Post 2015 Chevrolet Camaro
I rented one for a week while on vacation. What an abortion of a car. I was reminded what a real car is like when I got back to my Lincoln last night.

Cripes... I really have nothing good to say about it. I could specifically list the things I disliked, but that would be a list of every single design element. Fisher Price junk.

The windshield wiper stalk was alright.

I think they look cool but have no desire to drive or own one :shrug:

The thing had less than 3,000 miles on it and it was already a rattle trap. Buzzing from air vents, whistling from window seams, creaking like an RV over speed bumps... it's fat, you can't see out of it... I could go on and on. Sure it's a rental, but you don't/can't drive a car hard on Kauai. You never get above 60, there are 8 stoplights. Every time I got into that thing it pissed me off in some new way.

Did you run over any Moas? :D

Kauai was one of my most favorite vacations

Just shutting the door on one tells you its a cheaply made car... fisher price is an excellent analogy... there is no resounding "thud" as opposed to a 4th gen Camaro. And yeah the "pillbox" view has probably contributed to a lot of wrecks.

The new Vette is no joke at all.

The new Camaro, sadly, is simply a joke.

Yes... Poking around the Chevy showroom recently a blacked out ZR1 drew my attention. Unfortunately I didn't have a spare 80G in my pocket. There was a fly yellow ZO6 alongside with a sold sticker on it... maybe Floyd just paid them a visit. :rolleye:

So what color is the new Vette?

Makes a big difference IMHO.

So you DID get one!!! Good on you!

#1 for me is Black, followed closely by shark gray.
Like to see the sunset metallic orange and maybe the yellow.

Now I hope you didnt get black wheels :hand: :naughty: :pray:

Black was the only color for the 2002 Trans Am also as all others made the gray T Tops not blend in. My 93 was a coupe, only year available without TTops so no problem with red.
Same with the Vette with all its angles and black/dark trim pieces on all colors, needs to be a dark color.

I almost ordered shark gray because I loved Cyber Gray in the C6's. However, it is a flatter color. Honestly it looks like primer from a distance.
I really like white, but to your point, a lot of the details were lost in a solid white car.
I do have black wheels. I wasn't a fan at first and planned on changing them but they have grown on me. I may change them when the tires are ready to be replaced. It has red calipers which helps a bit to offset the color.

Never noticed that but next time I see a shark gray Ill check it out from a distance. Im sure you are right though.

Im sure the wheels look good with the red calipers. Still not a fan but it would be a dull world if we all liked the same thing. I like my chrome wheels on black but then again Im stuck in the 60s. :green:

Pics when you have time would be nice.

Thats what Im talkin' about!

Black and everything matches but the wheels are still too much for Moi. I do like the red calipers though.

Enjoy that ride.
