I like it, even though I've never been a fan of the '69s, and this seems to borrow heavily from that particular model.

OTOH, with GM's track record, if and when this is released, it will be loaded with non-performance options and cost over 50k.

In typical gm fashion, build a car everyone wants and price it so the only people that can afford it are the guys who buy cadillacs. I guess time will tell

Love it, maybe they missed on the grill a bit though. This is exactly what they needed to do. If they over price it though... It'll be a huge flop.

I like it

Like any other new car, I can only enjoy it in pictures. I knew they would have to come up with something to compete with the Mustang.

I like it, just took a long look at it.
At least itīs got a nose on it, not like the last gen Camaros,
aerodynamics killed the look.The coke bottle styling has always been good, gives the body line time to develop as it goes from front to rear.
Maybe thereīll be room to work on the motor.

I never have really cared for the looks of any of the concept cars untill this. I like it! I think they did a good job with it!

I can't afford it either

This car looks cool, but I agree with everyone else about the possible pricing. The concept Challenger really hits the mark, looks just like the '71 I had.

re: New Concept Camaro

Based on the pic's I've seen, it has a "New Caddy" look about it which I don't like. But then look at my age...lol. Maybe I'll like it better when I see one on the road or at a dealer. We have a '99 ssz28 and like that body style alot. I'm sure the new Camaro's will drive even better than the last batch.

I liked the looks of the new T'Bird when the pic's first came out, but when I checked one out at a dealer, I lost interest. I really like the new Mustangs and want to see a new Cobra up close.

I want there to be a new Camaro, but overall, I don't really like this design. I think the front is too pointed and grill to chunky. The tail lights are very pretty, although the rear looks a little vette-like. To me it looks like a "cartoonization" of '69.
