    The good: It's called a Stingray.
    The bad: Most everything else. Especially the Camaro back end.

    God bless the Kentucky folks who'll build them, but I'll never ever buy another Gummint Motors car.

    You don't like companies that promptly pay off their loans?

    All of these new cars look like plastic ass. The new Cadillac XTS costs $50,000 and looks no different from the outside than the big Hyundai.

    He'd defect to Russia if he thought it would make Obama look bad.

    Looks like a cross between a Camero and a Pontiac Solstice.

    Front looks like a Ferrari 599 and SRT Viper mated. Side and hood have way too many vents and scoops. Rear looks like a deformed Camaro. And no wraparound rear window, a staple since 1978? Ugh.
    I do like the front, it's just not original looking. But it seems to have more attitude than the current C6, which I find bland in the front.
    Interior looks much nicer.

    The front end is an oversized Lotus Elise.

    The back end is a butt-ugly wad of plastic straight from the muscle cars of an era Detroit would like to forget.

    I don't understand the Camaro styling of the rear taillights ... shoot, the entire rear end. And why what appears to be four exhaust ports. Two is one too many, much less four.

    The windows behind the B-pillars make little sense. They don't exactly cut down on the blind spots and they make the vehicle appear to be something from a Honda Accord coupe or Z (and no ... not a Camaro Z28 ... ).

    Not getting the front lower grille, either, unless the engine suddenly needs more air. One would think that this was the purpose of the duct built into the hood.

    Could take some serious time to get accustomed to this one ...
