Cool WHO CAN GO OUT IN PUBLIC IN THEIR CAR WITHOUT CAUSING MASSIVE ATTENTION???

I just got back from a day's worth of driving and errands and EVERYWHERE I went, I got admiration and positive feedback on my Camaro AND the RJT COLOR...

I feel like a "Rock Star" wherever I go, and I still LOVE that feeling and will enjoy it as long as it lasts...it doesn't bother me a bit...I just get a bigger and bigger "PERMAGRIN" the further I drive and the more compliments I get...

I will say it yet again, this car is a "happy pill" and I wish GM could "bottle" the joy and elation I feel every time I go anywhere in my "ROCKETSHIP"...

I even had the best compliment today of the entire 3 months of owning my "baby" and that was by a teenager in a very "fast and tricked out" Mustang, and he says to me, "I bet that car is FAST"...(keep in mind I have the 2LT/RS V6)...I don't even bother telling people anymore that it's not an SS if they don't ask, because most people don't "get it" when I try to explain that the RS is a V6...

So, I tell this kid that "Yes, this car is very fast for ME, and much faster than the last car I drove, and I bet your car is very fast too"(I try to be polite and respectful to all car enthusiasts)...he says to me, which I still cannot believe, "I think your car is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy faster than mine"...can anyone believe this kid???...I said, yes, it's a "ROCKETSHIP" to me...

Have I ever mentioned to anyone on this forum that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this car!!!!!!!............
(maybe once or twice...lol...)

I feel the same way! I live in a pretty small community. Like 500-800 people in my town, and prolly 8k in the entire county. Anywhere I go everyone stares, asks ?s about it, you know. And driving on the road everyone turns when I go by. My dad has drove it a few times and I swear he's gonna cause a wreck, he watches everyone else looking at the car instead of the ROAD!! lol I get on to him all the time about it. Cuz when he wants to take it for a spin, I'm right there in the passenger seat!

When we were in Grand Rapids, MI last Friday evening. My wife was shopping and I took the time to go park way out in the mall parking lot.

I was expecting some peace and quiet. Boy was I ever wrong. Constant stream of people coming over (mind you this was way out in the furthest part of the lot) wanting to talk about my car, "Rosie!"

While it was not what I expected, I love talking about this car.

I much like "prima" Donna, love this baby!

I have really had some great experiences lately too. I went to my grandson's flag football game Monday night, people stopped in the road to look at her, then when I was leaving a guy walked up and stuck his head in the window and asked,"Is it as fabulous as they say?" I said "Absolutely!" As I drove out of the sports park every eye was on the car, and 10 year-old boys jumped up on benches and shouted; "Look! There's the new Camaro!" Last night 2 kids on their skateboards followed me into the garage when I got home. I invited them in and let them take a look. I am sometimes over whelmed with all this, I feel that this is what's right, what's right about America, and that I'm one of the lucky few that have an American hero in my garage!

RM - You are so right. To me this car (even though this country has enough problems) is a sign of what is right about this nation.

Truer words are never spoken.

"AMERICAN HERO"...I like that...it sure is to all of us Camaro enthusiasts....

I forgot to say that when I was at the cemetery today to "visit" my Dad and Mom, as I was leaving, a worker driving a tractor was coming towards me, and I looked in my rear-view mirror as I was driving away from him, and saw his head facing backwards, still looking at my car, and the tractor almost going off the little cemetery path...

Last time I was at the cemetery, I was a "ROCK STAR"!!!...I posted a whole thread about that cool adventure...I felt like that again today...

We rented a Yellow 2LT a few months back (I rented this car to surprise my bf but then I fell in love with it...), anyway we came out from doing some shopping and there were like 10people looking at it walking all around and taking pictures. Kind of awkward since it wasnt even really ours Next time this happens it will be ours though And it will be white. and RS. Cant wait.

I don't know how long you've had you car, but last Spring it was ridiculous. People would actually jump out into the road in front of me to make me stop just so they could look at my car.
When I would come out of a store, there would be a large group of people standing around taking pictures. It was crazy.
But in my area (S.W. Florida) people are actually getting use to seeing the new Camaro's. It's still a big deal, but nothing like it was last Spring.

Such a beautiful day today in SE PA. My wife and I took a drive through West Chester and decided to stop for a drink at a street side cafe'. Sipping a brew in eyeshot where I parked, it was a blast to see the passersby stop, and look, and smile. Literally 20 different people stopped their walk to take a better look (some into the windows). My wife and I could not count the amount of "thumbs up" and "nice car" comments we heard today. I even got a wave and "thumbs up" from a teal Mustang driver.

World peace is eminent!

We went to Sports Clips to get hubby's hair cut. The girls had to come out and see the Camaro when we left. They asked him to drive it by the front so they could see it up close. Everywhere we go, people gawk, some with mouths wide open. The Camaro is is the most beautiful car on the road. A stunning beauty.

I attend a huge car show every week and past 2 weeks I've taken the Maro there. It really gets looked at. Its really just a bonus because Ive loved these damn things since my first one in 1990. I love how the Camaro is getting some well deserved attention after all this time.

Everyone everywhere I go give a thumbs up or want to talk, or say they too had a Camaro in High School.
This car is the perfect medicine to put a bounce in your step and just enjoy meeting and talking to people. ALWAYS a positive response.

Thank you everyone for knowing EXACTLY what I'm talkin' 'bout...

AND, to all of you out there that are still patiently waiting for their car to arrive, believe me and every other 5th Gen Camaro owner, THE WAIT IS WORTH IT!!!...you will all(soon, I hope)know EXACTLY what I mean...

I will be just as happy when you get your cars as I am for myself...

This car and all my "forum buddies" are my tickets to HAPPINESS!!!...

I cannot believe the love and support that the Camaro community has shown to me, a total stranger, all brought together for the LOVE of the CAMARO...

What an amazing group of "Camaro Comrades", as the Fbodfather calls us...

I love my ride. I am like the rest of you. I love talking about it and showing it off. I get compliments everywhere I go.

I was coming through baltimore a month ago at night. There was a 370Z driving erratically trying to catch up with me. My wife and I could hear the passenger yelling out the window about how much she loved the car. They were taking pictures and doing loving gestures. I just kept grinning.
