Does anybody else not like the new tails?

Does anybody else agree that it looks too muhc like a vette? I know that this has been covered before but I hope they improve the rear. Now, using paint, i decided to come up with something better... wish they could make it into this shape....
I wish they would ahve gone more retro with the tails making it look towards the 69s... now mine arent in the shape necessarily of a 69 but i want something close but more modern and sophisticated... now if someone has phtoshop and could improve of what i did that would be awesome

Yours seem really nice, if we could see them in red color maybee that would be the clincher...

^^ Thanks bud.... I know I want to se it more realistically with those taillights iI just used paint to see an idea... if only I had photoshop it would be brilliant. But... that is a good idea for blackouts

What if they were straight across just like in the pshop job there but without the silver bars on top, those might be modern/retro at the same time and keep it looking different from the corvette.

The concept rear is the only thing that I am less than pleased with. I do hope they change the tail lights (not to Euro clears with red bulbs either). I want something like the '69 too.
I can't see the shopped pics above? Can anyone help out with that?

yeah the baack end looks like the vettes because the guy who designed the rear end is the same guy who designed the vettes rear end. i like how they look on the concept though.i love the short back end and how the fenders are so wide. the lights just fit right in it. it looks good

this artwork is beautiful.

They both look good but I'll take the concept's rounded tail lights. Remember the 70 to 73 Camaros tail lights or the 71 to 73 Chevelles tail lights? I can see the Aftermarket industry exploding over the Camaro.

Loved the pshop jobs that were done, but it seems like chevy is going to stay pure to the concept design, so the design is basicly set in stone at this point!

actually my favorite camaros were the ones with vette-like lights. 70-73. when i saw these on the concept i thought they looked great.

im just wondering whan the production car will do about back-up lamps. i hope they dont just slap them on the bumper as an afterthought.
