I didn't know you had to be "rich" to own a camaro!?

Well this always comes up..."if you have a camaro it means you're rich"...many people have said it to me even people from this forum but I ignored. Well today it aggravated me because I had parked on a meter set to expire at 5:00 and I got to it at 5:02 and what do I see..a parking officer writing up my car! I argued a bit saying that it's just 2 min it's not a big deal and what does the parking enforcer say.."you can afford this ticket since you can afford a camaro!" I looked in disbelief because it is hard times right now and this person doesn't know my situation and 60 dollors is a lot right now and can go towards my gas!! It's just frustrating on how some people are so ignorant and jealous! Anyone had some one say something like that to them?

When I first purchased my car everyone asked did I get help, was it given to me, or I must be rich to be able to afford it. All I did was save up, finagle with the dealer, go at the end of the month, and it was when the dealer's were trying to get the 2011's off the lot.

You have to admit, the car looks expensive. You cant get mad at every person that doesnt know anything about cars and their prices, you will always be mad.

There is nothing worse than a jealous parking enforcement officer…who does he think he is??
On a serious note, I have had the comments about how expensive the car is. Mine wasn’t that expensive really, but it looks a lot like the expensive versions of the Camaro. I have the window sticker in my glove box, maybe I should put it back on when I park at expired meters??

Lol!!!! What does the expensive version of the Camaro look like? Im assuming the only big difference that most (non-Camaro) people would notice between "versions" is that the wheels are different.

Hey its not your fault your rich. Once you buy a camaro, they just send bags of money to your house. Or is that just with mine? LOL... I get the "Must be Nice" comments all the time too. Don't pay them any mind...

If $60 parking ticket mattered that much to you, you shoulda been out filling the meter at 4:59. Tickets suck big time, but it was your own fault, not the meter maid.
