Do you feel like Paris Hilton in the Camaro?

So Ive had my 2ss for 3 days and feel like a Celeb.>

Anyone else that has take delivery get this feeling?

I mean I read and heard that it would happen, but now that its me I believe it. I get double looks from alot of people and everyone busts out there camera phones. I mean people hanging out the freeway taking video and asking questions at 70mph, Its pretty crazy.

Already 3 people invited me and the car to car shows.

The car is a Celebrity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I kind of feel the same way. People will fly up behind you with their camera phones to take pics. Guys hanging out the window at stoplights asking how you like it and when you got it. Asking to take pics while your sitting in a parking lot. Talking to you about it at gas stations. Thumbs up on the highway.

There may be a lot of GM haters out there, but I've seen quite a few people love the new Camaro.

I had posted that driving the Camaro was like being a rockstar up to the point when you realize it isn't you, it's the car.

Camaropete said, "it's like being the husband of a famous rockstar".

It's always fun to have one of the first of any new car to hit the streets. I can remember when I bought my 2005 Mustang GT. It was one of the very first of the S197 bodies to hit the streets in my area and I experienced the same type of hysteria as you are getting now. Like me then, I figure you and anyone else who is driving a 2010 Camaro right now, you will be the center of attention until the cars start hitting the street is greater numbers and the "new" of it wears off. I figure you have a good year or so before that happens.

Enjoy.

I get the attention when Im driving the H2 in my sig (mainly from cops). But I don't drive it everyday. Thats why I want to get the Camaro NOW!! It will be my daily driver. So I better hurry up and get it before the "new" factor wears off.

Oh, and Garagelogic. Do you have a full blown pic of your avatar? Im trying to tell people the instrument cluster looks like Wall-E but they just don't understand!! hahaha. That pic would help.

Yes, the car is a celebrity. People stop by our house and take pictures. The little kids especially love the Rally Yellow color which we have. They call it Bumblebee without the SS stripes. (My husband is painting the stripes on). Ours is 2SS, W/RS pkg, sunroof, automatic.
