Shoot, I would never trade my C3 for one of these.  Now, if I had a gob of money I might buy one to add to a collection before I would buy a Mustang.LOL

No matter how hard the engineers try, they'll never improve the original C3. Those who can afford that car, probably won't appreciate it like we do ours. My .02 "T"

Looks like a GT-40, A Viper, and a Shark had a WILD night out on the town....
Some angles look really nice, others.....not so much.

It just looks like a customized C6, still having the problems I see with the C6.  Front and rear ends too short, rear end looks like it was chopped off with a cleaver.  No thanks, I would stay with my original C3.

Tuff Crowd.... hmmmmn.... I like it. If I had the dough I would put one in the garage a drive the gee wiz outta it.

Its supposed to be a retro car not a clone. So there should be a mix of old and new school tech involved.

And,,, its a Vette not a Vette/Rod so that makes it worth more in the end someday.

Besides look Mawww.... No Headlights..... Tuxblacray2009-02-12 08:54:00

I like it!  Although I would rather it was a chrome bumper version.  There are already companies doing retrofits of first and second generation style bodies on new chassis, so it is our turn.

OH WOW! Man, that is awesome. I really like it. Although I wouldn't give up my '72. I'd have to add this one, in red. And there is a C1 concept. And it looks awesome too.

I Like It. OK I'd never be able to buy one but I think it looks much better than most concepts. The top two pics look the best (silver w/no stripes).

I like this one much more than the Transformer Vette!  The idea of C3 looks (sorta) and C6 driveability is appealing.  The rear end is too much late model to suit me.  I'll take two . . . .
 
Check out Pro-Team's 1962s for sale.  There is a modern replica that is going for about $130K that really looks kool!  Maybe beter than the original C1 (certainly one of my gavorites).

I like the car style.  I agree I'm not into the kit thing but they may sell enough to make it worth their while.  I'm not all that craze about the C5 or C6 actually.  The actual cars are an improvement and really are great driving machine.

The Concept car looks great, but I am not in favor of it. History has created uniqness, thus recreating takes away from the pride of an era. Have we run out of ideas that we have to repeat history? The music world has run short of imagination and originality as they continually introduce old songs of 40 years ago that never meet the excitement of the orginal.

Hey Mick, I really like it!  BUT.....

2. 'twould be better if it was a production car and not a kit.
 
Thanks for posting that.

LOL NO THANKS, I like my BONNETT better. The mixture of several do-dads are not to my liken.  Wheels do not fit the era, shape is not right for the body, and I am partial to the original ones.
