Just curious.....

So I've had my camaro for over a week now and want to see how many people do this. So when u park your car far away from the building how many do a double take and look back at their cars?

I have been looking back at my parking job, checking for lights on, windows open, etc. for 40 years. With every vehicle no matter where I park.

For me it's more to see how badly I'm parked. Then I admire him.

I have been known to place a chair on my front porch, positioned so that I can sit and look at my bitchin' yellow Camaro. Like yesterday.... did it then.It's like watching TV, except for the fact that thing that I am lusting over in front of me is mine, and I can have it whenever I feel the need.

This, and when I drop off my son at his mother's. Bumblebee draws kids like bees to honey, and they're all riding around on their wobbly bicycles, too close for comfort. I told the ex last night that I'm be bringing the Jeep from now on. LOL

I do from time to time. I get to work and I sometimes I rush to get in. But generally I just look to see how badly I've parked. I think mine is the best car on the American road, and no one can tell me different!!!

There could be a book writen on the common characteristics of most Camaro owners, at least most of the ones who love their Camaro enough that they are regular posters on Camaro5. Of course nothing is true for everyone, but this is one of those things most of us do. Don't worry, you are a normal Camaro5 Camaro owner.

What's wrong with you people? It's only a car! It's not some exotic piece of art or something!

Ok! I guess I do it too, like all the time! BTW. It's embarrassing when caught!
