Doesn't seem to matter what they're driving either, a pickup, a junker, or minivan, or especially a mustang, they feel compelled to race. Have to admit I kinda like that, I do enjoy looking at them in the rearview mirror!


ALL THE TIME ... EVERY TIME AT A LIGHT!
I just smile and give it a few rpm's watch them take off like a bullet, I get a good laugh when they get pulled over 1/4 mile down the street!!

Driving it home from the dealership within 5 minutes of home and was chased down by a guy in a truck until I had to stop at a light. After a few photos from his cell camera he yelled "thats the baddest thing I have ever seen!".

Normally don't drive stuff for attention because I could care less about that, but as others have said you dont have to go very far to generate significant attention in a short period of time with this thing.

23 years ago we'd throw a car seat in the back of our 1972 Z28 as we were heading down the highway our young daughter casually said from her seat " go faster Dad " go faster. She now can't wait to go for a ride in the ride in ZL1.

I call that coincidence

Hahah true.


Hope I'm not hijacking your threadd but i have a cool SS experience I thought I'd share since I'm here. When I got my camaro in 2009 it was one of the first in Cleveland. I was sitting at a light at this sick red Ferrari rolls up next to me.
A red 360 with blacked out windows so i try to sneak a picture as I'm doing so the driver window rolls down...the guy looks at me then scans the car up and down and says ''damn' I'd rather be driving that.'' The light changes and he zoomed off...
Just thought it was cool that someone with a super car was so impressed by the Camaro.

Cool story. It nice that supercar owners respect the Camaro. Most people lusted after a '68 to '69 Camaro when they were younger. I know I did. Right after I got mine and they were really rare, I had a guy and his passenger slow down and turn their heads to look at mine.

Yeah, I'm going to have to drive it someday. Being the dead of winter I brought it home from the dealer on Dec. 15th and haven't had it out since. Anyone else have a 2 month old car with 38 miles on it, LOL? Everyone likes the pictures though.

Driving home on the freeway and something in my peripheral vision told me to look left. I turn and here is this young woman approx 22 y/o driving with another female in the passenger seat checking out the car. The funny thing is she was craning her neck to get a good look,(tinted windows & black on black) I thought she was about to jump on top of the car. That's strange that never happens when my girlfriend is in the car with me?

Only had the car home for a week or so. Was driving through town and a guy in a black SS went by the other way. I was watching him to see if he noticed me or not. He ended up only seeing me at the last second and almost snapped his neck doing a double take before I was out of his field of vision.
