Great stories, guys. You got it, Pete, bath in the limelight while it lasts. I truely believe it's only a matter of time until there are as many on the road as Mustangs, at which time we'll no longer be so special.

The interest level is really high. Around me, it's middle age and up. Not sure the younger gen. is so into it. Might be a ricer mentality, or in your case, Chewy, they're a bit jealous? Or, a new quad core Pentium is exciting stuff to them, but a car, eh.


2SS/RS Black/Black w-Cyber Gray stripes/Auto(under reconsideration) - ordered 10/18/08

My town threw a parade for me and built me a Camaro float to ride in. Then I received the key to the city.

Every day lots of people ask when I am getting it. Even people I've told like 1000000 times. But thats ok, at least they are showing interest, and they are just being friendly.

Have you gone for rides in their cars? If they are modified, I bet you they would surprise you...

However I also have a 914 w/ a v8 with fuel injection... thats the definition of TQ right there....

haven't ordered one yet, but whenever i'm talking about the car my folks at work are either like "oh so is it out yet?" or "hey i saw the camaro on the street last night" because there's a challenger driving around in the area and they can't tell the difference.

oh and i have a small printout on my wall at work and they're asking "so what car is that?"

Haha that's hillarious because I have had the same thing going at my work. I get asked questions about the Camaro at least 3 times a week. A few weeks ago the Quality manager (one of the big wigs) came into my officube and sat down and talked to me for a good 20 minutes about the car. Plus my Dad tells everyone he can about my pre-order.

So far I am the only one in my town that has ordered one out of 5 allocated to the dealer and it is the 2SS/RS CGM. The only person that knew was the Dealer GM and you guys and girls on here and I got an E-Mail yesterday that my car was being talkied about at the local pool hall by at least 20 or so people. They dont know who I am only that there is going to be a 2010 Camaro in town next year.
