I think we all are sharing the same sentiment. Except for minor styling carry over (69 side fake side louvers, console mounted gages, 68 "looking" instrument cluster), not much else reminds me of the 1st gen. In my mind, the front end is the weak link. Back end is a much more pleasing design (to me).
Problem is that those that brought us the tri 5 chevys, 1st gen Camaros, etc are long gone, and a different breed of designer is behind the wheel. Seems like they are trying to have their cake and eat it too by appealing both to those that grew up with 1st gen Camaros and the current youth market. They aren't the same.
It will be interesting to see if they can sell 100,000 Camaros / year. I personally believe that Chevy is off target much in the same way that Ford was with the revival of the Thunderbird. It was too new and not enought old. They learned and took that learning to the Mustang. Ford has the right idea with the Mustang. Update it, but definitely have it carry the look of the late '60's.
