Unfortunately, the distinction from any other car on the road is what attracted us to our 2010 model, but the picture that started this thread looks so much like (dare I say it?) a FORD Mustang, that it is no longer an iconic, keynote design. The gills are gone, the greenhouse has regressed to a fastback shape and the nose is heading towards the sharper, Mustang point in the middle. It seems like the stories of the adoring public for the newest Camaro will become far and few between, like this example from my wife. She said she was at a traffic light about a year ago and a 20-something girl pointed at the Camaro and made a heart-shape with her hands and pantomimed that she loved the car. This was not a unique situation, in that we still receive comments from people when we arrive somewhere, be it for fuel or shopping. Many of these comments are about the aggressive styling, with several stating that they prefer the original body style over the latest offerings.
As a note, we have 95 thousand miles on Draak, and we take the utmost care of him in all ways. We were planning to buy a new Camaro and sell Draak to our daughter, but after the direction GM has gone in design, we decided to hold onto the 2010 and keep it running as long as we can, rather than wait for the 50th anniversary edition to come out.
Sorry GM, but the Camaro is just changing into something that doesn't allow it to visually stand out from the crowd any more.
Author's Note: Please realize that opinions are simply that, the thoughts of the individual, so the assumption that the opinion above is made for all Camaro owners would be incorrect. This opinion is simply lamenting the direction the GM stylists are heading, which seems to be towards making the vehicle look more generic.
