lots of hate on another car forum...

since I picked up my corvette a couple weeks back, I have started frequenting a few other forums much like I did when I first started learning about our beautiful Camaros. I am really surprised how much hatred the corvette guys have for the Camaro.
I really thought that the folks that drive Corvettes would have been more appreciative of their chevy counter-parts but thats not the case. lots of hate on one particular site, and no I will not say which site, I still am learning alot there just do not like the overall negativity about our beautiful Camaros.
I would expect a certain amount of Camaro bashing on a mustang or challenger forum, but was disappointed that the corvette guys act the way they are about another chevy. mind you it's not everyone but enough to catch my attention. I don't think I have ever seen anyone post a negative comment about the vette on this site.
just another way for us all to realize what a great site camaro5 is.

A lot of the local Corvette guys have negative comments to make about our cars. Mostly because we take "their" spots at local shows. Even though they only show up with 3-5 max and we show up with 7-8 minimum.

You don't need to go to another forum to find camaro hatred. There's plenty enough to go around right here. V8 hates V6, and manuals and autos both hate each other. I'm so close to calling it quits on this forum.

I wouldn't call it hate, I'd call it friendly ribbing. Although there is always that person who is a complete A**.
It's the internet, you gotta have thick skin or else don't even bother touching your computer....

True. It just amounts to clutter.

and to the OP, I think is partially due to the fact that the Camaro is in the same class of the Corvette to other people. The design is unreal, the power is unreal. I think its the close competition that turns them to hate on the Camaro.
Majority of uninformed people think the camaro is in the same price range of the corvette. And the Camaro design draws more attention for now, until the C7 comes out

I got nothin but love for my brother the Corvette...but your right..the hate is everywhere and its never gonna stop....as long as people can keep it civil in the forums amongst themselves.

There are almost no reason the Corvette owners should have hate for the Camaro ( they have the better performing car as it is most generally)....actually the only reason I can think of is that the Camaros have basically stolen the show from Corvettes over the past few years because of looks. Hard to deny that.

That will chance once the C7 is released.

I like all muscle cars and don't care what it is. Some I won't own but have no issue. It is all what fits that person most IMHO. I don't like the looks of the mustang not my car and I chose to buy a camaro. Could have a z06 but chose different, no disrespect to a vette owner or mustang or dodge owner but not my style.

Maybe the corvette guys are hating because their engine is in our camaro? lol. Either way I love both the corvette and the camaro. The ZR1 is a beast.

I find it that most everywhere you go most people who own a performance car says crap about 5th gens. Its just its the newest design and everyone wants to hate on it. Thank god it takes heat off us 4th gen guys tho. We were the hated ones until you guys showed up

I think the corvette has kind of been the top dog for a long time but now it's not so much anymore. Our SSs have the same engine as their base models. With a few simple mods our cars can beat out many of the vettes on the road but they paid way more for theirs. Also, In my opinion, the new camaros draw more attention than the Corvettes simply because they are newer and people aren't used to seeing them everywhere...yet... Many of the girls I have talked to think that the Corvettes are for older guys probably just because young guys usually can't afford them and don't drive them. I would probably be pretty mad if I was in their shoes, too. I don't think I would hate on the Camaros, though. Thats just ignorant. It all comes down to this: They are hating because we are stealing their thunder like crazy.

I don't think they paid way more for it. I have a buddy that picked up a 2011 base as it can get corvette for 45,XXX out the door. And there are top model camaros that go for around that right?
