So who's gonna actually keep their car?

I have been asked lately if I plan on keeping my car for a long time or if I may let it go....Being as to alot of you may have had maybe a 1st-4th Gen in the past and also may have recently got rid of it and regret it now. Some of you are now trading or selling your 5th. Let me ask you guys the same question those who still have there's will you ever let it go for any reason?And for those who had.... a "camaro" Do you Regret the fact that you have let any Gen of yours go?

My answer.... I will never let mine go, it will have to be taken by force lol

BTW...I had a 98' that I sold....regret that to this day

I won't be getting rid of mine. I plan on modding the heck out of it after it's paid off.

Only way mine will go is if a Supercharged Z-28 is made.

The only reasons I would EVER sell my car:

financial hardship
serious medical situation

Short of that, I will never sell this car. I will be driving it when I'm way too old to be driving.

I am never going to get rid of mine... Personally, I waited for this car since 2006 and feel that I have way too much time invested in the "Camaro lifestyle" to EVER get anything different. But, when the 6th gen comes out, I'll just add that to the stable.

My plan is to eventually give it to my son when he is 17. I have a while to go since he just turned 1!!! I plan to have her looking just as good as when I bought her many years from now.

It depends on what comes in the future. I love my camaro, but if another camaro comes out in five years with 600 hp and gets 35 mpg thats not ridiculously priced, i will probably let her go.

If only dreams became real though.

As long as I am able I plan on keeping my SS. I had a 99 SS that for some crazy dumb reason I wanted a brand new 4x4 Crew Cab 2500, well less than 6 months into owning it I was kicking myself in the butt for trading in my SS. My husband also owned a 92 (z28 I think can't remember exactly) Camaro that he bought in 2005 restored it and turned around and sold it to a friend, now he wishes he hadn't. Therefore maybe this time we will have learned our lesson! If I could afford it I would get an LT as a daily driver.

My sentiments exactly. If I had not lost my 4th gen to Katrina, I would still have it. This car will keep me happy fo a long time. If I ever start to get bored with it I will simply do a few mods and keep going.

Cool man your car is awesome (you should definitely keep it haha), was just asking because I wanted to make sure you saw the vid from the drive up to Camaro fest. Couple of shots of you.

This car is my "Gran Torino" like in the Clint Eastwood movie. I plan on keeping my 1SS forever. In this state with Obama's buddy, Deval Patrick as our governor, our 6.5% sales tax, our annual 2.5% excise tax, I feel taxed to death. I am sick and tired of providing freebies for the non producers, including our large population of Illegal Aliens. I will replace my 2001 Buick as needed and never drive my Camaro in the winter. You get severely punished in this liberal bastion for buying a new car. I am fed up with getting my f$%#ing pocket picked. If you buy new tires for your SS in Taxachusetts, you will pay $113.00 in sales tax. We can get away with buying our tires in New Hampshire, but not our cars.

I do believe I will keep mine. It is my first new car that I actually had built for me, so it does have sentimental value to me.

Also, I am still underneath 1500 miles and have not been able to actually "put my foot in it"..but I aboslutely LOVE driving the car, just cruising. Never felt that way with any of my other cars. I believe this car is a complete package to me, comfort, performance, and looks. It's a keeper.

I'll probably trade up to the next-gen Camaro - after I pay this one off around 2015/6. But you can bet I'll be a Camaro driver for the next few decades of my life.
