Tough decision. Only you can make that decision. Drive the Vette when it's available and make an informed choice. Good luck.

Here is the 2012 Corvette lt4

Here is the pic of both cars.

My ZL575 has 25K miles. Trying to get 35K for trade.

I still love my SS but really like the way the Vette rides.

Two totally different vehicles.

I'd say hold on to the camaro. That ZL575 is probably gonna go up in value and with the new vette coming out soon that model in the pic will be old news. That's if it were me of course. Maybe a trade fir the new vette, that's what I'd consider. Good luck!

The vette is nice but not as nice as the camaro maybe a z06 or the new vette have to see that one first. Just my opinion. That is one bad ass looking camaro

They are two totally different animals, I have loved the Camaro since I was 16 and bought my '69. I have driven several years/models of corvette starting with a '67/427 that one of my high school buddies bought, up to the current model. They truly are awesome cars, but the Camaro is my first love. Either way, you can't go wrong.

So I am being offered 35.5K for my car and they have come down to 59K for a car that has an MSRP of 74.549. Of course it's a 2012 and I am getting all kinds of incentives so they can sell it. With this being the 30th they really want to move the car.

This is the best dealership I have ever worked with. I am still so confused.

I owe 28K on my car with 44 payments left vs. financing 49K at 1.54% for 75months.

My wife thinks the ZL575 is more of a muscle car and the Corvette more for the high class.

The lt4 Vette is automatic with paddle shifters and of course mine is 6-speed manual with an MGW shifter.

Dude really...you're going to trade your V-8 muscle car for an automatic out-dated corvette.......???? You do understand the money you may be plunking down on that old vette could be used to buy a 2014 in a few months. The new stingray is going to be revolutionary.......and for the price that you are thinking of paying........

I agree. When the new Vettes come out, the market will be full of the older body styles that are traded in or sold outright because everyone will be wanting the new Vette. The C6 Vette is a great car, but the one you're looking at is already 2 years old, and you'll take a real beating when you want to unload it to get a new Camaro again or the C7 Vette. If you like your Camaro, keep it until the buzz over the C7 subsides a little bit in a year or so, and make your move then, unless you've got a woody for this C6 Vette.

My honest opinion is you're either with us, or you're against us, choose, but you choose wiesly
:p addle:

Seriously though, I kind of feel like most people really are an either or for this reason or that, their dad had one of these or those or whatever

Unless you've got means. I have a buddy who has a '69 Z/28, '90 something B4C, '96 Grand Sport, 2002 SS, and recently bought a '12 Z06, so like I said, most are either a 'maro guy or a 'vette guy, or gal, and it may be kind of in their blood in my opinion, unless you have means

You know what, I think unless you hate your Camaro, or absolutely love the vette, you keep the Camaro, its totally up to you, but I traded my 2009 Harley Rocker, which was a bike I got complements on every single time I rode it, in on a 2011 Street Glide. Ride quality is night and day, the street glide is a touring bike with touring suspension, and rubber motor mounts, one cylinder shuts down at idle, CD, all these wonderful things, but I hate it and I miss my old bike with a passion. The guy who bought my old bike from the dealer lives close to me, even though we don't know each other and we're both an hour away from that dealer, I've thought about looking him up and asking for an even swap even though my new one would Blue Book for more

I appreciate everyone's opinions. I decided to keep my Camaro. I love the post that 2012-1812 posted. I believe I would have been in a very similar situation as a day does not go by where I don't turn heads or get compliments on my Ride. They are so confused with the ZL575 badging. Most think its a 2012 or 2013 ZL1.

I'm glad I did not pull the trigger even though the deal was great.

Here is a shout out to Universal Chevy in Wendell NC. If anyone wants a good deal on a vette or ZL1 (they have a yellow 2013 six speed in the showroom). They do not mark anything up and are great to work with. Talk to Vince, Terry or Debbie.
