Wife doesn't like all the attention Ginger gets.

No, she is not jealous of Ginger (well she is, but that's a different thread).

Whenever we are out in Ginger we, like many other Camaro owners, get a lot of looks, pictures taken and compliments. She thinks its pretty cool, but when we are passing through a rough part of town she gets nervous when a car full of guys staring at my car, like they are going to jump out and car jack us or something. She is a worrier so I tell her that's just what she is doing, over worrying. I tell her she has been watching too many movies.

Also, she is still shocked every time I leave my top down when we go to the store or out to eat.

Anyone else, or your SO, freak out from the attention your car gets?

Yeah, I had some sketchy looking guys pull up next to me near the Half Price Books on NW Hwy. I was a little worried that we were about to get car jacked but they were just complimenting the car. lol

You are not a true car guy if you have never named you car.

I'm with Scuba Steve...
I named my last car Honey (after the first Bond girl in Dr. No named "Honey Rider") and it didn't go over well.
I said "But it's a f***ing car!"
She said "Exactly! A f***ing car! You named an inanimate object. You named an inanimate object after a girl! And a slut James Bond girl at that!!"

So in an attempt to make peace, I tried changing the name to Judi (after Judi Dench ). But the damage was done, and the point was apparently missed.

So this car... is simply, and will forever be... the Camaro.

My wife is the same way....

I don't trust the a**holes in this world...or the weather... enough to leave my top down unless I know I can see it well from inside (guess I'm just as paranoid as the wife...).

Also, my wife seems to think my Camaro is a dude (and I know she is a sexy lady)...we have been going back and forth on names since we got HER 2 weeks ago....still undecided :(

I think it is bad luck not to name your car....like a boat!

i did not name my Trans Am but my wife doesn't care about the attention the car gets...she is usually pointing out the people on the side of the road that are gawking or giving a thumbs up.

It's part of it. I dont mind the attention until some sleezy guy tries to hit on me or wave me to the side of the road, that gets creepy. Sometimes I wish I could hide in a "normal" car once in awhile but I can't even drive my b/f's car for that. His charger is awesome and gets a lot of attention too so either way, I'm screwed, lol! Oh well, sit back and enjoy it!

Tell her to get her CCW... lol

Also, I agree with naming your car, but this car has far too much man sack to be named Ginger. I prefer something such as brutus, or man stick....

I have had a guy stop and talk to me at a stoplight and a few people just stare as I drove by. All in all it is a head turner.
