I'm fairly sure I already know the answer most of you will give to this:
 
 
I would like to see a better shot taken from the rear of the car.  Aside from the auspicious pedigree of being owned by Belushi (wow, doesn't that copy look authentic), I'm interested to know what folks think.  I mean after all, they did upgrade to steering wheel from the '75 model to the Corvette/Vega one!!
 
I have to say that I actually kind of like the look of the rear window, and from the pictures, it at least looks like all of the body work was done well.  I don't think it's for me, but it is different.

Personally, I don't like anything about it ( except for the color ). The C3 lines are perfect already! I mean, I can go for ground effects, spoilers, and hoods but to me it looks like they were trying to turn it into a Buick! Those pointed fenders do NOTHING for me! I like my Vettes like they are. Just my 2 cents worth.

Looks like a Corvettillac - notice they don't give a head on or direct shot of the tail? Probably because they are the 2 most modified views and 2 worst features of the car...

Personally, I think it's quite hideous...Dead

Aw...common, guys...we've seen similar cars before. There was one last year(I think) that was tan/copper colored...it wasn't near a nice lookin as this one, tho.
I think there was a series of these turds built.
Belushi's car??? Idano...he did a LOT of coke, but I don't think he did THAT much! Perhaps he did own it at one time, before it was "modified"?

It's a big ol Thumbs Down for me...

Well, I gotta agree with most everyone else, just not my idea of a C3.  Thumbs Down  I don't mind a little discrete modification, but when it looks like that, it goes way too far.   Dead

Not my cup of tea.  Hope the boys at GM don't get any ideas for the C7.

Guys the name starts with "Mark"   I think it looks like a Lincoln Mark 3 design.  While the Mark was a decent looking car, this thing looks like it has tail fins on the front.
 
Do I like it?  Not really.  Wouldl I drive it? Yes just for the comments if nothing else.   Ugly can be entertaining.     I don't know that it's really ugly, just very very weird.  ( but so am I)

Yep it's different alright. Kinda Cadilacish. Don't think I would have the heart to do that to a vette.

Ouch Great gobs of gooie cotton candy bat man. The color looks sticky, and the design is outa this world. Lets leave it there.  NO Thanks, would not look good at the BBQ at Pauls next summer.  Someone give the guy a rasp and soften the lines on it.

When I was in the Submarine Service 45 years ago (yes I'm a qualified bubble head).  We had parties and every once in a while the unmarried guys would decide to make it into what was called Snake dances.  Some unmarried sailors would go out bring the "perfect!" women.  They also got lots of comments from other people in attendance. 

I think this vett would win at one of our Snake dances.  Looks like something a bubble head would bring to a dance for fun.
