Well, except her rear isn't too appealing either, kinda Camaro-esque, and with no boobs, well, there's just no interest

I disagree. It's NOT perfect. It should have 43 on the side instead of 44!

Oops
The 44 is for you, Mike. I would need 43. Sooo, since it's your car, the 44 is PERFECT for you!.

The designers spent 3 1/2 yrs doing this Vette...they never understood the concept Less is More. Where r all the old designers from Fisher Body. Bring them out of retirement.

Ahh, yes! Body by Fisher! The GM cars would have that plate on them. When did that stop?

The profile from the door back sort of echoes the Solstice coupe. Can't say I'm sold on the design but my stepson was the lead aerodynamics engineer on the project. Did you check out the air flow system?

According to wikipedia:

Fisher Body is an automobile coachbuilder founded by the Fisher brothers in 1908 in Detroit, Michigan; it is now an operating division of General Motors Company. The name was well known to the public, as General Motors vehicles displayed a "Body by Fisher" emblem on their door sill plates until the mid-1990s.

I want to see it in person. And drive one. Not sold on the resurrection of the digital dash, but I like the lines, for the same reason I prefer the Sky to the Sol. And 600+ ponies under the hood with a exhaust cutout V8? I do miss the rumble. But I don't miss car payments...
