Anyone making a little bit of a statement

in buying a Camaro. I live in a neighborhood where Prius's reproduce like cockroaches. There's a bit of up yours in my purchase. Immature, I admit.

I'll be thinking about a Volt in about 10 years to add to the fleet if they come in orange

I've got a 6kW solar system on my roof and that would be the grocery getter car

Yeah, we live in Prius land. I get dirty looks from them all the time. I smile and give them the thumbs up.

"...a bit of up yours..." Oh, hell yes!
I want to pull up next to every Prius owner I see and say, "thank you for conserving fuel so that I can enjoy it in this beauty" and then just light 'em up!

I decided on the SS instead of the LT because I wanted a massive V-8 before the current government outlaws them. I see this as my final chance. Seriously.

After I got mine I had an environmentalist friend of mine rip me a new one. Apparently it's people like me that's killing the planet.

I got a the 6cyl, to boot.

Yes, there is a bit of a statement for me, but I suuurre do enjoy making it. I was driving my Silverado 6.0 one day and rolled up next to a Prius sporting a "What would Jesus drive?" bumper sticker.

I think Jesus will be rolling out of that tomb in a 2011 2SS/RS IOM on Easter Sunday !

You think there is a Prius owner's forum? What would they post? Pics of their custom painted batteries? Maybe their upgrade to 12" chrome rims?

I drive a Toyota daily to save miles on the Camaro. Also near 40 mpg helps with a 120 miles commute. However, I absolutely detest Prius'. Hybrid vehicles are a joke IMO.

I'm sure a few have managed to capture pictures of the aura of superiority that follows them everywhere they go.
