THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

The f-bods have been part of my life since before I got my license. I loved my Firebird and every one of my 8 Camaros for different reasons. It's all I've ever driven and I can't imagine my life without a Camaro.

Thank You and GM! As a previous owner of the 1980 and 1984 Z/28, thanks for letting me get into a new Camaro once again! And thanks for coming to events and mingle, I think that is just awesome.

THIS is why the muscle car was always considered the 'Poor mans sports car' I guess.

But don't forget, too, that it also devalues them a bit as far as the non-luxury sports cars.

Probably just because I tend to notice Camaros more but I sure do see them all over used car lots.

I know I'm raining on this parade but I too am one of the faithful who put there money down 2 years before production. For this my reward is a car that has spent 3 months at the dealer as I keep making loan payments and insurance payments on a broke car.I am learning a lesson on faithfulness?

As a kid my Dad, may he RIP, gave me stock in GM and I have been a GM guy and now GM family every since. Throughout the years, even those dark years of the eighties oil crisis and the challenges of the last few years "I have kept the Faith". I love my three Chevrolets including my Camaro. For me the world would be a dark place without GM. Thank all of you at GM, the Plants and dealerships for keeping the best American automobile in the world alive. I know I speak for all of us here on Camaro5 when I say.... to GM the king. Joe

Congrats to everyone involved! However, can someone please tell me when the Camaro/Mustang/Challenger began being considered as sportscars? Corvette? Absolutely. The others, in my book, not.

guess they "could" be considered "muscle cars" they sure arn't compacts or luxery,or mis-size,...too much performance oriented to be called anything but "sports car" or "muscle car's"

i sure do like the looks of the vettes,but never owned one and probably never will for two reasons: 1) the wife wont let me cause it's not "practicle" (which neither is the camaro for that matter,can barely fit a small person in the rear seat)and 2) can't afford the note AND insurance,but that does'nt keep me from wanting a vette,

Thank you Camaro Comrades! Camaro & Corvette made up 1/3 of 2011 Sports Cars Sales

It goes to show you, if you build a great product at a reasonable price the people will buy it. Chevrolet and GM thank you for not throwing in the towel.

I celebrated my 3rd year of ownership of my 2010 Camaro 2SS with the up-grades in the photo. What do you guys think?
