Had a little fun with an SS today
 
We were on our way home and this SS is screaming but on the opposite side of the road and he cuts over and pops a u-turn. He gets right up next to us at the red light and revs his engine, he doesn't have a stock exhaust so me and my dad decided it'd be best for us to not rev our engine because it would have been shameful. (Luckily we are going to be putting in a new exhaust soon) but we were riding down the road for a while and he comes up behind us flying go's for a little bit and drops back, just having a good time. WE DID NOT RACE. Just putting thy out there. But it was our first experience in the new camaro so I had to post it. He also had the heritage grill too. And he didn't have stock exhaust at all. Sounded awesome! Anyways had to post about me and my dads first drive with somebody else! It was AWESOME looking forward to more ride with other camaro owners!

sounds like an awesome experience!

Gotta love it! Most of the time the other Camaros on the road are stock... at least around here anyways. Never had that experience most of the time the other Camaro drivers don't even look. :iono: They must not be C5 members cause everyone on here is awesome!

I wish the people I ran into mostly would be stock. LOL

There is a guy at work who also has a silver ice metallic rs and almost every day I see him out side I get, "C'mon man. When are you gonna do your exhaust" haha

I did get a thumbs up from a freaking awesome Corvette the other day. He had his thumb up to the window and was staring at my car as I drove by haha. I waved :D

You should have been around for that first year ('09-10). Back then EVERY other Camaro driver waved at you, and everyone stopped and stared at you. Now, I can hardly ever get a wave back, and the "awesome car" comments are fewer and fewer. But I'll always have that first year......

Here in Cali I still get stares and people pointing at my car on freeway. People started looking at my car more with the latest mods of carbon fiber lip and red candy apple calipers(G2 custom paint- best cheap mod by far). As for camaro owners, usually no v6 camaros even try to glance over. Mainly its the v8 owners that take a peek when I roll by.

v6 or v8 its all good man, as long as you have a camaro and you are happy with it!:biggrin:

I'm assuming that's because most of the V6's on the road are probably just your everyday people who wanted a sporty car & aren't really into mods & all that. As opposed to the V8 owners who are USUALLY more of the car enthusiasts.

I have a V6 & I'll flash the lights/wave at any other camaros I see. I usually only do it to the ones I notice mods on though.

I came upon a bunch of modded cars the other day when the sun was out. They were everywhere. Ferrari's, Porsche's, tons of Corvette's, and it seemed like every generation of muscle car was out in force. The drivers were friendly and would punch it briefly just to sound off.

The roads were loaded with the sporty/muscle crowd and they were on their best behavior which is something I've never seen before. It's been 9 months since Chicago saw good weather like that and I imagine it was the cause for a smile. No mischief just really cool cars EVERYWHERE!

Agree , everybody's into the camaro so there's all types that drives them now but I make eye contact with all

GYac 05-04-2013 01:19 PM

No but in my area I usually flash my headlights or throw a wave and 9 times out of 10 i get the same back with other camaro owners.

I dont discriminate agaisnt v6's either!

AmericanMuscleCars 05-12-2013 01:24 PM

I don't ger why people even discriminate against v6's anyways!

xVengeancex28 05-12-2013 01:41 PM

Sounds awesome

In my town there are maybe 2 dozen camaros, which is not a whole lot. Im 1 of 2 inferno orange metallic SS' that i know of which is pretty cool. I still get waves and thumbs up probably because our kind is somewhat of a rare species on my towns road LOL. 75% of the camaros i see are mostly stock though the other 25% are modded like mine or have minimal exterior enhancements

I was around also and your right, there will never be another Spring/Summer of '09.
The Mid Atlantic caravan to Valdosta Ga for fest1 was a blast and just driving around in general
cannot be duplicated today imo. I had one of the first Summit Whites on the road and drew crowds
wherever I went. Today not so much.

silentdoom 05-12-2013 01:59 PM

It's really non Camaro owners who make v6 feel discriminated. "Hey!? 'Dat thing a v8??"

We're all gonna feel it soon with them z28'ers :) I like my green.
