No Love for the Camaro

Hey Guys and Girls, so i was working my job at publix the other day and asked a customer if she wanted help out to her car so she said yes and little did i know it was the lady i pass everyday in a white 2LT/RS and i thought that was kinda cool. We got to talking (especially to kill time) and asked if she ever sees a transformers camaro around town and she says without skipping a beat, "Ehh it's ugly" lol then i told her it was mine and in a gauche way she got in her car and waited for me to leave. no doubt it was pretty awquard lol

Later that day, i had a mustang enthusiast come through the line and "TELL ME" that ford did a better job redesigning the stang like its ancestor than GM did....my Boss right beside me i pulled out my phone and showed them pictures of my camaro....needless to say that shut them and quickly changed their mind (pic below)

You're surrounded by the wrong people, darlin' - most here have reported nothing but love for their Camaro! Also keep in mind that most women probably aren't Transformers fans so the Transformers Edition means nothing to them. I watched the cartoon as a kid and have the entire Gen 1 dvd collection myself.

She probably just didn't like the bright yellow. I know there are colors I consider to be ugly on a Camaro but everyone has their own preference.

As for the 'Stang owner... there's no helping him. The new Mustang =

I'd never go as far as to call any color of a Camaro ugly... There are some I wouldn't like for myself, but ugly isn't the word. Not my taste would be more fitting. Or at least say "I don't like yellow"

I would never say something like that lady did about another Camaro. To me, that's like saying you love your son more then your daughter- it just ain't right.

As far as the Mustang goes, well that's a Hatfield vs McCoy thing. It's to be expected. I would still have a very tough time saying anything bad about someones car to them- after all, cars are our passion.

[Mustang vs Camaro] [Steelers vs Ravens] [Hondas vs Harleys].

I'm obviously a Camaro and Harley owner who has Ravens seasons tix!!! Rivalrys make it interesting.

I grew up watching and loving transformers as a kid, I cried when Optimus died in the first movie, but when someone even thinks of telling me something like "Oh you bought that Camaro because of transformers right?" I absolutely see red. I despise that this awesome car is associated with the transformer movies, and I can totally understand why someone would give you an eye roll for a "transformer" car. I fell in love with this car the first time I saw the concept for it years ago, and to have it sullied with a transformer band wagon label just irriates me.
