The 93-97 were ok, the 98+ are pretty awful. The LS1 was a game changer though. Thank God for the 98+ Trans Ams.

Very first inpression.... OH MY GOD, WHAT THE F**K DID THEY DO AND WHY?!!!!!!! After reading a few pages of comments and coming back to it, I'm kinda on the "Meh" side now. Im definitely a MUCH BIGGER fan of the '16-'18 appearance. I think I can eventually get used to the front. Again though, why would you want your Silverado and Camaro to look identical? I like it on the Silverado, not so much here. The tail lights I cant do. The current ones are much better.

On pure looks, I would take an LS1 4th gen over this. Itís like they slapped a Charger front fascia with BMW lower grille on and called it good.

Paint the black bumper body color and move the bowtie to the upper grill and it looks pretty darn good. Rendering someone did in the other thread.

I think by GM moving the bowtie to the top grill, will change a lot of minds around here. If not, black out the flowtie with some vynil or paint and move it along.

Overall, I love the car!

So the 93-97 models were 'OK"? But one of the best looking models(98-02) were awful?

New refresh is horrible, the front end of that car looks like some kind of kia or hyundai. Today is truly a sad day.

I'm seeing so many posts on FB that, "I'm glad I kept my '17 Camaro" or the like and I remember this being said when the 6th gen first came out. I liked when all the 5th and 6th gen cars came out, and I like this one. I like that more options are available, especially for the turbo with the 1LE. Give it time and I'm sure it will be okay. The fact that the performance of all the gens have been hard to beat, by either Ford or Dodge, makes it appealing to me. We'll see what happens when for trim levels come out.

I believe that these are still pre-production models and with comments about the emblem and other small items, they will change it up. And like you said, black it out and move along.

Can anyone black out the flowtie via Photoshop to see how it would look?

I donít think they will change it. They didnít change the badge location with the original 6th gen.
