Cool Random awkwardness by random people

Hey fellas this is my first post and I'm happy there is people out there as passionate as me about te camaro.im 20 years old and I bought my own 2012 2lS. Before that I had a civic lol. HUGE upgrade. Before when I had the civic it was just another car. Now that I have a camaro and I bought it, I have this feeling of absolute pride in my car. I don't even know how to explain it. I was never a car guy and now my car is my baby.
Lol my question is do you guys ever get random people taking pictures? My car is still fully stock(but it's still a beautiful car)(especially in manual mode). The other night I was at the drive through and i had people taking pictures of my car lol. It was satisfying, prideful, yet very awkward because I know it is pure stock(shows how the camaro stock is admired by everyday people). You guys with the modded SS must feel like celebrities lol

Thanks yall

May I be the first to welcome you, and yes, you will find many people here who share your sense of pride. Congratulations, and welcome to the family!

I had pictures taken of my V6 when I had one, but none of my SS yet that I know of.

Yes, welcome. I have had, on several occasions, random people walk up to the car, whip out their camera-phone and snap a few pictures. Kind of cool until they begin to touch the car, I then push the panic button and watch them flee.

I was approached at the gas station last weekend by an elderly woman, 70 ish about my anniversary SS. I have full tattoo sleeves and was wearing a short sleeve shirt. So I thought it odd when she walked up and asked if it was this years model. I replied yes and she stated it was " gorgeous " lol.

I had a group of elderly men walking into an amusement park with their families and one of the men saw me driving slowly by the front entrance. He stopped everyone in his party to make sure they saw my car.

OP, congrats and get used to it!!

I've had a lot of elderly women complimenting my car too it caught me off guard. But not just elderly both sexes all ages. But chicks really seem to dig it. It's crazy, dunno if it's the color or what. But I've seen people taking pics. Just yesterday I was at a drive thru and my dog likes to stick his head through the moonroof and the people in front on me had their hands out the windows taking pics with their phones.

I just pulled into a parking lot and I noticed a guy and his
daughter walk in front of my car to get to his which happened
to be behind mine. When I got inside the facility, I turned to
check on my ride like I always do, and saw him taking pictures.
I thought it was cool and weird at the same time. He actually
waited until I got inside to do this. I guess he thought it might be
weird to ask me if he could take pictures. I would be all about it.
"Go for it guy, take as many as you want."

Congrats on your new Camaro, they are no doubt attention getters and as you will find out sometimes unwelcome attention. You'll have people follow you just to get a longer look at you and lets not forget the cops you'll get there unwelcome attention also. LoL

The other day I was at a stop light I was the fourth car back, the other lane only had 1 car in the lane. I'm waiting for the light to change , and I look to my right and an older guy about 70 is pulled up next to me just checking out my car lol. He still had to more spots he could have moved up to wait for the light. Either that or his depth perception was way off

Thanks yall

A few days ago, my teenage daughter called me on the phone. She said, "Dad! Some girls from my high school just posted some pictures on Facebook. They saw this awesome Camaro parked near where they were, so they took some pictures of it, and posted them just to say how cool the car looked. And, Dad: It's our car! You are in the car!"

Sure enough, I had been parked earlier in the afternoon, waiting to meet somebody. Without even knowing it, shutterbugs were grabbing shots of the bitchin' Camaro.

My daughter messaged the girls (who she is only distantly acquainted with from school), and at first they did not believe her claim that this was HER car... however, she had plenty of pics of her OWN with which to prove ownership. Now her social status has been elevated even further!

I was 20 when I ordered and received my '83 Z28. Glad to see todays's 20 year olds feel the same way about Camaros as I did/do.
