I Never Expected This Reaction

When I purchased my Camaro I was impressed with the power, the handling, and fabulous looks. But I never expected the reaction from others to my car.

So yesterday, heading down the road by me, I am running a few car lengths behind a gorgeous brand new Corvette. It was a copper-color convertible, with the top down. I noticed him because he turned in front of me at a light.

A few miles down the road we pass a few teenagers (boys) coming home from school (we have year-round schools around here). They wave at ME! NOT THE Vette, but ME! Of course I waved back.

Gotta love my Camaro. This is just one of so many similar encounters. Folks just love the car. I purchased a car but I own an icon.

it's happened to me a ton of times too. get an exhaust upgrade and i swear it'll be 100X worse. with this dual mode exhaust everyone can hear me coming. they turn right away just to see what the sound is coming from. And then when they see the camaro, get a ton of waves and thumbs up... took it downtown and i felt like a celebrity haha

Everybody loves our Camaros, look at all the non Camaro owners who hang out here on a Camaro forum, best looking Camaros ever made.

I'm sorry but if a Camaro and a Corvette come down the street, I'm still waving at the Corvette. Let's get serious here.

Opinions vary. I'm serious- This Camaro is a better looking car.

I get compliments almost daily. Moreso now that I have a very loud exhaust. Even police officers wave. Most of them are car people too. CHILDREN also love this car. I see kids walking with their parents and I see them pointing. I always give the car a little blip of the throttle so the kiddos can hear it.

My son LOVES this car as well. A few weeks back I was test driving an Acadia for my fiancee. I ended up leaving the camaro at the dealership and taking the Acadia home to show her (She hates car shopping, and the dealership left my Camaro indoors with a note that said do not touch. Amazingly nobody touched it, and the mileage was just how I left it)

My son sees the Acadia, and with tears in his eyes asks "Dad, where's your camaro??" I thought he was gonna cry. I told him not to worry and that it would be back tomorrow.

Best part. I love this car more than any of the above people. It's a great machine. Brings a smile to my face every day. All the attention in the world can't replace that.
