OM(bleep)G, the new camaro prototype is sex incarnate!

http://www.camaroz28.com/

Check it, experience it, love it...I think I have a candidate for my next car....and if it has the same engine options as the corvette, is the winner!

Kinda looks like a hybrid between a camaro and a mustang. Very cool.

I like the bulging fenders, reminds me of the '67... although that Chrysler egg-crate grill has to go... And they'd better get it into production and selling before GM goes belly-up....

Looks like the Mustang and the Magnum had a baby. Sorry, not doing it for me.

Magnum has that crapfest of a front grill, that looks like a dolphin had sex with a 1930s car....

This looks more like mustang meets camaro to me, with just a hint of chop-top goodness.

And I would rather they put hydraulic headlight covers on it, akin to the RS camaros of the late 60s.

Danno, I definitely think they were trying for the '67. Really messed up that front end, though. Makes it look hideous. They need to ditch the front and back and try again.

+1...The front end is really lousy. The rear looks okay, calls to mind the 67-69 cars. Is GM actually going to bring their pony cars back?

sorry, though i like the side profile, the grille area is fugly. little bit too much (new) Malibu and Impala.

i can see what they were going for, but wth does everything have to be retro nowdays? i actually liked the way the prior generation Camaro and Firebird looked - esp. the Ram Air 'birds. VW, BMW, Ford, Daimler-Chrysler, and now Chevrolet. can't anybody look to the freaking future? we're not going to see the past again, however much we might want to.

Dead on. Looks like chevy is trying to give chrysler a run for their money in the butt-ugly category.

The sins of Chrysler are spreading. I don't care how good any of these new ugly cars perform or last. Anybody who buys one is only encouraging the practice of hiring blind stylists.
