Camaro: full circle

Featured on homepage

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I got a call today by my mother, and she said there's a Camaro at Joe Basil Chevrolet, in town here...so I head down there, asap -- and I pull in, and spot a beautiful silver 2SS with polished rims and black stripes. MSRP $35-somethin'.

(It was right next to a black Corvette convertible, and I have to say -- I really do think the Camaro has more of a presence than the Vette. )

Anyways, the car JUST came in...it was no more than an hour between the call, and when I got there...by the time I pulled in -- the car was sold (with a $2500 markup)

Another guy pulled in as I was standing there drooling, and he was in an identically-colored 1969 Z28. I almost fell over. He asked the new owner if he'd pull them up next to each other for pictures...and the guy was cool and said "yeah". There were at least 7 other people besides me with Cameras.

These images are impressive...when you consider it's been 40 years between the the 1969 and it's design-inspired new sibling. The Camaro brand has come full circle and ready for another 40 years.

Having not seen one in person for almost 4 months, now...this revisit reminded me just how much I HAVE to have this car.

Enjoy!

EDIT: When he turned it on to move it (LS3)...it was a heavenly serenade. Quieter, but better than the '09 Mustang, imo.

Thank you

You made my day with these pics---good job. Both cars are gorgeous. Black and silver, my personal favorite. I think these pics show just how good design job the 2010 is. The 2010 walks the line between retro and modern right down the middle. Thanks again!!!

So what's the chance that 2 Buffaloneans would both post side by side pics of a 1st and 5th Gen in the same day?
