This car is dangerous!

Driving along M-59 and coming up on I-94...this guy in a station wagon of some sort is hanging out his window giving me the thumbs up for the Camaro and yelling :nice ride, man!" Pops his head back into the car just in time to see a stopped pickup in front of him. The wagon locks up the brakes, swerves onto the shoulder, missing the pickup's rear bumper by inches. The guy behind the wagon locks them up to and would have hit the wagon if the guy had not swerved to the shoulder!

You are 100% correct. A similiar thing happened to me on my test drive last week. We were hanging a left going back to the delearship when a car coming from the left (which had the red and we had the green) ran the red light and came to a screeching halt in the middle of the road just missing us! Another car (4th Gen Camaro) slowed down to the side of us and almost caused a wreck as well. That was 2 incidents during a 10 minute test drive. WTF will happen when I get mine?! We'll see.

I warned you It was amazing we made to Florida and back to Oshawa at Christmas without being run off the road or someone else! Closest to an accident was going through Atlanta...You also have to resist road rage-when people are tailgating and swerving it's usually just to get a picture

Yeah I agree hellraiser, we have had ours for a little over a week now. Too many close calls. I found it easier just to pull over and talk to them, take a few pics ect... We are in a small town so most of the people have atleast seen us, not as bad as the first couple of days. It will get better as more are released. I enjoy the looks, but it's not worth it when they try and kill themselves or other just to try and catch you for pic. Be safe and pay attention to everyone because they are not paying attention to anything except YOU!!!

I know the feeling, I drive a 1969 c-10 custom pickup. Restored original. I get people yelling at me, leaving notes that they want to buy it, I get checked out at stoplights. Same deal as this new camaro. However, chicks don't seem to dig it as much as the guys, sucks. I just bought a 78 trans am, and its totally beat up right now. When I am out driving, people are going around the block to get a second look, I could not pump gas without people coming over to talk with me and asking if i wanted to sell it. The fact that this is going on with a new car, shows GM still has it.

Aren't there a lot of people on M-59 that drive like that? I can imagine it is probably worse when you're in a Camaro!
