IF U HAVE A RED CAMARO READ THIS!!

I ordered a 1lt camaro about a week ago and i chose black as my color. I was going to choose red but some people sho the idea down so i was like i dont want it to get ridiculed. Now i want the red againg cause i saw a black camaro on the street and didnt really stand out. It didnt look like the camaro (if u know what i mean). SO WHAT IM ASKING IS IF YOU HAVE A RED CAMARO DOES IT LOOK SICK AND DOES ANY1 GIVE U SHIT FOR IT?

Why would you get ridiculed for buying a red camaro. Any examples of what you are talking about. I used to own a red camaro, and I absolutely loved it! Amazing color!

Are you kidding? You'll have to fight people off the car not on it.

Not to mention since Chevy pulled Vic Red from 2010 Vette (if the factory ever does reopen...). So it's more unique too. No more Vic Red vettes :(

Umm...red is the alltime "All-American-Sportscar-Color"

Why would anybody give you crap?

When someone pulls up in a Ferrari...do they mock him because it's red?

Trust me man...Red is one of the most wanted colors! I saw Victory Red in person and it was awesome. If you want red...get red.

(PS..I'm with you...black hides too many lines IMHO). The Grill just disappears and it seems like one big mass of black).

Let me know what you decide...I ordered black also but after seeing it in person I am not so sure. I saw a Yellow one with black stripes and how the colors contrast , makes me realize how the black with the black grill/fascia really looses some of the detail, and even the lines on the car in black are hard too see. I really liked the yellow/black, but me wife thinks it looks kind of gay, so I am leaning towards Victory Red with aftermarket flat black stripes all the way front to back. whatayathink???

The first camaro I saw on the street was red and I didn't like it.. but that was a quick drive buy with the driver at a stop light and me driving by at about 20 mph. It was a 2SS

Get what you want....not what everyone else wants. You are the one driving it. I saw a red one in person......I thought it was nice but I will stick with my black. My husband paints cars and planes for a living so I am contemplating custom stripes on the car. We will wait and see.

Good choice. Might I recommend a set of painted glossy black rally stripes with that. Makes the car really pop!

I was thinking about getting stripes. When people see this car I want them to say wow whats that. I want this car to be that memory to look back on and say that my car was kick ass

i thought blacked suited this car better...it made it look like the beast that it is....and red in my opinion doesn't look right on it because the camaro doesn't have a finesse look like say a ferrari or corvette...its more like a muscular rugged beast ready to eat your children

to me black or silver look best on the camaro...silver accentuates the lines and black makes it look more menacing...and the other colors just seem awkward while cyber grey isn't bad but not as good as silver...oh and yellow shows off the lines better than the red

but who cares...get what you think looks good...we all have different tastes and the camaro is going to look menacing and cool no matter what

A red Camaro is gay???? I'm betting your friends all drive manly hondas while sipping their zima. Here is my advice. Find some friends with some brains because those people are all complete morons and will lead you down a path of destruction

SERIOUSLY!! those guys are hating on you... red is an awesome color that will intimidate and impress.. they can call it gay, but when yer pickin up all the gurlies it won't matter.. don't let their jealousy get in the way of what you want... personally i went with the more subdued red jewel tint coat... but vic red is killer... if thats what YOU want go for it...

That's what I believe. It's not about what people think when looking at my car, it's what I think when looking at my car.

When it comes to Red sports cars it is anything but girlie. Order the red and while you wait for the car try and get in touch or something. As others have said here F those that would dog you for the red. Anyone that gives you shit about it is just upset because they know that it is something they will never be able to afford.
