There is always someone faster or with more power. It never ends but when I used to show off my Cobra, I would never talk down to a V-6 or I-4 owner, because if no one bought those, there would be no V-8's... If I bought a V-8 I wouldn't drive it as much and paying more for less enjoyment doesn't make sense to me or the wife.

there are some ignorant mods here too but I wont call them out before I get banned. You have some SS owners that are respectable and very knowledgeable and my hats off to those, but then you have the "redneckSS", who can't stand to see the little v6 look better or almost catching up with their SS and in some cases even pass them. There's always going to be haters regardless of if they own an SS or m3. Is just the nature of humans. The thing that piss me off the most is receiving hate from your own v6 so called brothers. I try to treat everyone equal and I really dont see any fun in being ignorant in real life or on a internet forum. Dont pay those ignorant f**ks any mind. Most of them are a bunch of internet clowns anyway.

well im with SoCal Head Turners and we have a few v6s (me Included) and not a sigle guy with a v8 baggs on us meaningfully about us having a v6.

it really seems like its just the person in generals personality. . .BUT it does seem like typical v8 owner tends to be an a$$. . . i dont feel like im an a$$ all the time haha but i do want to get a V8 in the future. iv been bit by the speed bug and crave the power and sound.

I got my V6 to be a daily driver. I love it, it's everything I have wanted and it can reach 30 miles a gallon for me. If I want to tear up the street and destroy what I come across I pull my 68 C10 out of the driveway. It has a 406 small block pushing over 500 horse and torque at the crank. I destroyed an SS yesterday on the freeway, and with my exhaust I rattled his brains because he had his windows down. I just don't drive it that often because going 50 miles an hour I only get 13 miles a gallon. Hence why I bought a V6.

Most lay people that don't know any better think it is a V8 anyway, probably because I drive like a raving lunatic and most are scared to h*ll of me...LOL! Love to drive it and when it is digging in to the asphalt it is the most exhilarating sensation. at that point I am not debating V8 Vs V6 thingy in the back of my mind, the neurons are firing with exhilaration! furthest thing from my mind!

The people who have said anything negative about mine being a v6 all drive pieces of crap and have no room to talk. Everyone else loves it. :-)

It's about common sense and reality.
So you paid $5k more for your loaded v6 than a 1ss? Do you know how much a 1ss costs? Mine was $33k....please don't tell me you $38k for a v6......

Op, don't worry about what other people say. Who cares? I've had plenty of people walk up to me and say "nice car, is it a six speed?" I say yep, six speed auto. They look at me crazy and say "you should have bought a manual" my rebuttal goes like this:
-are you paying the note?
-do you have to drive it?
-would you like to shift and clutch for me everyday in sitting traffic?
-where's your SS with a 6 speed manual?
-the true faster cars are auto anyway

People are alway going to have something to say, buy the fact of the matter is, its your car....if your happy with it, then eff em.

Here we go again....Lately it's been people trashing anything that looks like black people may have been involved, anything that has to do with the greatest steering wheel ever made (10-11 of course) or anything to do with lambo doors. Im kinda surprised by how many people get on this site to complain about random stuff that really doesn't pertain to them. I've read some rude comments to some pretty strait forward questions. Like this kid asking if he should upgrade to a v8. Some people ripped that kid a new one calling him spoiled and other rude remarks. It's the Internet so you have to take it with a grain of salt but some people just say whatever mean shit comes to mind. I started checking this site for new upgrades for the 2012. It's gonna take time but that's why I'm here. I love looking at people's cars and trying to figure out what direction I'm gonna go with mine. I think I get sidetracked with crazy people and I'm kinda addicted right now so, whatever. Addiction is supposed to have ups and downs, right? lol.
Example...

Pretty stupid if you ask me. We all spend hours on this site because we love our Camaro's. Yet we should be treated as bottom feeders to the almighty SS.

I don't understand why this should bother you. I decided to buy a v6 because thats what I could afford. Not everyone has 30k + to spend on a vehicle. I sure as hell don't lol. And if i decided in the future after more driving experience to add power I can with FI. 400 rwhp for me is more than reasonable for a street vehicle. So when i see the bashing of the v6 in this forum i mostly ignore because everytime i walk up to my car i know i got what i wanted .
