It surpises me...
 
How much when I drive my car I have someone ask "Is that the new Camaro?". I mean..I am not an ass...and I try not to be smart...but this one is just so tempting.

I mean what else could it be? It's big, looks unmistakably like a Camaro and even says Camaro on the side.

Once I want to say..."Well it was new when I bought it back in 1969...".

This is just proof that Camaros are famous...even to those who know nothing about cool cars. Be proud.

it doesn't bother me at all when someone asks about my car.there are alot of people that don't know about it.i think they are just being friendly and want to ask about it.what seems like a dumb question to you,is not to the person that is asking it.

I don't mind being asked about the car at all...I will talk about it all day long. The whole "Is that the new Camaro?" thing is what sounds strange. I mean...I have never seen someone say "Is that a new Corvette?" or is "Is that a new Mustang?".

It's an easy ice breaker for someone who wants to talk to you about your car, but you obviously haven't met before.

What about this conversation minus "is that the new camaro"

Hey how are you? I noticed from over there that you look really good in those jeans boy...
Having said that did you get the LS3 or the L99?

I'm just joking with you!:) LOL I'd take it as a compliment!

jagan323 05-03-2010 11:37 PM

lol... i tend to think people only ask that because they want to ease into the conversation, whether they KNOW it is or not. Kinda like "is that a new hair cut?", "are those new shoes?" etc lol.

Its like people ask me IF it has the big engine? I have the "SS" emblem in the center of the grill and the rear, white stripes over orange and an axelback exhaust, I want to say. NO its a 4 cylinder. But I just say, YES, it has 448HP.

Gah! 05-04-2010 02:52 AM

least they arent asking "is that the new Mustang?"

PoorMansCamaro 05-04-2010 02:59 AM

well, to be fair, there hasn't been a new camaro for 7 or 8 years...

AlSuwaidi 05-04-2010 03:00 AM

they just want to break the ice to start a convo..

had someone ask "Is that your new black challenger out there?"..... wanted slap a #%@#.. i was nice though and corrected the poor woman.

nashstat 05-04-2010 03:05 AM

Never got that one... I have gotten "Nice car", "What a ride". "Is that thing fast?"... you get the point :-)

I had a lady *in* a Challenger ask me at a stop light "So how much do you love your new Challenger?"

Turns out, she works for the local Dodge dealership hahaha. I had to explain to her that I was in the Camaro :)
