OK, I'm going to start off by saying this isn't a troll. Just my honest feelings.

This car looks great. I do not want it, though. It's basically a glorified kit car. Sure, someone took the time to put together a "kit" that looks and, presumably, functions well. But it is still a kit. To me, this is no different than a high quality Fauxrrari kit. This thing screams POSEUR to me. If I saw someone driving this on the road I would think, "That car looks good, but that guy is trying waaaaaay too hard."

Should Chevy do a retro-inspired 'Vette from the factory? Probably not. The aerodynamics probably wouldn't work out. So, I can kind of understand why there is a market for something like this. However, I'm not sold.

Especially at $75k. You can get a Z06 for that kind of money.
