piece of chrome trim. Jeez people, paint it body color, remove it, black it out...whatever. If you cant stomach modifying one piece of trim on your car, you might need a different ride.

I am more interested in the new not-so-easy-or-cheap-to-modify items, like what color are the new regular headlights/driving/fogs. Hopefully GM has dropped the yellow tones.

Ultimately, I probably still won't be upgrading until C6, unless a good medium blue (Kinetic/Nassau/Jetstream) makes a appearance. (Outside of Hotwheels)

It's a little mind-boggling how much better the VF Commodore SS-V looks than our SS. The black plastic trim in the grilles needs to be the same glossy black as the SS-V, the standard wheels are pretty bad, and the VF exterior paint options are way better.

At the Hot Rod Power Tour in Arlington, Texas. Not a fan of the chrome strip on the RS and I thought I would maybe like the taillights in person, but I don't.

I want hood spears and devil tail side stripes, gill stripes and lower body stripes. Yep, I know. That's over the top, but that's me. Incidentally, if I get Red Hot the only thing about the stripes that will change is that they will be black. I have to save my decision until I see the Red Hot in person though. Let me know how you like yours. I'm sure you'll have it before me--unless a few grand just happens to land on my front door step.

I would wait for to see the Red Hot. Had a red car (mustang) before but kept getting eyed by the cops.

I had originally wanted to wait for the 2014's to be released before I got my new camaro, but I don't think that I am patient enough. Any idea on when the 2014s are going to start being sold? If not soon enough, I will just get 2013, because either way, I will be happy!
