Look at the bright side, at least they are interested in your car enough to ask you about it-----maybe we can convert a few people in the process

When people walk up and ask about the Camaro, I turn into a Camaro commercial trying to "sell" them one. I'm not even a salesperson. I inherently want others to experience a perma-grin.

I had a guy do this too me when I first got my car. He was staring right at the side panel that says "Camaro" and asked "hey that's a Camaro?"
um.....no..I just stole that off a Camaro and slapped in on my new Chevy Palomino....just to confuse people....LOL

The second day I had my car, a co-worker & I went to lunch. After, he was inside talking so I was standing by my car waiting. These 2 guys run over "Yo man, that car's the sh*t! What kind is it?" I said "Thanks. It's a Camaro." "Chev?"

This (^) sends shivers down my spine...people want to know about it enough to ask a stranger. Some of them aren't sports car buffs and just recognize a hot car!

What you're experiencing is a person's first impression of the new Camaro and its owner. Do us proud!!

I tend to get that, more often than not.


I had one guy (about 18-20 yrs old, ball cap straight brimmed with tags attached and cocked to the side, pants on the ground ) check over my car and finally ask "what size rims are those?". It's funny what people notice about the car.

Yep... A lady drove up to me in a parking lot and in one breath said,
"Nice car! Sorry.. I thought it was a Dodge."

B/c the fact that it's not a Dodge negates the fact that it's nice?
"oh hey, that WAS a nice car, until I saw it wasn't a Dodge, now it sucks..."

Yeah, sounds logical....
