I wasn't aware the ZR1 is a step down from anything....

It seems to handle its own with the Italians.

It's obvious the reason he chose to buy the new Camaro over the Corvette ZR-1 is because he likes Camaros alot end of story. All you have to do is watch every episode of Diners Drive Ins & Dives to know that because every episode he is driving in a 67 or 68 red convertible Camaro. Dont get me wrong I would LOVE to own a new Corvette ZR-1 its a dream car of mine too but the C6 Corvettes are getting kind of stale design wise since they have been out a while while I still like them thats why the new C7 is coming out in about a year. The new Camaro on the other hand is one of the sexiest cars on the road today its a newer car and on top of that this cars design just seems to NEVER get old to people. I have had my 2010 Camaro for close to two years now and still get thumbs up, stares and people gawking at it.

He does, a red SS with black top and uses it in the Food Network show Dinners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Wonder if we will see him use the new one in the show from time to time?

yeah, i would have to agree with you, but from a $200,000 car gone and replaced with a say $45,000 he can still buy a ZR1,

We need to get Guy on Camaro5 one night to talk about his 67 vert and the rest of his collection. He's a seriously cool dude and loves talking to folks. He should bring that shiney new vert to CamaroFest!

Let me tell all the guys something that think it's not possible to replace a 200k car for a 40k car. Just cause you have a bunch of money doesn't mean you can't look or let along like a car that the everyday man can afford. And oh how shocking he can buy that over a vette or another expensive car.

From personal experience although I don't own a 200k car I do still own a car that was 98k and did have a 145k car and still I even went out a brought a new 38k camaro over a 120k porsche I was looking at. So yeah it doesn't have to be a promotional thing. I mean really at this point does the camaro even need any more promotion? I think not.

The red 67 Camaro is not his car... it is owned by the producer of the show (DD&D). Guy has some great cars... and even a cool garage to go with them all but the 67 Vert is not his.

As mentioned by others... he is probably not done with replacing his Lambo and a ZL1 or ZR1 would be a cool addition to his collection.

As well as Camaro's, Guy likes Doxa watches.

I might not have my Camaro yet, but I do have a doxa watch .

Cheers,

He kind of annoys me, but he is a Camaro lover, so there's a saving grace.

Sorry for Guy's loss. But, until you let go of one, something better wouldn't have come, right? Look at the bright side, what a better way to have one of my favorite show hosts to own a car that I like. I think he should show off his new ride in one of the episod.

How do you hide a stolen yellow Ferrari? I got pulled over for doing 5 over on the freeway when driving a 12 year old FADED yellow camaro.
That car must have been stolen to order and is going overseas or to Mexico.
