How do people constantly fall for this buffoonery? It is, typically, either a phone call from a dealer employed telemarketer or a mass-produced letter in the mail.
"We need your car"

It's essentially a very old and rudimentary trick to get some poor sap into the showroom in the hopes of making a sale.

~6-7 years ago, I had a 2000 Olds Intrigue as a work car. According to the dealer, they needed that too.

It's obvious I'm both very lucky and my bone stock camaro is special. Apparently I'm a millionaire too if those publisher clearing house people would hurry the Hell up

Been said a million times before...a car is the WORST 'investment' one can make. But drive it, or garage it and worship it, just don't think a Chevy Camaro is going to make you money...Unless less you garage and worship it for, oh, about 50 years. AND DON'T MOD IT!!!

Here's to your good, long health!

I'm gonna go see about it. Like I said, worst case scenario, I get back in my car and burn some rubber out of the lot. I know I'll end up taking a loss but I really want a zl1 and I really like having a warranty

First: yes this is common dealer schtick. They get your car back and resell it AND sell you another car. A 2 for 1.

Second: why only 500 miles? Was this thing sitting because of an accident or a problem?

I was wondering the same thing. I'm taking tomorrow off to go to the doctors office and I'm gonna stop at the dealership. I definitely have some questions

just go with what you like and feel will enjoy more. I like the performance of the 6th Gens but i like the look of my 5th gen better too so i know what you're saying.

for me its simple: i already have a camaro so i am just waiting till the 32 Valve DOHC Gen VI motors come out in vettes and camaros to take the 5 year payment plunge. I'm definitely gonna get one of those brand new. A 5.5 DOHC V8 in a Corvette/Camaro singing to the tune of ~8000 RPMS from the factory. Makes my skin tingle just thinking about it.
