We've seen pics comparing the rear tail lights of the C7 to late model fighter aircraft (F22 and F35). How about the front of the Vette? Something I noticed is the grill of the C7 and the 55 Chevy. Any likeness here? Did the design engineers go back in time and model the C7 grill after the 55? Retro you think or is it just a 'momentary lapse of reasoning' on my part? (55 picture credit from the California Car Cover Company Fall 2014 issue)

I think your over thinking it. I don't think there was too much retro thinking going on with this car, heritage yes.

I think you're stretching it a bit there.

My favorite look is the C3 heritage coming thru with the peaked front fenders, pointed nose & raised hood.....all which was lost on the C4,5,6.

While 'art' is certainly in each individual's interpretation, I don't see it at all.

Haha! Be careful with heavy machinery and lawn tractors after adjusting the meds. If you can't remember having two twin trees in the yard, but thought you only had one, don't try to mow between them. ;)
