Way overdone, sir. Not enough sculpture to it. It looks like a Miata and 4th Gen had a baby without headlights.

Sorry but I'm not into it at all. Looks like a whale shark.

1st gen is where it's at... it was all downhill form there except

for performance. Styling, class, longevity, marketability &

practicality all went down the crapper regardless of how many

1997 Mustangs the 4th gen. Could eat up and spit out.

The styling of the 4th gen. is and will be a one time deal. It's

on to greater and greener pastures now.

Well it was just my Opinion,...I liked the last camaro design alot and thought a new one should keep going from there to a more futuristic look instead of going back in time. I loved the 60's camaro too, but find the concept car a bit to thick in that style for a 21st century car.

Not that it isn't the right car for the times, I think it for sure is, just that I find most of todays designs are based off old dsesigns and there is no real "original" design going on in the product offerings today.

The reverse is true too tho, as some cars could have benefited from the use of older design elements (ie Charger), again JMO.

Thx for the comments, as always.....top notch !

I'm NOT chang'in this one tho !...lol. :pbjtime:

Actually the wheels are right it's the wraparound glass that gives a bent perspective look to it and the rear wheel housing from this angle....oh well.

You'd have to understand the thinking behind the design,

it's supposed to pay tribute to the classic Chevy powered

Chaparrals of the 1960s & the CanAm era.

JEEZ...that is the BEST lookin Mitsu I have ever seen !!!

68, THANKS SO MUCH for the Chap pixs, my ALL TIME favorite racing cars of the world, Jim Hall was a MONSTER, and those cars were demons on the track, plus they just looked the LOOK, man. Thanks. Check out the mclaren racer I just put up, you may remenber that one too, as it was in the same era as the chap's...200 mph plus in the late 60's, and these guys were just starting to understand ground effects, but Jim Hall knew exactly what he was doing !!!

that is the "Vacum Cleaner car"....one of the fastest cars EVER made !...it was so fast it won every race it was entered in unless it broke down, and was eventually outlawed because it was so fast no body could catch it !...it was doing 225 mph in the late 60's, those fans sucked the air out from under the car and glued it to the road !!!!...and with a 454 injected blown MF enigne it was unbeatable.
