I have the 2010 camaro, but have to admit I have always wanted a vette. That is a very tough question. Drive em both and decide based on your interest. This camaro is like a dream car to me but then again so would a vette be.

They are different cars for 2 different purposes, no doubt. Camaros(5th gen) have that NEW "THING" about them right now. When they flood the roads they won t be as "unique" as they are now, and will be for a year or two, maybe a little more. I remember when GTOs came out and the new Mustang. They were the COOLEST. But it does wear off. I still think that GTOs and the new Mustangs are awesome to see, etc. But u gotta admit that it does wear out when they get "common" on the roads. On the other hand - Corvette. U can get a used 427 Z06, with low miles for a good price right now. It is a hard decision, i know! They both have something the other doesn t. It would be cool to have a new Camaro cause they are soooo "unique" right now! Personal preference! Good Luck! (Im thinking "out loud")

Camaro has rear seats ???

Comes down to if you need the extra room or not, the camaro looks huge compared to a vette. Either way you can't go wrong. For a full vette expirience though I would recommend to look for used Z06's, there are some great deals out there.

2 incredible cars but 2 different beasts! Having had a few Camaros in the past I had been anxiousely awaiting the 2010's arrival. Amazing looks had me immediately drawn w/ that old school vibe. Initially I wanted to buy the 2010 Camaro SS. I think being a Corvette owner I was disappointed just because I expected quicker response from the SS. They don't compare in speed.
In NJ any dealer that had a Camaro had them marked up and I was not going to pay over sticker. However, I still would have bought an SS if I found one immed. available at sticker because it's still a great car. Luckily, I found a 2LT/RS in PA at sticker (Carfagno Chevy) they were awesome. I even had GM points and they had no issues taking them.
So for an everyday car the Camaro is the one and I can keep the miles low on the Vette.
2 different Beasts, 2 incredible cars, both are Bad Ass!
