"Oh...well it is just a CAMAROOO!" This from my neighbor who lives down the block from me and chose to park her 45th anniversary edition in front of my house to show off and then ran outside as I was pulling into my garage. As it turns out, she "won" her car in a divorce.

I am sure her ex damn near chewed off his right leg to get away from the man trap. But the 45th is cool (too bad her ex didn't get to keep it though). LOL

I'm lucky I live in a city that is mostly american cars and trucks so people don't hate on a nice camaro around here all I get is nice car and how much was it. Before the camaro I had a BMW m3 vert and had nasty comments a few times about it not being american and had to park in the way back at work because it being German.

A bit of a prelude - My dad did Chevys when I was 14, Fords when middle bro was 14 (12 years difference) Mopar when youngest Brother was 14 (10 years more). So when i recently got Chained Blue Lighting the comments were
Middle Brother "Your never going to beat a Stang if you weigh 5500 lbs"
Reply "I already dusted two on the way back home, A 302 model, and a 2011 GT 500"
Youngest Brother "you hung up on those old model caaamaaarooo's that can't *drag* race"
Reply "Lets do St Louis to Denver and back this weekend. I'll pick you up on the way back and take you to the parts store".

The Gt 500 at a stop light. Female passenger rolls down window and waves. I wave back. College boy driver revs car (can tell by body roll). I ignore him. Passenger leans out and knocks on window, I roll window down. College boy revs car again (see the little body roll again) I look over and smile. She leans back into car. Driver revs and light changes. I rev and smoke him all the way to the next light. I look over he pulls up and she said "what do you have in it" A V8 was my reply. He followed me to the mall and we talked for 90 minutes about cars. Nothing but respect for the Camaros.

This morning after dropping my 14 1Le at the dealer, I'm sitting at Enterprise rent a car (dealer paid) and one of the guy is making conversation and asks me what I 'm having worked on. I tell him a Camaro that I bought on black Friday and he very excitedly says "ohhh..is it the one with a HEMI?" He was dead serious!

I had a guy try to tell me that his stock 2007 Toyota Tacoma would "kick my ass" in a drag because I "only have a v6" and "having a v6 is like having a mini van with a sports car's body"

No one really says anything negative about mine, although I do get a little playful ribbing for parking at the back of the parking lot.

Some girl asked me if I had a hemi in my car at a red light a few days ago.
My girlfriend was in the passenger seat laughing her ass off.
She's said to me " you should have seen the look on your face when she said that"

the fact you were in the "drive through" should be a sign that it isn't a ZL1. hahaha ZL1 people don't eat in such a..... unwealthy atmosphere! They go to restaurants with cheering crowds and get valet parking like that 18 year old guy was saying! haha

Luckily no one is very rude about cars around here...we all seem to share the common interest in going fast whether it's in a Ford, GM, etc...

Guy: oh man is that supercharged!?
Me: yup
Guy: its stick right?
Me: no its auto, i would have gotten stick but this car was already supercharged and i bought it for v6 pricing. So 478 at the wheels is not too shaby for the price man.
Guy: yeah i would never drive an auto, thats why my honda is stick.
Me: really....(looked at his honda and then laughed in his face)

A kid in a primered-out 90's model Civic hatchback pulled up next to me at the gas station a few months ago. I could barely comprehend what he was saying over the incredibly loud/rough idle coming from his little 4 cylinder motor.

When he revved his motor, a puff of smoke that resembled a fart popped out of his rusty exhaust can. That kid told me that he wanted to race for "pink slips" and that he'd "smoke me". He had a serious look on his face. I just laughed at him and he drove away after restarting his Civic after it stalled.

I can't wait to run across a 2015 Mustang owner that buys 4 banger Eco-boost engine. I'm sure they will have some decent performance but I'm saving this line for them. "Hey my neighbor had a 1977 4 cylinder mustang 5 speed....."
