Scott, if you write a book, I'll be the first to buy it. Always soo captivating! Thank you for all your help and work you've done with bringing us back the Camaro. It's been 6 years that I've seen the design of the Camaro and it still takes my breath away. That's something to brag about

No words could express the desire when I was 9 years old and saw the 69 Camaro and I knew I wanted one but never could get my hands on it years later. When I saw the Concept at the SEMA show in 2006, I knew what the first brand new car I ever bought for myself was going to be. Team Camaro did it right and I know I own my dream that 9 year old had in 1969. That dream will continue with the ZL1............ Thank you all for bringing it back.

I have grown up in a GM family. We laugh at the idea of owning anything else other than the great cars GM produces. We've stuck by when things were great and awful. My dream car since I was young has always been a blue 1969 Camaro with white rally stripes. I remember when GM announced the "hiatus" of the Camaro. I was deeply upset and afraid that when I started driving I would never be able to own a brand new Camaro. I started driving before the Generation 5 Camaro prototype was announced, but remember hearing rumors all the time. I got really worried when Pontiac was shut down and GM was getting a bailout. I was afraid I would then never see the Camaro born again. I still continued to buy GM cars regardless. Then when the Generation 5 Camaro finally started to have light again I made the decision one day I would own one regardless of what engine and transmission. I remember the whole process to get my Camaro. It all started with my 2009 LTZ Malibu having repeated BCM issues that the dealership could NOT fix. Well after much headache, pain, switching dealers, etc I came to own a 2011 1LT RS Camaro. Since then I have not looked back and will never be without a Camaro now in case they ever go on a "hiatus" again. Along the way I have made some new awesome friends and had great experiences. I too dream of owning the ZL1 one day

All I can say is I stand behind the team a 100% and GM will always be in my blood.

Thank you Fbodfather, I've always driven GM cars, until 2009 I drove Saturns. Always wanted a Camaro but thought it would never be. Shows what I know, 2009 I needed a car, so I ordered a Camaro LS. Loved it so much, that when I came back from Afganistan my wife bought me an SS. (She's pretty smart even though she drives a Mustang GT, I think I'll keep her.)

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.

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?
