Ain't no half-steppin' when I roll.
That's good for you, I applaud your pursuit of perfection, it is very noble and most ambitious of you I was simply pointing out that, although you may not hold your personal beliefs this way, one is capable of liking something without it being perfect in their eyes, as you had said the OP doesn't actually like it just because they want to change it.

I was QUESTIONING whether or not he really liked it. Questioning...

However, I love the performance of the car and that's why I haven't MODIFIED the engine. So using your logic, what I have done makes sense. What's YOUR excuse? You claim you love the ass end but you want to change yours. Maybe you don't know what you want.

Ok, so you love the C5(must be your fav car, cuz you don't settle, "Ain't no half-steppin' when YOU roll" ) but yet, you don't like the stock front fascia... so you change it.

You dislike the C7 because of the stock rear fascia (resembling the Camaro) So by your logic you can just change it(as you did with your previously ugly C5) and you'll actually like the C7? So do you like it or not like it... I'm confused.

And yes, I love the C7. Does that mean that I think the rear is perfect? No f'n way. Do I think any car is perfect? No f'n way. Is there something I'd change on every car? No doubt.

I seriously could never, ever design my perfect car. It would simply be impossible. Why? There are just too many different things I enjoy to ever fit everything I like in one vehicle. Same reason you'll see me with a blonde one week and perhaps a brunette the other... I can find completely different things equally attractive.


Anyways, this isn't going to get us anywhere... I just had to call you out for being so vocal on not liking the C7's rear and then admitting that you don't like the stock C5's(your perfect car) front. Lord knows you're no stranger to calling out bullshit.


(Oh, and if the C5 is your perfect car (and it must be because as you said "I don't settle") then boy do I wish I had your standards... Life would be cake)

It comes with age and maturity. One day when you get there, you'll figure out that you really don't need a different woman every week, just one who can make you experience many different women all in one.

Getting back on topic, the C7 rear, if you can photoshop in a more creative round taillight than the standard LED dots that are all the rage today. In my CTS, they used light pipes, so put in some light pipes ( round, with some more pizzaz ) and i think you will have arrived at a nice product.
I also love the fact that you put "Stingray" on that back facia... that way everyone will know what it is...

And although you can't photoshop it in.... the lights/turn signal should put on a light show... just look at a new mustang, i'm not saying to copy it... but mind that it is cool to watch..... it's gotta be cool.
