With a profile that harkens back to the 1967 original, the all-new sixth-generation Camaro looks pleasingly familiar, marking a subtle styling evolution over the previous model. But don't let that fool you. The new Camaro is a delight to drive, with dynamic prowess that can give even snooty European sportsters a run for their money. But as a daily driver, you might want to think twice because outward visibility is atrocious.

It took 2 weeks and a Bose stereo tech to figure out that it had the wrong speaker installed. Turned out to be a speaker from a convertible. Mine was built the same week that the convertible builds began"
