So now that we've finally seen the official debut of the C7, what do you think?

All I can say is, WOW! It started to look pretty good in the illustrations, but now that I've seen it in in all it's glory, it's like 10 times better! GM did an excellent job with the C7.

So to all you who did not like the new look, but watched the live stream, what do you think now?

It's very different than we've become accustomed to with the previous generations, but I like it.

I think it's a great shot of fresh design and thought to the brand. It looks very modern and angry....

"New" is good. Can't wait to see in person. A few things need to be changed and I'm sure they are being drawn up right now... Front grill coming around the nose just a bit more would have been nice.

I think the rear would be 10x better if it were a solid color. My mind is blown by everything that is new for the C7

Sat and watched like a kid watching cartoons on Saturday morning. Parts of it may take a bit of getting used to, but on the whole? Pretty Bad Azz!

I think they did a superb job all the way around....and looking at the preview front and back views, I knew they were going to reference the Stingray

IT's funny you say that, I remember a few years ago everyone was painting the bottom of their rear bumper black to break up the rear end some on C5/6's. I'll bet people start painting the rear "teardrops" in short order

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
