I get pics taken all the time.
I had a guy whip out his cell phone to start filming me as I was sitting at a light.

The Cam and exhaust draws a ton of attention.
and the Dusk edition gets people staring and asking questions even more.

people always want to know about the interior.

I still get it all the time.. but my Camaro is unique in its execution of the "BumbleBee" theme.

At least every other day I'll see people behind me in traffic whipping out their cell phone cameras to take a pic of my back end. Might be my license plate.

Back in June of 2009 it was a multi-daily occurrence. The last time I noticed it happen has been a year or so ago.

Don't get a lot of people taking pics. But I often come out to the parking lot with a couple people gathered around the car. Especially when I leave the mail slot scanner on.

Wife tells me all the time "this car sure attracts a lot of attention"

Just about every day I has someone come up to me to talk about my car and people take pictures of it all the time. It makes me feel good to know others enjoy the work.

Never. In Chicago, I see at least three or four camaros every day. We are nothing special here, I guess, lol.

I never noticed anyone taking a pic of my '02 Z/28, but my wife can't leave the house in her car without people hanging out of their car taking pics. Here is a pic of her '98 Twin-Turbo Supra with BPU KIT(460 Horsepower).



Maybe, the 2013 SS/RS will occasionally get noticed.

It has been so long since it lost its picture factor. I do get the thumbs up from people about every day

heh has nothing to do with losing it's picture factor..
now you have to stand out from the rest..

mod the crap out of it and people take notice big time.

nothing grabs attention like a flawless paint, big wheels, mean nasty muscle car camming it's ass off at a light or crawling through a parking lot.

They always seem to take pics of this view. I always see cellphones comin' out in my rearview. My wife actually spots gawkers for me as we cruise around.

I don't believe it has ever happened to me that I am aware of. But being black all the ZL1 stuff just blends in to the rest of the car. Plus there are no fewer than 4 black V6 5th Gen Camaros that I see in traffic, or drive by their house, on a daily basis, and I have a mile and half drive each way, plus no fewer than 2 Black 5th Gen SS's that I see several other days a week. So we probably all blend together in lay people's eyes. That's just the black ones, Red, Yellow all over and one white one with pink stripes, bowties, gills, and anything else that one could paint pink. It is a girl car, I confirmed.

And then there is a Black '68 SS or SS clone, whatever, that I pass every single day, haven't seen it driven, it's in an apartment parking lot. If I ever see someone with it I'm definitely going to talk to them.

And a disclaimer to the no one ever takes pictures, I'm a fast food aficionado, and up until recently all the guys working the different fast food windows would always, always ask if it was custom, and they were always surprised to here all that stuff on it came from the factory, but no pics
