Couldn't resist - cancelled my Camaro order today

I hope I don't regret it, but I did stay with Chevy. Got a new 08 Convertible Vette 3LT Black/Black. MSRP was $64,700 .... bought it for 51,500 with 0% financing for 60 months. At the end of the day, my out of pocket between the 2SS/RS i had on order and this car is only $5k more with a difference of $24k in the MSRP.

I am sure I will wish I had a Camaro when then arrive, but this seemed like too good of a deal to pass up.

Thats all fine and well TOMSERVO!! In my opinion more heads will turn at my Camaro then will at the vette. It is what I believe and how I feel besides It wont be that much faster. As of know a stock vette does 0-60 in 4.3-4.4. Maro will do 4.6-4.5 so maybe by a nose buddy

That's a great price for sure, congrat's. My wife has the 08 coupe, wanted the convertible, but last year they were way closer to msrp. Hope you stick around to share the Camaro love.

I agree that the Camaros will be unique. Time will tell whether they are unique forever or for a brief period of time. Either way, I am sure they will be great cars.

Still, this was too hard for me to resist, especially because I really wanted a convertible, but wasn't going to wait until 2011. I'll get photos up when I have it in hand. Have a 6 hour ride to pick it up.

I will learn to live with the round tailights and no ABL, but HUD and navigation help.

The original post states that the difference in cost is only $5k, that would put the 2SS at $46,500????? I don't see how you can get an SS much over $40k w/ every option. What am I missing?

But regardless, enjoy the new car.

You need to factor in the 0% financing versus the 7% currently charged on new vehicles. My MSRP was $38,500ish. With financing charges at 7%, the totla was $46, xxx.

I would have done the same thing were it not for the fact that its such a bitch for me to get in and out of the vette when using it as somewhat of a daily driver in good weather. Congrats....wish you had been ahead of me in line at the dealer though!

You stayed with Chevy so I'm cool with that. Good deal too.

There just is not any other car in the market and my price range that I want other than the Camaro. I'm happily stuck with my choice.

Yup, can't believe people think Camaros are going to be some rare car that no one else is going to have. Sorry, but that's the truth.

To the original poster, that deal was too good to pass up, you still stuck with GM so that's fine in my book, more power to you and your Corvette.
