I didn't like the back end at first either but it's grown on me and now I love it. The rear is so wide it just looks like a beast in my opinion. RS tail lights are a shade darker. I think they look great on my CGM. And as far as shape, I think they look good.

The LED Taillights would make it look awesome as well.

Im just saying the body lines and every thing are based upon first gen. cars, i think the second gen/corvette design should be changed, like a aftermarket kit or something maybe?

The RS were supposed to be darker than non-RS. It was an "attempt" to mimic the "afterburners" look of the concept. NOW somebody offer those and then we got something to talk about.

Well you see guys, they didn't make this car based on the 69/first gen. cars. Sure there are quite a few similarities but they have stated this car was a NEW camaro, they wasn't doing a retro car, like dodge and ford has done. And I wasn't a huge fan of the back end either, but it is growing on me.

What they need to do is put a '69 body, and put it on the new chassis, BEST OF BOTH worlds!!!!!!!

What's wrong with vette? It's also got the DIC and the IRS that the C4 corvettes had.

You can do body work if you want to. But this car would not look or be the same without that dash of Corvette.

don't see it the 68 is two tail light assemblies and the 2010 is four like the vette.

I am just wanting to know what you guys think about it.
I think the one piece taillights are never going to come back. They look too "80's/90's".

I agree though I hate how they copied the vettes tail lights. 4 tail lights = Vette, imo.

But it still looks great.
