    Red, it was...ok...wasn't what I expected...had the hard top and bed cover on, sunroof open (it was 70 here Sat)...wished I had been in my truck so I could see inside, but I was in my Vette...
    the front is retro, but the rear fenders are swoopy/square sorta...It may be a design I need to see a bit more of in order to appreciate it...I guess I just wanted it to be more "truck" although I don't know how they would do that on Vette runnin' gear....at least it ain't like a fawkin' Prowler

    it needs running boards or something, the bottom of the door and all is higher than the fenders and you can see the frame like on all the other trucks, needs some type of filler panel. Oh btw dont know about around you but w/ dealer markup they are going for 60k+++++++++++ around here.

    Saw a blue one at the dealer in October when my wife and I bought our Mountaineer.
    Saw a black one in the Lowe's parking lot in early December.

    I think it looks pretty cool, and my wife does, too.

    I saw one in Lake Charles Louisiana in November. I think it was blue, sitting in a parking lot hanging out with a bunch of other local car guys.

    I don't like them either, saw the new Vettes in a new Chevy commercial not a fan of those either.

    I like the look of the new vette (at least on TV) we'll see how I feel when I go to check it out at the dealer down the road.

    I'm actually thinking about looking into a 4 door Colorado now, those look nice!

    Course most of the other new stuff looked like euro trash to me.

    The SSR is actually pretty cool, One of the dealers here in town has several and I got a chance to get in one in the showroom, I like it, but I'd like to get one out on the road to see what it can do.

    Those Colorados are nice. I had one for a test drive. The I5 works really good and the interior is comfy too. And the little beggar will wind up to 6500 before it shifts too!
