    When it (EFIJY) was first ballyhooed.... promoted...
    I felt that it was a ripoff of the FAMOUS Y-Job.... and posted as much.

    I have personal issues with doing a ‘retro’ concept.
    Why? To what end?

    Many years ago I was commissioned to recreate the EFIGY, fortunately (I think), that project fell through.
    The GTR-X is very cool!

    Bit blunt, but is it only me who finds the new corvette looks like a crappy replica of a crappy replica of itself?

    2 of my neighbors work for GM and have been driving C8s all winter. Everytime I see them sitting in the driveways, they are looking better and better.

    Don’t know, something (or all) about it really hurts my eyes. Really liked the C7 too

    Gives me with a very “Hyundai” feel

    My initial impression is that it looks like what Lincoln says they are striving for.

    Looks too low to be a proper Lincoln. But that's just me.
    The form language looks very contemporary to me.

    It looks contemporary but also a bit too obvious. Maybe unrefined. Some areas are quite nice, like the top half of the front fender and into the hood. Subtle. The body side and rockers, not so much.
